MVC :: EF - Nullreferenceexception In View. Handle Non Existing Object References In View Model

Mar 15, 2011

I have an entity object as model input in my view. Not sure if it's the best approach, but I use the object references to get values from a related object.Let's say I've got a car entity and a manufacturer entity.Here's how it would look in my view


I've get a nullreferenceexception where the car entitity does not have a reference towards manufacturer. I'd like to output a " " if no manufacturer exists.

MVC :: Compound View Model Object Causing Remote Validation Failure?

Feb 12, 2011

I have used a pattern of compound view models for a few of the forms in this project. It works very well.

In this case I have a VendorAddress view model. I use Address(es) in a few places in this project so I made and Address view model object that I can re-use. Then I desided I want to do a very thorough checking of the state codes and zips so, I desided I would try to use remote validation and check the state and zip code aganst a stored set of tables in the database.

The problem is I am not getting values back to the remote action methods for the fields I'm asking for (in this case State and PostalCode). I believe this is because of the name mangleing that the MVC framework does for compound or sub types for id(s) for the inputs in this case it is making names like 'Address_Line1' and 'Address_State' and 'Address_PostalCode'.

Ultimately the question I have is, is there a way of turning off the pre-pended 'Address_' from the base view model object in a way that MVC framework can put it bak into the object after ther post of the form?


Then in the form after rendering it looks like this:


I get the remote call but there is nothing in the parameters "State" and "PostalCode", so the unobtrusive routines are firing but I think it does not know where to look for the data even though I have type something in the mensioned fields. As you can see in the rendered code the id="Address_State" and the data-val-remote-additionalfields="*.State,*.PostalCode"

MVC :: Partial View Not Sending View Model To ActionResult Method?

Dec 29, 2010

've created a Search partial view and it works, except for my view model. What i mean is, the partial view sends a string to my ActionResult Method, but only a string, that is not related to the view model that the partial view is built in. If i tell my ActionResult method to receive the view model in which the partial view is built in, it always tells me that i have null values. Here's my code This is my partial view:


Now here is my Model in my MoviesSearch view model:

MVC2 View Model For Multiple View Forms And Data

Aug 26, 2010

one thing that has been puzzling me since learning MVC2 is the following case scenario: I have a view which contains two latest news lists, a login form and a signup form. Every example I found on Views and View Models so far has a one-to-one example such as a simple login form etc. But how do I create a model that provides the properties and validation for a login and signup form and manages the data for the news lists. can I pass multiple models in the strongly typed view? When I created one model the form validation would fail as it expects all fields - login and signup to be filled. I am missing some advanced examples or information.

MVC :: View And Partial View Sharing The Same ViewData.Model?

May 3, 2010

making my first steps with mvc and I actually create a (very) small website.I have 1 controller : TasksController1 view : Tasks/Index.aspx1 Partial View : Tasks/AvailableSorting.ascx In my controller I have 2 methods :


In my Tasks/Index.aspx, I add my partial view (<% Html.RenderPartial("AvaliableSorting"); %>)

That sounds simple. But, It just doesn't work : the Index return a list of Task and the parial view (should) return a list of string.The index.aspx works perfectly, but the partial view doesn't get the right model ! he gets the model of the Index page (list of Task).

C# - How To Pass Model From A View To A Partial View

May 5, 2010

I have a view that is not strongly typed. However I have in this view a partial view that is strongly typed.How do I do I pass the model to this strongly typed view?I tried something like

public ActionResult Test()
MyData = new Data();
MyData.One = 1;
return View("Test",MyData)

In my TestView

<% Html.RenderPartial("PartialView",Model); %>

This give me a stackoverflow exception. So I am not sure how to pass it on. Of course I don't want to make the test view strongly typed if possible as what happens if I had like 10 strongly typed partial views in that view I would need like some sort of wrapper.

Should Data Annotations Be On The Model Or The View Model

Dec 15, 2010

I've been used to decorating data model classes with data annotation attributes, but the purist in me baulks slightly at including purely presentational attributes such as display format here. I am, however, quite happy to keep validation centric attributes here. One good reason I have to continue keeping all annotations etc. in the data model is that my view model aggregates data model classes, e.g.

my ViewModelBase.DetailItem<TEntity> property in the view model is just a reference to an entity class in my data model. If I wanted to move presentational annotations to the view model, I would have to quite radically revise my design to one where I duplicate data model properties in my view model and use an object mapping tool to populate view model objects based on data model objects.

MVC :: View Model To Convert To Domain Model?

May 4, 2010

Say I got a domain model as follows: (and my repository expect an instance of this object)


And a view model (which my views are based on)


At the moment I got it like this and have my controller action manually create a new Person object from the PersonModel object before passing it on to the repository, which does not feel right.

So I tried to have PersonModel inherit from Person and pass that to the repository (also tried casting the PersonModel to a Person object first), but that don't work out.

What's the right way to have PersonModel automatically cast to Person? I want to keep this logic as my current structure allow me to keep things really loosely coupled, with the repository layer not having a clue how it's being used.

MVC :: Parsing The Model In The View?

Dec 28, 2010

I have a ViewModel class: "MainPage" which contains 2 properties: Title, Id.I have a controller which prepares a list of MainPage and sends it to the view:

public ActionResult SideMenu()
MainPageDal dal = new MainPageDal();
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt = dal.GetArticlesList();
List<MainPage> mainPageList = new List<MainPage>();
MainPage mainPage;
foreach (DataRow row in dt.Rows)
mainPage = new MainPage(Convert.ToInt16(row["Id"]), row["Title"].ToString());
return View(mainPageList);

In my view I do:
<% foreach (var mainPage in Model) { %>

Now I added "List<String> myList=new..." into my MainPage class and tried to do foreach like this:

Why I can't do: <% foreach (var str in Model.myList) { %>

myList is a list of string inside MainPage.The error I get is:

c:devMvcTestMvcTestViewsHomeSideMenu.aspx(12): error CS1061: 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<MvcTest.ViewModels.MainPage>' does not contain a definition for 'myList' and no extension method 'myList' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<MvcTest.ViewModels.MainPage>'

MVC :: Passing A Model To A View?

Nov 10, 2010

In my controller I UpdateModel(model). That works. I'm getting the model from the view.I save the fields of the model to a business entity and save the entity through a business layer to my database. The business layer returns a unique record id which I store in my model. Then I pass the model to the View.

return View(model);

After the View loads the Model in the View has not been updated. The unique record id has not been changed. I have been at this for four hours and I'm not getting anywhere. I have been trying to convert a windows forms project to MVC2 for six weeks and it just gets more and more frustrating. None of the tutorials on the MS site or the Microsoft book I have answer any of my questions.
