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).
"When a partial view is instantiated, it gets its own copy of the ViewDataDictionary object that is available to the parent view. The partial view therefore has access to the data of the parent view. However, if the partial view updates the data, those updates affect only the partial view's ViewData object. The parent view's data is not changed."Is there a common way around this? For instance I have a View containing two Partial Views (User Controls) that source the same data from the Parents ViewData. The first Partial View is able to update (add/delete) certain data from the Parents View Data, however the second Partial View sources the same data but obviously isn't reflecting the changes owing to the above MSDN statement.
I have a partial view that has only a dropdown, i have called this partial view from a view. I can able to pass the model to this partial view and it renders successfully. However when some user selects a particular text from the dropdown, the corresponding value should be passed to view and it should be displayed in the label in view.
I have a page that I created using the Razor engine to allow updates to a database. One of the fields is a date time field, so I thought I'd try to implement a date picker.
So I was looking at a blog article here , and attepted to follow it through, and implement the suggestions within my code, but I get the following error"Value cannot be null or empty. Parameter name: name"
This is my main View
I read something about this being a bug in MVC2, but I'm using MVC3 and I was led to believe it had been fixed. Am I missing something here?
I would like to create one view for my CRUD actions. The view contains 3 basic DIV updatetargets ("search form", "search result listing" and "action" (would be create,detail,edit,delete). Basic flow would be: "Search" updates the "Search Result Listing", click on CRUD actions in listing would show partial view in "action".
how do I call to refresh the "Listing" after I do any add/update/delete without having user click search again?
I have a view which takes two objects: booking and list of reasons for canceling that booking.I have two classes: clsBooking, clsBookingCancelationReason I can read both objects in my view - no problems there. After I read the objects, I display the booking details and I generate a list of cancelation reasons in the following way:
The code above generates a list of cancelation reasons.How do I pick up the selected ReasonId from the list? I need to generate a link that will contain the bookingId and the selected reason for canceling the booking.I can get the bookingId out easily since it's stored in the Model...but how do I go about the selected ReasonId?
Like I said I'm not allowed to change this, so wont be able to go with suggestions doing that.
What the person that created this did not foresee, is that one might need put several partials of the same type and having the same view model (each in a form) on a view.
So I went ahead and did things the normal way (using Html.whateverFor<model => model.whatever) and wala!....the custom validation thing throws error messages for the specific form fields, next to each form in the view. I was suggested to create a "prefix" for each instance of the view model, and do something like this:
I am trying to implement an ajax form inside of a jquery ui dialog.
I have a view with a button that opens the modal dialog form, makes an ajax call to an action that loads a partial view into the dialog. The partial view consists of a form created via Ajax.begin form. When I post the form I close the modal and update a div on my main page. This all works fine.
The problem is, the next time I open the modal and submit the form the http POST for the form is called twice. The third time I open/submit the form is submitted 3 times and so on...
It seems as if the submit button/form is bound multiple times and I cant figure out how to fix this.
Here is my code...
first the jquery call to load the ajax form partial view and create the modal...
Is there any simple method to pass viewdata to masterpage. For example, I create a viewdata["test"] in the testing controller. I pass it to masterpage so the masterpage can show this value.Is there any simple method to do it? Can I use session to do it and how?
I created a base Controller for the other Controllers to derrive from, and in that controller I overrode the OnActionExecuting method so that each time any Controller executes a method, I can run some code. In that code I added a value to ViewData, and in the Master View I want to either display certain items or not based on the value of the ViewData item set. The problem is, once I get to the Master View, the ViewData doesn't have anything in it. I am not sure what I'm doing wrong.
I like ASP.NET MVC, because I like to have direct access to my web site's structure. However there's 1 thing that I don't like.
In Ruby on Rails to send data from Controller to View is really easy:
# Get a user in controller
@user = User.first(:id => 1)
# Display him in a view
<%= @user.id %>
In ASP.NET MVC it's much harder
// Controller User user = new User(1); ViewData["user"] = user; // View <% User user = (MyNamespace.User)ViewData["user"]; %> <%= user.Id %>
With this ViewData thing all benefits of static languages go away, and we waste time boxing/unboxing objects.
P.S. Don't tell me to use Model object, because this is also true for other variables like integer.
And another question:
I'm trying to implement a comfrtable access to data. Since I can't use LINQ to SQL as I use Postrgresql, I have to do it on my own. I'm tired of direct SQL queries, so I'm trying to implement something like this:
This ActionResult is executed multiple time accoording the number user selected from previous page..each and every student id and StudentType is passed by that view to this ActionResult. my question is there any way that in ViewData we can store all these id's and studentType's so that I can use these id' and StudentType's in other ActionResult? bec I need only these two things in other ActionResult? I can implement this using cache but I dont want to do with that.
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.
