MVC :: Html.RenderAction In MasterPage Expects Home Controller?

Jun 28, 2010

In my Site.Master View, I have the following line:


If I don't include the string identifying the Controller to use, I get an error stating that the PrimaryNavigation method couldn't be found in the Home Controller. Since the Site.Master View is in the Shared Views folder, I would have thought that the Shared Controller would have been used.

Html.ActionLink() Gives An Empty Link When Use It Inside Html.RenderAction()?

Feb 18, 2010

I have a Microsoft MVC project with an action "Foo" whose view ("Foo.aspx") contains the lines:

<%= Html.ActionLink("mylinktext1", "bar") %>
<%= Html.ActionLink<MyController>(x => x.Bar(), "mylinktext2") %>

When I hit this from a web browser or load it from an AJAX call, it properly returns:

<a href="/bar">mylinktext1</a>
<a href="/Bar">mylinktext2</a>

But when I call the action from another view like this:

<% Html.RenderAction<MyController>(x => x.Foo()); %>

Then the links are rendered without targets.

<a href="">mylinktext1</a>
<a href="">mylinktext2</a>

Why would this be happening, and how do I work around it?

MVC: When To Use Custom HTML Helper Methods Vs Html.RenderAction

Feb 10, 2010

It's a little unclear for me on when to use a custom helper method and when to use RenderAction and also when to simply use ViewData instead. Some of their functions overlap slightly.

For example, if I were to create a Category navigation bar, would I create a new helper method and place that in some partial view? I had initially though of doing this, but I read on some blog to use RenderAction instead.

Assume the list of categories is coming from some data source.

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...

MVC Rendering (RenderPartial, RenderAction) Html From Another MVC Application

Sep 9, 2010

I am working in an environment with many teams who are responsible for specific content on pages. Each team is sharing specific information (common class libraries, and master pages) that each are going deliver different types of content.Is it possible for an MVC application to do something similar to RenderPartial and pass a model to another MVC application Controller/Action to return content?

So the code for this might look like:

<% Html.RenderAction("", "Home", "Index", AdModel) %>

Maybe this is not a good idea as another thread has to spin up to server a partial view?

RenderAction Not Finding Action Method In Current Controller In Current Area?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm creating an ASP.NET MVC 2 (RTM) project that uses areas. The Index action of the Home controller of one area needs to use RenderAction to generate a sub-section of the page. The action called is also defined in the same Home controller. So the call should just be:

<% Html.RenderAction("List") %>

However, I get an exception:A public action method 'List' was not found on controller 'RareBridge.Web.Areas.Events.Controllers.HomeController'.

Note that I'm not in the "Events" area! I'm in a completely different area. If I remove the "Events" home controller, then the exception still occurs but names a different controller (still not the one I want it to call).

I've also tried providing the controller name and area to the RenderAction method, but the same exception occurs. What is going on here?

BTW: I am using Autofac as my IoC container

MVC :: RenderAction() Ignores Model Validation, RenderAction() Does Not?

Jun 4, 2010

I'm using MVC 2 and MVC Futures 2.0.50217.0.

I started with a view which repeatedly calls RenderAction(...) to include some external content implemented by another controller in my application. This is from the containing view:


The subModel objects are instances of the model for the MyController.MyAction view which has some Data Annotations validation attributes upon it. MyController.MyAction checks the model state is valid before it renders its view and chooses a view appropriately. This works fine.

However, if I use the MVC Futures' strongly typed helper to call RenderAction like so:


...then the validation is not performed. Or at least, the model state does not indicate that the model is invalid.

MVC :: HttpException In Html.RenderAction After Installing Visual Studio 2010 Pro RTM?

Apr 13, 2010

I get an HttpException (details below) after installing Visual Studio 2010 Pro RTM in an application developed using Visual Studio 2010 RC. The platform used was ASP.NET MVC2 RTW (already under VS10 RC).

I first uninstalled all RC software and even ASP.NET MVC 2, and then did a "clean" install of VS10 RTM. The ASP.NET MVC 2 version now installed on my dev machine is 2.0.50217.0.

Exception Message: Error executing child request for handler 'System.Web.Mvc.HttpHandlerUtil+ServerExecuteHttpHandlerAsyncWrapper'.

InnerException Message: <FilePath>ViewsLanguageRenderLanguageNavigation.ascx(6): error BC30451: 'Model' is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level.

The error occurs on this "Html.RenderAction":


The "LanguageController" just calls into another service function as below:


Does anybody have an idea what is causing the problem?


By the way, I might also share the actual view (partial view) that would show the languages to select from:

MVC :: Why Isn't Views / Home / Home.Master File Published When Publish Website

Aug 19, 2010

I spent the better part of today hunting down an elusive error. I was getting a message saying that it couldn't find the Index view for the Home controller, and it gave a list of locations it searched, e.g., ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx. This was really confusing as the file definitely existing and was at ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx, the first place in the list of locations it searched for the view!

What I eventually discovered was that there was a file that did not get published when I used Visual Studio's "Publish" feature (this is on the "Build" menu). That file was Views/Home/Home.master, and (as you can probably guess) is the master file used by Views/Home/Index.aspx. Once I copied that file into place manually, it started working. But I am left wondering--why??? Why does this file not get published? It's a part of my project, I can see it in the solution explorer, and it's obviously a critical file that's necessary for the MVC app to run. It has the same permissions as every other file in my project. So why wouldn't it get copied? And how can I fix it so it does get copied?
