ASP.NET MVC 2 - POST Form Model From PartialView?

Mar 1, 2010

I have a single model type to wrap up various models I want to use in my view:

public class QuestionViewData {
public Question Question { get; set; }
public IList<Answer> Answers { get; set; }

Now, in my question view I pull the data from the Question object - that's fine. Secondly I iterate through all Answer objects and pass them to a partial view:

<% foreach(Answer item in Model.Answers) { %>
<% Html.RenderPartial("ShowAnswer", item); %>
<% } %>

For each answer (in the partial view) I have some action buttons (like ratings). I'm using separate form POST's with hidden fields for every button. The problem is that I can't post the whole QuestionViewData model to my action method cause I only have the Answer object as model in the partial view. However, I need to return the complete question view from that action that takes QuestionViewData as model.

C# - MVC - Using Model Property As Form - Post To Action?

Jan 12, 2011

public class BandProfileModel
public BandModel Band { get; set; }
public IEnumerable<Relationship> Requests { get; set; }
and the following form:
<% using (Html.BeginForm()) { %>
<%: Html.EditorFor(m => m.Band) %>
<input type="submit" value="Save Band" />
<% } %>
which posts to the following action:
public ActionResult EditPost(BandProfileModel m, string band)
// stuff is done here, but m is null?
return View(m);

Basically, I only have one property on my model that is used in the form. The other property in BandProfleModel is just used in the UI for other data. I'm trying to update just the Band property, but for each post, the argument "m" is always null (specifically, the .Band property is null). It's posting just fine to the action, so it isn't a problem with my route. Just the data is null.

The ID and name attributes of the fields are BAND_whatever and Band.whatever (whatever being a property of Band), so it seems like it would work. What am I doing wrong? How can I use just one property as part of a form, post back, and have values populated via the model binder for my BandProfileModel property in the action?

Binding View Model From A Form Post With Inner Complex Types?

Apr 15, 2010


What I want to achieve is the ID of the property: item.Item.ID to be bound to the ID from the (route)URL. However I can't get it to work. I tried using [Bind()] attribute.

I fixed it now using a hidden field in the form like so:

<%= Html.HiddenFor(model => model.Item.ID)%>

However this feels a bit icky. I'd like to know if there is a better cleaner way of doing this?

MVC :: PartialView Outside Of Form - ViewData

Mar 16, 2011

I have a little MVC 3 challenge that I am trying to overcome.Here is my scenario:I have a controller called PersonController.cs with 5 methods:Add Add (post) Edit Edit (post) PopulateName(string EmailAddress) - POST

I have a viewdata class called PersonViewData.cs with 3 pieces of data:

Email FirstName LastName

I have 2 PageViews (Edit.aspx and Add.aspx)I have 1 PartialView (Details.ascx) - with 3 textboxes (Name, Email, Phone)I want to reuse this partial view in both the Edit.aspx and Add.aspx Views.

The user should NOT enter the First Name/Last Name - rather, once the user has entered the email address (OnChange of Email textbox), the First Name/ Last Name of person should be populated. This is done using the PopulateName(string EmailAddress) controller method. Meaning, I have an AJAX Form inside the partial view

Then once all 3 fields are populated. The user should be able to submit either the Add or Edit HtmlForm.

Code of Edit.aspx:

Code of Add.aspx:

The main issue is as follows:I have an AJAX Form inside the partial view. Since now we have a PageView Form and nested PartialView AjaxForm - Form within a Form - the Browser has a hard time with this concept. In fact, when a person enters an email address, the frmEdit/frmAdd gets submitted.

Http Form Post As Https Form Post?

Is there a way to force a non-secure form post to be secure? I understand there are ways to automatically resolve an http URL as an https URL but with form posts, is this type of redirection too late? Will the posted data have already gone through the wire as plain text?

MVC :: Post Action Model Parameter

Jan 26, 2011

i wonder something about mvc post method. for example I created a view "strongly typed" from a model (MyModel).

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<Demo1.Models.MyModel>" %>
for Create actionsthere is two way.
first one takes MyModel as parameter
public ActionResult cart(MyModel md, int someID)
//some code
return View(MyModel);
second one does not take parameter as model.
public ActionResult cart(int someID)
//some code
return View(Mymodel);

for first one way, after form post the form values does not delete, I mean form does not cleared,after second one form is be cleared. why this diffirence?

C# - POST Json Without Model And Ajax?

C# - Get List<Model> Object In HTTP POST?

Dec 29, 2010

I have two model classes:

public class UserModel
public Guid Id { get; set; }
public string EmailAddress { get; set; }
public string LoginName { get; set; }
public string Password { get; set; }
public class GroupModel
public Guid Id { get; set; }
public string Name { get; set; }
public List<UserModel> Users { get; set; }

I created a View (Create.Aspx) by inheriting GroupModel class.

<%@ Page Language="C#" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<MyApp.Models.GroupModel>" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
<% using (Html.BeginForm()) {%>
<%: Html.ValidationSummary(true) %>
<div class="editor-label">
<%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.Id) %>
<div class="editor-field">
<%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Id) %>
<%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Id) %>
<div class="editor-label">
<%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.Name) %>
<div class="editor-field">
<%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Name) %>
<%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Name) %>
<input type="submit" value="Create" />
<% } %>
<%: Html.ActionLink("Back to List", "Index") %>

It is generating only two fields (Id, Name) in my aspx view. Also I am able to get the form data in the Model class object in ё[HttpPost]ё request which contains the data for ID and NAME field in controller.

public ActionResult Create(GroupModel groupModel)
// TODO: Add insert logic here
return RedirectToAction("Index");
return View();

How can I get the data in List<UserModel> object? I am thinking to Put a List control with checkboxes containing Users. Then catch them using FormCollection object in controller.

Read A Complex View Model On POST?

Jun 5, 2010

I have an user view model that has the following properties:

public User user;
public List<Language> Languages;

I send the above model to the view and use html helpers to build the form, so I end up with something like:

<form action="/Users/Edit/5" method="post"><input id="user_UserId" name="user.UserId" type="hidden" value="5" />
First Name
Last Name

Now, I try to read the POST in something that initially was something like :

[AcceptVerbs( HttpVerbs.Post )]

public ActionResult Edit( int UserId, FormCollection form ) {

and cannot get the user.UserId variable, user.FirstName variable etc.

what needs to be done to be able to read this kind of POST request. I'm kind of reluctant to modifying my ViewModel as it is very simple and easy to maintain as it is.

How To Bind Post Data With A Model That Contains Multiple Models

Nov 4, 2010

I have a parent View that uses a few partial views. Each partial view has its own custom model. The parent View is a model containing each of the partial view's model. In other words this parent View model is NOT flat.

How do i get POST data to bind with the parent's model object? Do i have to write a custom model binder?

Update I'm not binding to a collection of objects of the same type (ie: a collection of uploaded files). I'm binding to object that contains multiple of objects. For example:

MVC :: Retain Partial Data In Model Over The Post Backs?

Oct 12, 2010

I have recently started learning ASP.NET with MVC 2 Framework, I am facing difficulties in the following scenarios.In my MVC application I want to retain partial information in Model over post backs.Following is my scenario,

1. I initiate "Edit" of main record by clicking date hyperlink from left navigation.

2. Amend some data.

3. Save the record.

4. "Edit" sub record of the saved record by clicking another hyperlink from bottom left navigation panel.

The page is divided in to 6 tabs, the first 5 tabs shows the data for the main record and the 6th tab shows data of sub record. Wehn we "Edit@ sub record the previous 5 tabs doesn't have any changes noted, that means there is no harm in keeping their details intact in the main model. So is there a way to access model in the controller on hyper link click action so that I can only load the data for the clicked sub record (I am asking this, because the hyperlink click uses HTTP GET method so no model parameter passed in action method). If no, then how do I retain partial values in the Model over post backs?

Note that each tab data have been kept in individual models, and a main model has a collection member to hold all these individual models together.I thought as the model is binded with the view, it is too binded with controller. But it is allowing easily to access model in variable "Model" for the view but not for the controller.

MVC2 Model Binding Does Not POST Back Hidden Values?

Jul 25, 2010

I have a /Register [GET] Action in the controller that pre-poluates a view-model with a string and an integer and returns: return View(myModel);I can see the string being populated in the textarea and the id being populated in a hidden input. Yet when the form gets POSTed, the string value is null and the int value is 0. I verified that both values are posted to the server but the model received in the POST action is missing those values.

MVC :: Saving A Complex Child Object After Post (LINQ To SQL Model Binding With MVC)

Jan 6, 2011

I am using ASP.Net MVC2 and LINQ to SQL. I am using DataAnnotations and model binding in conjunction with a Form/View and its working beautifully well. Loving that.. My view is an "Add new Employee" form that's adding a new "Employee" complex object. Every Employee also has a child complex object called an "Address".
I am using the bound Html helpers in the view, such as Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.NewEmployee.FirstName) for example. Working beautifully well, validating beautifully well both client and server and coming into the controller fully populated and ready to be saved! Exciting.. ModelState.IsValid returns true and I go to save the new Employee.

The Employee is created fine but the system also creates a blank/new Address record in my Addresses table even when the Address fields are blank! How can I prevent any Address from being created, in situations where I ONLY want to create a new Employee with no Address. An example is when the user supplies an existing Address, then I wish to simply set the new Employee's AddressID to that of an existing physical address (I hope that makes sense). But it could apply to any situation where you need to create a new complex object, but you don't wish for LINQ to create any of its child complex objects. I have tried setting NewEmployee.Address = null after it is received in the controller, but even after that, a blank/new Address is still created. Even if I try NewEmployee.Address = SomeExistingAddress, it does correctly link the Employee to the existing Address, but it STILL goes off and creates another redundant new/blank address record! Which is really weird..

MVC + LINQ To SQL Model Binding - Saving A Complex Child Object After Post

Jan 5, 2011

I have a "Create New Employee" ASP.Net MVC form. My complex object is an Employee and an Employee has an Address, which is another Complex object. On my View/Form I collect all required values for both the Employee and the Address. I'm using the bound HTML helpers such as: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.EmployeeAddress.StreetName)


Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.NewEmployee.FirstName)

This is all working beautifully well. Model binding is working like a dream, both server side and client side validation using DataAnnotations is working beautifully well and I am nicely receiving my populated complex objects as expected in the Controller.. Now I'm trying to save.. The Employee should always be newly created, because its an "Add New Employee" form. But sometimes the Address is an existing Address and I don't want to insert another one. Rather, I just want to link the Employee to the existing AddressID of the one that already exists in the database.

So I wrote a nifty GetExistingOrCreateNewAddress(Address PostedAddress) method which works great so I end up with the correct Address to use and link to the about to be saved Employee object. This is all happening in the same DataContext, so no problems there..

BUT even when I link the about to be saved Employee object to an existing Address, on save a new/empty Address row is created in my Addresses table. Even though the newly created Employee does link correctly to the existing Address I told it to! Why is it so??? And how can I save the new Employee without LINQ automatically creating a blank Address for me. Because I'm explicitly specifying an existing Address it should be linked to instead!

public ActionResult CreateEmployee(EmployeeDetailsViewModel NewEmployeeDetails)
if (ModelState.IsValid)
EmployeeRepository ER = new EmployeeeRepository();
// Fetch or Create the appropriate Address object for what has been entered
Address ActualAddress = ER.GetExistingOrCreateNewAddress(NewEmployeeDetails.EnteredAddress);
// Link this Address to the "about to be saved" Employee
NewEmployeeDetails.Employee.Address = ActualAddress;
// Lock it in..

C# - Render A Multiple-model CREATE Form On The Fly

Jul 9, 2010

It's a multi-model view, and I'm achieving this through an IList<Book>. Each Book has a Title and an Author

So for example if I wanted to make 3 Books:


However, I want to be able to generate such a form for any number of Books. I've done this before in Ruby on Rails through JavaScript and rendering partials, but I don't think I can render a partial in this case because the form changes (the index of the book has to increment for it to work)

EDIT: I'm looking for a way to do this in the Create view in particular. So in this case I don't have a list of books, but I'm building it.

A user should be able to click on a link that says "Add another item" and a form for another book should be appended to the bottom.
