MVC :: Passing Json Collection Object From View To Action

Nov 1, 2010

I am trying to send json data from view to controller action. But the issue is the data is not populating in the action parameter List<Score>.

View Model:
public class Score
public int QuestionId { get; set; }
public int PrevAnswerId { get; set; }
public int CurrAnswerId { get; set; }
public string CurrAnswerName { get; set; }

Json Data look like:
{QuestionId:1, PrevAnswerId:3, CurrAnswerId:3, CurrAnswerName:'Known to Broker'},
{QuestionId:2, PrevAnswerId:7, CurrAnswerId:7, CurrAnswerName:'Completed'},
{QuestionId:3, PrevAnswerId:10, CurrAnswerId:10, CurrAnswerName:'Report'}

On window load, I will construct the Json object using "eval()" function and do some operation in the data before its save. On Save Click, I will call the action through the ajax call.

url: url,
type: "GET",
dataType: 'json',
data: {score: ScoreJson},
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
success: function () {
error: function () {
} });

public ActionResult SaveScore(List<Score> score)
// do something...

But here score comming as collection of 3 elements with zero(for interger property)/null(for string property) values. When I checked in the request I found the data in "parama" property like.

"Score%5b0%5d%5bQuestionId%5d=1 &Score%5b0%5d%5bPrevAnswerId%5d=3 &Score%5b0%5d%5bCurrAnswerId%5d=3 &Score%5b0%5d%5bCurrAnswerName%5d=Known+to+broker&
Score%5b1%5d%5bQuestionId%5d=2 &Score%5b1%5d%5bPrevAnswerId%5d=7 &Score%5b1%5d%5bCurrAnswerId%5d=7 &Score%5b1%5d%5bCurrAnswerName%5d=Completed&
Score%5b2%5d%5bQuestionId%5d=3 &Score%5b2%5d%5bPrevAnswerId%5d=10 &Score%5b2%5d%5bCurrAnswerId%5d=10 &Score%5b2%5d%5bCurrAnswerName%5d=Travelers+Report&".

But I am not sure why it is not getting populated in the score list. One full day I spent for this issue but till now I didnt find the solution for this issue.

Javascript - Passing JSON To Controller Action

Mar 7, 2011

I have the following javascript. Problem is if I enter one row in the table "ingredients" but I am getting 2 rows in the resulting pass to controller action after seralising into my C# object. But the second object is null? I checked the javascript and the variable "cnt" is 1 not 2. Why would that be?


$("#Save").click(function () {
var title = $("#recipetitle").val();
var category = $("#category").val();
var preptime = $("#prepTime").val();
var preptimeperiod = $("#lstPrepTime").val();
var cooktime = $("#cookTime").val();
var cooktimeperiod = $("#lstCookTime").val();
var rating = $("#rating").val();
var method = $("#method").val();
var jsontext = '{ "RecipeTitle": "' + title + '",';
jsontext += '"CategoryID":' + category + ',';
jsontext += '"PrepTime":' + preptime + ',';
jsontext += '"PrepTimePeriod":"' + preptimeperiod + '",';
jsontext += '"CookTime":' + cooktime + ',';
jsontext += '"CookTimePeriod":"' + cooktimeperiod + '",';
jsontext += '"Rating":' + rating + ',';
jsontext += '"Method":"' + method + '",';....................

MVC :: Pass Javascript Object Value To Controller?

Feb 9, 2010

Consider the following data


I need to use this data as an input to ajax request. For eg. consider a dropdownlist change event, I need to pass these values to the controller.

sample code

//dropdown change event
$("#TestReqID").change(function() {
var id = 10;
var testResults = "abc";
var inXML = "<xml>";
inXML = inXML + "<id>" + id + "</id>";
inXML = inXML + "<value1>" + testResults + "</value1>";
inXML = inXML + "</xml>"
$.getJSON("/Home/UpdateTest/Json/" + inXML, function(data) {
//success code goes here

in HomeController

public ActionResult UpdateTest(string obj)
if (HttpContext.Request.IsAjaxRequest())
Need to parse data in "obj" from ajax request
IPTests test = _service.GetIPTest(Convert.ToInt32(id));
return new JsonResult { Data = new { ipTestId = "0", testResults = "" } };
return View(test);

instead of xml string is it possible to use javascript object like

C# - How To Return Json From Action Method With Array Property

Mar 14, 2011

I am trying to return some data as json from an action method.

I have an employee object that looks like this:

public class Employee
public int EmployeeID {get; set;}
public string FirstName {get; set;}
public string LastName {get; set;}
//Other irrelevant properties

Then I have a view model as follows

public Class EmployeeViewModel
public Employee Supervisor{get; set;}
public List<EmployeeViewModel> Employees

I need to return a json object that looks exactly like this:

{id: 1, name: John, children: [
{id: 1, name: Joe, children: []},
{id: 1, name: Rob, children: []}

For now I only need to go to the second level as above, returning and supervisor and their staff members beneath them.

How would I go about returning this in my action method(I have the viewModel object hydrated already I just need to return it as json). My problem so far has been that the children property does not get populated.

MVC :: Pass ID Value To Home Controller Index Action?

Dec 31, 2010

My query is somehow related to passing the id values as parameters in MapRoute on RegisteredRoute method

routes.MapRoute("MachineGroupList:, PhysicalMachine/ListGroupMachine/{used}/Page/{page}", new {controller="PhysicalMachine", action="ListGroupMachine",id="XNA"});

How can i use {used} value in id ?

My Page have:

<%: Html.RouteLink("<<<", "MachineGroupList", new{used=Model.UsedBy,page=(Model.PageIndex-1),id=Model.UsedBy})%>

My controller for this Action is:

public ActionResult ListGroupMachine(string id, int page=0)

Everytime I call this Action the Id should be of groupBy column; over here it is 'Used' First time I have called this Action from <%html.ActionLink("Machine","ListGroupMachine", new {id=Model.UsedBy})%> But in my Html.RouteLink the id object is not identified in MapRoute method...

Want To Try And Test An Action Method On Controller That Itself Tests If IsAjaxRequest() Is True?

May 28, 2010

I'm just starting to use the TestHelpers in MvcContrib. I want to try and test an action method on my controller that itself tests if IsAjaxRequest() is true. I've used the same code that is shown in the TestHelper samples to set up the TestControllerBuilder

_controller = new StarsController();
_builder = new TestControllerBuilder();

So that _controller has all the faked/mocked HttpContext inside it, which is really great. But what do I do now to force IsAjaxRequest() on the internally faked Request object to return true?
