MVC :: Title Attribute In Rendering Link With Html.ActionLink?

In keeping with the SEO friendly nature of MVC, shouldn't there be a way to designate the 'title' attribute when building an ActionLink?

Html.ActionLink() Gives An Empty Link When Use It Inside Html.RenderAction()?
I have a Microsoft MVC project with an action "Foo" whose view ("Foo.aspx") contains the lines:

<%= Html.ActionLink("mylinktext1", "bar") %>
<%= Html.ActionLink<MyController>(x => x.Bar(), "mylinktext2") %>

When I hit this from a web browser or load it from an AJAX call, it properly returns:

<a href="/bar">mylinktext1</a>
<a href="/Bar">mylinktext2</a>

But when I call the action from another view like this:

<% Html.RenderAction<MyController>(x => x.Foo()); %>

Then the links are rendered without targets.

<a href="">mylinktext1</a>
<a href="">mylinktext2</a>

Why would this be happening, and how do I work around it?

Use The Html 'title' Attribute With Html.Encode()?
I've been tryin to find an example of the syntax for getting an html 'title' for a string when using Html.Encode(). I want to display the full name in the mouseover title, if it's too long.

Is there a way to do this without wrapping the string in a < span >, i.e.

<span title = "<%=Html.Encode(model.Name) %>"> //displays the full name on mouseover
<%=Html.Encode(model.Name.Substring(0, 10))%>... //displays the name up to a max length

Or should I just do it this way?

MVC 3 RC Html.Actionlink Not Generating Link
I have a route (the first one listed) which looks like this:

"TopicRoute", // Route name
"forums/{forumSlug}/{topicSlug}", // URL with parameters
new { controller = "Forums", action = "Topic"} // Parameter defaults

I can browse to: /forums/my-forum/my-topic and the page loads fine. Yet I have a Html.ActionLink that looks like: @Html.ActionLink(item.Title, "Topic", new { forumSlug ="my-forum", topicSlug = "my-topic" }) And it won't generate the correct link syntax for me? It generates: <a href="">My Topic</a>

Add Correct Checked Attribute When Rendering Html
It doesn't seem that the Html.CheckBoxFor helper adds the correct "checked" attribute when rendering the HTML. I have a bool property rendered like so:

<%= Html.CheckBoxFor(m => m.Visible) %>

And the outputted HTML is this:

<input type="checkbox" value="true" name="Visible" id="Visible">

Is there some particular reason it does not add the "checked" attribute when the value is true?

MVC :: Html.ActionLink / Create Query String Parameters In The Link?
I am using MVC to access custom reports which may be drill down reports. I use the convention of Controller/Action "Reports/Open/id/level"

Ok so we hit the top level report "including my query string parameters which could be different for each report Example /Reports/Open/1?CostCentreId=10000&year=2010

I want to open up my drill down, I am binding the data to display using a class , so far so good.

My sub report gets the query string parameters because I stored them in ViewData. In order to get back to the Top level report I have to create query string parameters in the link. How do I do this with an action link?

How To Add Attribute To Title Tag
I'm using webforms ASP.NET, with masterpages. I want to add a LANG attribute to the <title> tag. ASP.NET automatically generates a title tag. I've tried adding my own tag with an ID and runat="server", like this:

<title id="titleBlock" runat="server"></title>

When doing this, I can set an attribute like the following without any errors.

titleBlock.Attributes.Add("lang", "it");

However, ASP.NET wipes out my <title> tag completely and puts its own in without my LANG attribute. Is there any way to accomplish this?

Change The Title And Link Of The Last Link In Chain?
I have a SiteMapPath control and instead of default functionality like

Ajax.ActionLink Generated Markup Lacks Onclick Attribute?
I've got problem with generating ajax anchors. I'm using simple

Ajax.ActionLink("test", "Test", new AjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId="test", HttpMethod="GET" }) and the generated markup is:
<a data-ajax="true" data-ajax-method="GET" data-ajax-mode="replace" data-ajax-update="#test" href="/Home/Test">test</a>
which, obviously lacks the onclick="Sys.Mvc.AsyncHyperlink.handleClick(...)" attribute.

Web Forms :: Calendar Is Rendering With Extra Space In The Title?
I can't seem to get rid of this extra space in IE7. (IE8 I could, but I need to support IE7) The grey area is the same size as the blue area... If I align the title to "bottom" then I get the full size of the grey area above the title. Align to "top" and the grey area is below the blue. Usign the default, the grey area is split above and below as indicated int he screenshot.

How can i get rid of the grey? I just want the blue area. I've tried setting hte title height to 0px, but that does nothing. But if I set the height to something large, such as 200px, then I get 200px of blue and 200px of grey.

Adding Title Attribute To A Bulletedlist Hyperlink?
I have a bulletedlist that I want to put <a> tags on. .NET won't allow me to print the <a> directly to the list because it escapes the HTML. I can set the displaymode of the list to "HyperLink", but I can't see any way to add the title attribute to any generated links. Is this possible, or do I have to forget the BulletedList control and use a generic Repeater control?

MVC :: Get The Link Portion Of An ActionLink?
I amdeveloping a page that has an image element thathas its source set to anaction on a controller (e.g., "/controller/action". The problem that Iam having is that Idon't see a built in way to generate aURL (i.e., like anActionLink's URL) without manually constructing one.At the moment, I am manually constructing the URL, but I want to move away from this. Before I write my own helper method, I thought I would check to see if one it already available. Does such a method exist?

BTW, this is using MVC2, VS 2010.

If I execute above code in ASP.Net MVC 2, I get the following output on my screen:

MVC :: Url.RouteUrl Vs Html.ActionLink Vs Url.Content
I was reading the ASP.NET MVC Best Practices article by Rashid, and got stuck in his description of creating UrlHelper extensions. Doing this is easy enough, and I've adopted the practice into all of my projects. I noticed, however, that Rashid used Url.Content to generate the url for the home page, and Url.RouteUrl for all the other urls. Why is this? What is the difference between the two?

The link to the blog post is here:

I've used Html.ActionLink in my Views, but I'm wondering what difference it would be if I used Url.RouteUrl instead. Does anyone have a good grasp of what makes these helpers different, and where they are best used?

MVC :: ASCX Html.ActionLink Not Showing
I assume this linkis correct

Html.ActionLink("Edit", "Edit" , new {Controller = "Item", id = item.Product_GUID});

the books tell me things i have read etc.i should render html as <a href="/Edit/Item?id=foo>Edit</a>

I am sending them to "another controller" to edit the item...

But this is not rendering the hyperlink in my browser, UGH....

this code is in a ascx page so i can call it with partialaction.

All i can think is that its not working because its 5am and i have been up since 9am yesterday..

MVC :: Passing A String To Html.ActionLink?
I have a page where quick links are dynamically added from the database, when the user clicks on one of these links I want to go away and do a search based on the text of the quick link.

For example
Meat etc

It is straightforward to use Html.ActionLink with an ID, however I need to use the text of the link as this will not match to an ID in a database, reather it will match the column of a row in the database.

So my database may have

ItemID - 266
ItemName - Strawberry
ItemCategory - Fruit

The quick links I will displaywill correspond to data in ItemCategory, therefore the Search Action I redirect to needs to know the text of the quick link in order to go to the database and do a search.

how I would so something like

<%= Html.ActionLink(cattegoryName,
"Search", new { category=categoryName})%>

Would I need to change the global.asax to handle a cagegoryName field and could it be a string rather than an integer

Using CSS In ActionLink Inside HTML.Partial
I'm having problems getting my CSS class to style an actionlink inside a html.partial. In building my test site, I've used the template beginning from ASP.NET and the standard login portion. My Index page works fine as the _Layout.cshtml does reference my css page. In _LogOnPartial, I have the following listed (there is more but this is what's important I believe):

else {
<ul style="display:inline;">;
<li style="list-style:none; display:inline;">
@Html.ActionLink("Sign In", "LogOn", "Account", null, new { @class = "signin" })

My CSS for "signin" is:

.signin {
text-decoration: none;
font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
color: White;

When I look at the source for the page after debugging, it shows:

<a class="signin" href="/Account/LogOn">Sign In</a>

That looks right but it's not showing it correctly. The font isn't Helvetica and it is underlined and not white. I don't reference the css sheet in the LogOnPartial but I didn't think I'd have too.

MVC :: Html.ActionLink Parameter Order
I've never been able to understandwhy it is that some things are madein a particular way, and Html.ActionLink is one of these. In Global.asax, if I wantto create a route, it has the format:


The order of the necessary parameters here is "name/controller/action/extra params". When using Html.ActionLink, the parameter order is "name/action/controller/extra params", which is much the same but with two of them switched around. To make things more confusing, the rendered html from the Html.ActionLink has the original order "controller/action/extra params" with the name inside of the anchor tag. Why do this? It's easy enough to memorize that the order is switched for absolutely no reason I can discerne, but why do it in the first place?
