I would like to know what the pros and cons are of creating an extension method v a partial view. From my understanding, htmlHelper extension methods are better as they enable one to unit test the view.
e.g. Assert.AreEqual(Html.Price(), "<td><tr><td>Price</td><td>4.50</td></tr>");
where the Price() method contains the presentation logic.
Since both the extension method and partial view are reusable, what then is the point / benefit of a partial view?
I am having some trouble with returning a View in response to an ActionResult method being invoked. In my view I have a ViewData which holds a value which is being read. Current process.. user selects 1 of three radio buttons, and clicks a button to apply the selection, which in turn triggers method which sets the form ..
Now in my controller, I change the value in the ViewData and simply which to return to the View();. Here is we're the fun starts.. I receive the following message, and cannot get around it. The view 'GridEditingMode' or its master was not found. The following locations were searched:
I have a list of items(surveys) displayed on my home page. When I click the edit button for a particular item I have a modal pop up with the items details to edit. When the user clicks Save I submit the form via ajax. Depending on whether ModelState.IsValid == true I want to update the modal with validation information or close the modal and update the list of items with the new information.
This is how I am submitting the form:
The only thing I can think to do is return JSON from my controller with a flag indicating the state of the ModelState.IsValid and the corresponding partial that I should show.
1) How would I do this?
2) Is there a better way?
I found this: [URL]
but it seems more likely that I am going about the whole thing incorrectly.
I have a Controller set up for a certain View. This View contains 2 partial Views (ascx files). Each partial View has a Controller method that yields its DataModel. The containing View doesn't currently display any data, but just serves as a container for the 2 partial Views.
Here's the problem: The Index action of the containing View runs, but the Controller methods for the partial Views don't, so I get a null exception when the Model tries to render out the data that should be available. I'm using MVC 1.0, which is something of a bummer, since it seems that the next version is supposed to have something other than "RenderPartial" that will assist with this very issue. However, since I'm stuck for the moment with 1.0, can anyone give some advice on getting the Controller methods to run for the partial Views?
I have a partial view FileUpload which contains a file control. <ul> <li> <label> <span>*</span>Select the file: [code]...

I need to upload the files and add file details to database using jquery also need to retain the values in the textboxes (which is to be saved in another "Save" click) after the upload function is called
How can I call HtmlHelper methods outside of a view? I want to call Html.ActionLink from a C# method. Then use Response.Write to write the output from ActionLink to the output stream of a view. Is there a server side equivalent of HtmlHelper.ActionLink?
Members view (index) that lists members that users can select to show a partial view in the same view with details for the selected memberUses jquery (Ajax.ActionLink) to call a partial view method in the members controller to then load the members detail sectionWorks fine up to here....but I'd like to load the partial view with "member" details for a default or random member on initial load -- ie not through the Actionlink selectionHow do I invoke the partial view method on the initial load?
Let's say there is a textbox and a dropdownlist in mainview page, these two values are used by three partial views as well. when I use Html.RenderAction to post action to those three partial views, how to pass these two values to those partial views and in those views how to get these two values as a part of a object to send to database.
've created a Search partial view and it works, except for my view model. What i mean is, the partial view sends a string to my ActionResult Method, but only a string, that is not related to the view model that the partial view is built in. If i tell my ActionResult method to receive the view model in which the partial view is built in, it always tells me that i have null values. Here's my code This is my partial view:
Now here is my Model in my MoviesSearch view model:
I have added a jquery datepicker on my MVC view. This view has a partial view. I need to filter my partial view based on the datepicker's selected date. I need to show buttons on partial view based on the date.
I have added partial view like this:
div id="dvGames" class="cornerdate1"> % Html.RenderPartial("Partial3"); %> /div>
making my first steps with asp.net mvc and I actually create a (very) small website.I have 1 controller : TasksController1 view : Tasks/Index.aspx1 Partial View : Tasks/AvailableSorting.ascx In my controller I have 2 methods :
In my Tasks/Index.aspx, I add my partial view (<% Html.RenderPartial("AvaliableSorting"); %>)
That sounds simple. But, It just doesn't work : the Index return a list of Task and the parial view (should) return a list of string.The index.aspx works perfectly, but the partial view doesn't get the right model ! he gets the model of the Index page (list of Task).
