How To Make A Custom Strongly Typed Html Helper Method

Dec 2, 2010

Now I found out how to create custom html helpers

using System;
namespace MvcApplication.Helpers {
public class InputlHelper {
public static string Input(this HtmlHelper helper, string name, string text) {
return String.Format("<input name='{0}'>{1}</input>", name, text);
}
}
}

Now how to turn it into a strongly typed helper method InputFor Like it is in the framework?I don't need the Html.TextBoxFor method, I know it exists. I am just curious in how to implement this behavior myself and used this as a simple example.PS. I was looking in the mvc source code but couldn't find a trace of this mysterious TextBoxFor. I only found TextBox. Am I looking at the wrong code?

MVC 2 - Add A Default Property To A Strongly Typed Html.Textbox Helper

Apr 22, 2010

The strongly typed helpers are now written like this -

<%= Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.State) %>

I need to add a default value to a textbox. In the prior version of Asp.Net MVC it was easy to assign a default value. I thought doing the following would work in MVC 2-

<%= Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.CountyId, new{ value = 840 })%>

This, however, does not work for me in Asp.Net MVC 2. The value is still blank for the textbox. I want to make sure that this isn't some random error that I am having. Has anyone else encountered the same problem? I have searched and searched to find more information on the default property for the html helpers in MVC 2, but I can't find anything. Does anyone out there know how to correctly assign a default value to a textbox in Asp.Net MVC 2?

How To Make VisualStudio Intellisense Work In Html Properties Of Strongly Typed View

Feb 20, 2010

I think the title says it all, but to be clear:

If I put something like:

<%=Model.Project.Id %>

in the body of a strongly typed view, I get full intellisense for my model.

However, if I put:

<a href="/Projects/Edit/<%=Model.Project.Id %>">

With the script being written within an html property (in this case the href="" property), the intellisense doesn't work.I imagine this is a limitation of VisualStudio, but it seems this is a very common task and should be able to work. Is there a fix for this? Does my version of VisualStudio have a problem?

HTML Codes In Strongly Typed HTML Helpers

Jan 20, 2011

So, I am having a hard time getting this to work. I am trying to add some typographic HTML codes to some labels I have strongly typed to my model.

<%: Html.LabelFor(m => m.Name) %>

I am using data annotations to customize the DisplayName of the property:

[DisplayName("Your friendís name")]
public string Name { get; set; }

However the actual code is being displayed for the label:

Your friendís name

I have also tried just using the old write method:

<%= Html.LabelFor(m => m.Name) %>

C# - How To Access Attributes Of Properties In The Model From Strongly Typed Custom HtmlHelper

Mar 18, 2011

I have a view that is strongly typed and its model is of type LogOnModel. That LogOnModel has anotated properties like this one:

[Required(ErrorMessage = "Please enter your password")]
[DataType(DataType.Password)]
[Display(Name = "Password", Description = "Your secreet password")]
public string Password { get; set; }

All of them has Display anotation with Display.Descripion property set. I want to create HtmlHelper extension method that will output <span> containg the value of Display.Description property. So for example if I called my extension method DescriptionFor than this code:

<%: Html.DescriptionFor(m => m.Password) %>

should produce following html: <span>Your secreet password</span>

Strongly-typed Or Weakly-typed Binding In Codebehind In Front End?

Feb 23, 2010

So my question is more in relation to what people consider to be the best practice and why:

I've been dropping literals into pages and repeaters and binding them in code behind for a while. Is this considered bad practice?

ie:

ASPX Page:

<asp: Literal id="litTextToInsert" runat="Server" />

Code Behind:

litTextToInsert.Text = objData.MyText;

OR (repeater):

[code]....

I personally dont like doing this as i find it makes it harder for me to know if someone changed the field name, or mis typed it during development - the other way you won't know until the page loads.

With the strongly typed version if something changes in your DAL etc the build will break - letting me know I've messed up.

Why do so many people appear to use weakly typed code in ASP.Net (in examples, MVC, etc)?
Am i missing something?

MVC: When To Use Custom HTML Helper Methods Vs Html.RenderAction

Feb 10, 2010

It's a little unclear for me on when to use a custom helper method and when to use RenderAction and also when to simply use ViewData instead. Some of their functions overlap slightly.

For example, if I were to create a Category navigation bar, would I create a new helper method and place that in some partial view? I had initially though of doing this, but I read on some blog to use RenderAction instead.

Assume the list of categories is coming from some data source.

MVC :: Custom Strong Type HTML Helper For Checkboxes?

Oct 1, 2010

MVC contains a strong typed HTML Helper (HTML.CehckBoxFor()) this takes a bool and returns a bool. To make the URL smaller I am thinking to change the bool values on the model object to byte or somthing like that so the url only contains &Parameter=1.

I have found this snippet :

[Code]....

But I have no clue how to turn this in to a strong typed HTML Helper for checkbox that takes byte instead of bool. Its also important that the model object is set with byte instead of bool.
