MVC :: Why Are HTML Helper Methods In MVC Are Inside Server Tags

Jan 9, 2010

I am new to MVC. why HTML helper methods are inside asp server tags?

for example <%=Html.Textbox("Textbox1")%>

are they equivalnet to web form server tags. Like in web forms we have

<asp:TextBox runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

If someone can kindly explain.

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.

C# - Pass Model Values As Javascript Function Parameters From Inside Mvc Html Helper Such A Html.Radio?

Jul 20, 2010

I think I need to drop in some escape characters, but I'm not quite sure where. Here is the javascript function I'm attempting to call:

function setData(associateValue, reviewDateValue) {
var associate = document.getElementById("Associate");
var reviewDate = document.getElementById("ReviewDate");
associate.value = associateValue;
reviewDate.value = reviewDateValue;

Here is the asp .net mvc line where I'm attempting to create a Radio button with a click event that calls the above function and passes data from the model as javascript parameter values.

<%= Html.RadioButton("Selected", item.Selected, new { onClick="setData('<%=item.Associate%>','<%=item.ReviewDate%>' )" } )%>

The above throws a bunch of compile issues and doesn't work. A call such as the following does call the javascript, but doesn't get the data from the model.

<%= Html.RadioButton("Selected", item.Selected, new { onClick="setData('item.Associate','item.ReviewDate' )" } )%>
<%= Html.RadioButton("Selected", item.Selected, new { onClick="setData('item.Associate','item.ReviewDate' )" } )%>
<% String functionCall = String.Format("setData('{0}','{1}')", Html.Encode(item.Associate), Html.Encode(item.ReviewDate )) ; %>
<%= Html.RadioButton("Selected", item.Selected, new { onClick=functionCall } )%>

Using C# HTML Tags Inside GridView

Apr 14, 2010

I have a SharePoint web part that I wrote in C# which is used to display SQL Server data based on user selections. I pull the data with a DataReader, fill a DataSet with it, and set that DataSet as the DataSource in a GridView and add that control to my page:

GridView outputGrid = new GridView();
outputGrid.CssClass = "OutputGrid";
outputGrid.DataSource = flipped_ds1;
outputGrid.RowDataBound += outputGrid_RowDataBound;

This gives me a simple HTML table with a declared CSS class and that's about it. The only problem I'm facing is that line breaks in the data fields are not being rendered at all. I'm simply getting a block of text that ignores the breaks that are present in the database when it's rendered to HTML. In stepping through my code, I see that the newlines are coming in as text in the form of "". I tried a regex:

I'm trying to develope a collapsible panel control with designer.

I have the following two classes:


and this one:


In fact, the designer class is a copy of a sample class in MSDN and I only tried to customize it to work for me. I'm not sure if all methods are necessary or not.

I have the following two questions:

1- When I use this contrl in design mode, I can add or delete controls to it, in the html view, tags are not updated. so when I close the page and open it again, all changes are lost.

2- I have added this control to the same project that is using this control. Isn't there any way to have this controil in tool box?

MVC :: Create 2 Html Helper

Mar 15, 2010

I am trying to create 2 Html helpers but that use the String Type as in MVC 2.

1. Html.FileFor Would render something like: <input type="file"

2. Html.Buttom and Html.Submit that would render <input type="button" or <input type="submit" In this case I suppose it makes no sense to have the For.

I know how to do (2) unless there would be something more than rendering the help and defining the Html attributes. However (1) I don't know how to do it

MVC :: Getting The ID For A Model Property From HTML Helper

Jan 25, 2011

Is there a way to retrieve the client side ID for a model property similar to how the helpers like LabelFor etc generate the ID? For example, I have a model with a DateOfBirth property. I want to hook up that field to a jQuery DatePicker. Normally, I would hook up the date picker like this:


This works fine but hard codes the DateOfBirth property name. Ideally, I would like to use this:


Is this already available out of the box somewhere? I just created an extension method on the HtmlHelper class that does exactly this, but I wondered if there was already something built-in so I don't have to reinvent and test the wheel.
