MVC :: Allow Html Input In A Textarea?

Feb 19, 2011

I'm using MVC, and i'm building my own basic blogging engine. I need to be able to allow HTML input to be submitted to the server so it can be added to a database. I only want HTML input allowed in that textarea alone, but I still want my other validation like StringLength etc. How could I do this?

MVC :: Html.TextArea - Extra Line Break In The TextArea, Just Above The Original Text?

Jul 15, 2010

I'm working with an MVC1.0 web app and I've found a bit of an odd anomaly.

I have a search box on the first page (normal text box) and the input from this is passed through to the ViewData and on to the second page.

On the second page, I render a TextArea with this search input text from the ViewData.



The problem is, there is an extra line break in the TextArea, just above the original text.

Stranger still is that if I now submit this page and the view is reloaded (after validation fails) - the original string of text has been trimmed and has no line breaks, but the TextArea now has 2 line breaks above the original text.

This can be repeated - every time the page reloads it has another line break.

It's driving me insane - does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

FYI, you can check it out yourself - on your mobile phone, browse to [URL], punch something in the search box and hit search. You'll notice one line break added the first time the page loads. Then just hit "Find Best Offer" without entering a budget or selecting a category, and you'll see what I mean about the additional line breaks.

Javascript - Displaying <textarea> Value As HTML?

Dec 28, 2010

I have a form with several textarea elements. User enters data and submits the form. On the next page it shows submitted text as static text - in p tags. Obviously New Line and multiple paces get ignored and everything just shows in one line. I can do some preprocessing like replacing New line characters with "br/" and spaces with . but I was wondering if there is a standard solution to that either on server side (C#) or client side (javascript)

Convert Textarea Text Into Valid HTML?

Mar 4, 2010

there are a few paragraphs separated by line feeds "

" in a textarea, say

Paragraph1 "
Paragraph2 "
Paragraph3 "

what i want to achieve is to process each paragraph into tag. How do you do that? (Need a server side solution) so it looks like

<p> Paragraph 1 </p>
<p> Paragraph 2 </p>
<p> Paragraph 3 </p>

On top of the complexity, if you have a blockquote there

Paragraph1 "
<blockquote> "
</blockquote> "
Paragraph2 "
Paragraph3 "

should come out to look like

<p> Paragraph 1 </p>
<p> Paragraph 2 </p>
<p> Paragraph 3 </p>

MVC :: Form Post Not Working With HTML Inside A Textarea?

Apr 15, 2010

For some reason I can't get an ajax post action to work if the text inside an textarea contains HTML. In the text area I am entering <h1>test</h1>, when I do that, I can click on the Save button all day if I want, nothing happens. Not sure whats causing this, but it also appears to do it if I don't use the ajax form and just a standard html form.

Here is the code for the controller:


Here is the code for AjaxForm:


And here is how I am putting the control on the form:

Get The Value Of An Input Of Html.textbox In MVC 2

Jul 12, 2010

I currently have a TextBox using: <%: Html.TextBox("TextBox1") %> How do I get the value of what is typed into the TextBox as a string so that I can use that string variable throughout my application? The view has he following with the inherits on top of page to model. This page is named "InputNumbersSection":

<%: Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.Number) %>
and the action:
<%: Html.ActionLink("Get Number!", "DisplayNumbersSection") %>
The Model has this:
public class NumberModels
public string Number { get; set; }
The controller has the following:
public ActionResult DisplayNumbersSection(NumberModels model)
if (ModelState.IsValid)
string TextBoxValue = model.Number;
ViewData["Number"] = TextBoxValue;
return View();

The ViewData I use in another page to return the number from the textbox typed in the view. When I type somthing into the textbox, I do not see the property getting hit or executed. The "Number" property returns NULL all the time. It almost seems as if it is not picking up what I type into the TextBox

Html - Regular Input In .NET?

Jun 7, 2010

Here's an example of a regular standard HTML input for my radiobuttonlist:

<label><input type="radio" name="rbRSelectionGroup" checked value="0" />None</label>
<asp:Repeater ID="rptRsOptions" runat="server">

I removed some stuff for this thread, one being I put an r for some name that I do not want to expose here so just an fyi.Now, I would assume that this would or should happen:

Page loads the first time, the None radio button is checked / defaulted
I go and select a different radiobutton in this radiobutton list
I do an F5 refresh in my browser
The None radio button is pre-selected again after it has come back from the refresh

but #4 is not happening. It's retaining the radiobutton that I selected in #2 and I don't know why. I mean in regular HTML it's stateless. So what could be holding this value? I want this to act like a normal input button.I know the question of "why not use an ASP.NET control" will come up. Well there are 2 reasons:

The stupid radiobuttonlist bug that everyone knows about I just want to brush up more on standard input tags.We are not moving to MVC so this is as close as I'll get and it's ok, because the rest of the team is on par with having mixed ASP.NET controls with standard HTML controls in our pages I'm surprised that it's retaining the change in selection after postback.

HTML Encode All Input In MVC 2 Site By Default?

Mar 2, 2011

I'd like to html encode all user input on the ASP.NET MVC 2 site but default. Can this be done anywhere on model binder level?

If I disable input validation for action -- I will need to html-encode every other value. If I keep ASP.NET request validation on -- it will throw erros "A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client"

P.S. I do use encoding when outputting data (<%: %> syntax), but I'd like to encode everything on posting it too.
