.NET MVC Controller Parameter Optional?

Oct 5, 2010

I have the following scenario: my website displays articles (inputted by an admin. like a blog).So to view an article, the user is referred to Home/Articles/{article ID}.However, the user selects which article to view from within the Articles.aspx view itself, using a jsTree list.So I what I need to do is to be able to differentiate between two cases: the user is accessing a specific article, or he is simply trying to access the "main" articles page. I tried setting the "Articles" controller parameter as optional (int? id), but then I am having problems "using" the id value inside the controller.

SQL Server :: How To Set A Optional Parameter To NULL

Oct 29, 2010

I have got a problem about setting the optional parameter to NULL in sql sp. Initially I set all the parameters null in the sql sp. That's OK. But I would like to set the parameters to Null again if a particular parameter has a value of - 1 by using the "IF ELSE" statement block. However, the problem was that I was unable to set the parameter to NULL in the IF ELSE statement. So please correct my IF ELSE statement in the store procedure. This is really urgent and important for my project.

@MealTypeID Int,
@Gluten Bit = Null,
@Dairy Bit = Null,
@Egg Bit = Null,
@Fish Bit = Null,
@Veg Bit = Null,
@Pork Bit = Null,
@Beef Bit = Null,
@Soy Bit = Null,
@Sesame Bit = Null

MVC :: Model Not Validating Correctly In Controller. Optional Property With Required Children Fields

Oct 30, 2010

Basically I have RegisterModel2 that has a Person class. My requirement is that Phone Number and Address are not required for registration. But if they try to enter a Phone number of Address then it should validate it. Problem is that it is always stating that the child fields of Phone (area code, number) and child fields of Address (street1,city,etc) are required. Is there a way to annotate in the RegisterModel that a parent class is not Required but if any data in a child element is given then and only
then should the child elements be validated?

My Person EDM class has a nullable 0.1 -> 0.1 navigation property to Phone and Address.Here is the person class

public partial class Person

public class Person_Validation [code]....

The Person EntityObject has an optional/nullable Navigation Property to the Phone Object.

The Phone object has these annotations,[Code]....

I have RegisterModel defined as follows:

My View looks like this:

And here is my Controller Action it is posting to:

MVC :: Pass Parameter From Controller To View And Back To Another Controller?

Aug 16, 2010

I have a simple model where a Person has Gifts. I have a view which is a list of Gifts belonging to one Person.

My problem is with the Create action for a new Gift. I want it to default to the PersonID that we are already viewing the list of Gifts for. I tried simply passing the last PersonID (they are all the same)

Html.ActionLink("Create New", "Create", new { id = Model.Last().PersonID }) which works fine if there is already at least one Gift for that person but if this is the first Gift I don't have a value.

My Gift List controller knows the PersonID I want to pass but the view doesn't.

How do I pass this PersonID from my Gift List controller to my Gift Create controller via the Gift List view? Or is there a better way to do this?

Getting Null Parameter Value In Controller When MVC Route Fires?

Jan 12, 2011

I'm using a custom route to create the following URL (http://mysite/subscriber/12345) where 12345 is the subscriber number. I want it to run the ShowAll action in the Subscriber controller. My route is firing and using Phil's route debugger, when I pass in the above url, the route debugger shows ID as 12345.

My controller is accepting an int as subscriberID. When it fires, the controller throws the error "The parameters dictionary contains a null entry for parameter 'id' of non-nullable type 'System.Int32". Why does the route debugger show a value and the controller doesn't see it?

Here's my route (first one is the culprit)

new { controller = "Subscriber", action = "ShowAll", id=0 },
new { id = @"d+" } //confirm numeric
"Default", // Route name
"{controller}/{action}/{id}", // URL with parameters
new { controller = "Home", action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional } // Parameter defaults

I'm getting a null in the ShowAll action? Here is the action method signature:

public ActionResult ShowAll(int id)

MVC :: Dynamically Change The Controller During A Request Based Upon A Parameter?

Aug 11, 2010

I have a requirement whereby I need to be able to change the controller being used based upon a parameter. I am creating an application that needs to be dynamic enough to be able to change controllers on the fly. Let me explain further;

When the application starts a dictionary of custom controller names is loaded with a controller name as the key and a custom controller name as the value. This will be help in the application scope.

When a request is made I need to access the requested controller name, use that name and check to see if it matches a key in my controller dictionary and if so, replace the requested controller name with the custom controller name from the dictionary.


My dictionary will contain data as follows
Key: 'Home', Value: 'Home_IN'
Key: 'Customer', Value: 'Customer_BE'

Now, the following request is made 'User/Edit/1'. Does the controller name exist in the dictionary? No, continue with original request.

Now, the following request is made 'Home/Details/2'. Does the controller name exist in the dictionary? Yes, replace the original controller name 'Home' withe custom controller name 'Home_IN' so changing the requested URL to be 'Home_IN/Details/2'.

Does this make sense?

My problem here is knowing exactly where in the request cycle I need to do this?

I am assuming I need to create my own custom controller factory?

C# - Using Grasp Controller With MVC Controller - How To Make An Object Always Visible For A Controller

Dec 28, 2010

UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development, that follows the UP(Unified Process). It uses a Grasp Controller pattern to interact with domain classes by some methods like NewSale(), AddNewItemToSale() and CloseSale. In windows form, I can instantiate a object of this class in the UI and then use its methods to perform the actions. This works well in Client apps, but when I use asp.net mvc, I cannot find a way to instantiate an object (one for each user) that was always visible for a Controller (MVC). I cannot insert as an attribute inside Controller because it always create a new one.

MVC :: Session Vs TempData / How To Persist Values From Controller To Controller

May 30, 2010

I have a filter on my MVC web site. I display some records in a few different controller actions but when moving from one action to another I want to apply those filter values.

How can I persist values from controller to controller?

Should I use Session? TempData?

I am using Structure Map for IOC.

Maybe I could have a class that contains a Property for each Session Value that I use in my application and inject it on the controllers that need session?
