MVC :: Edit The Content Of A View From An Action Filter?

Jan 6, 2011

Is it possible to edit the content of a view from a action filter.

What I am working on is a Resourcemanager that I can use to manage

my style sheets, js and other resources. I want to be able to put

lines in the the view any where like Html.ResourceManager.AddScriptFile("MyScript")

or Html.ResourceManager.AddCSSFile("MyCSS")

and at the end of the view call Html.Render(); this would then place the content of my resources at this point. My problem is that I want to put the CSS stuff at the top of the view, but them problem is that it is renderend at the end of the view, so I tought that I could use a ActionFilter to move it to the top of the view.

1) What would be the best way to do this task ?

2) Is there any resources that describe the way that the MVC framework works in more detail ?

C# - Run Both Authorize Filter And Action Filter On Unauthenticated MVC Request

Mar 17, 2010

I have decorated my base controller with a couple of action filters. They work fine.

One of those filters sets up the request - does things like set the culture based on the domain, etc.

I also have a handful of actions that require authorization using the Authorize attribute.

My problem is that when an user attempts to request a page they are not authorized to access, the authorization filter kicks in and redirects them to a page telling them that they cannot vie the page.

The issue is that the action filters never run so the culture and other request data is never set. This effectively causes language to be wrong in the view and other data to be missing.

I know that authorization filters run first but my question is this: How can I design this such that I can ensure that certain methods are always run before the view is returned, regardless of the authorization.

MVC :: Edit Action (GET And POST) For An Entity That Multiple Pages Link Into (GET EDIT)?

Jan 5, 2010

Consider the following scenario.You have a Edit action (GET and POST) for an entity that multiple pages link into (GET EDIT). What is the best way of getting back to the page that linked to the edit action? Adding a returnTo url in the query?

Example, from MyCart/3 we have a edit product link
/Product/Edit/5?returnTo=MyCart/3 (but url encoded)
And from Producer/45 we have this link

Is there a better way to do this?

MVC :: Add A Default Value To Action Filter?

Dec 10, 2010

I just learned about actionfilters yesterday and thought it would be great if i could put my meta data into a action filter and change the page title, page description etc from 1 location based on a value from the controller.

I've getting so far, but cannot seem to work out how to add the default value to the controller and pass that value to my actionfilter.

MVC :: Action Filter Attribute Breaking Change?

Jan 20, 2011

I have an app I am transitioning to MVC3 to see what the upgrade path is essentially. I've hit a snag. I believe I've run into a change that may be due to the changes for Dependency Injection in action filter attributes, but I have been unable to track down the cause, and the "correct" solution.This project uses StructureMap and NHibernate. The NHibernate session is started at the beginning of each request, and ends at the end of each request, thanks to a small module. This is just to give an idea of the stack involved...o I have a few custom Authorize attributes (Inheriting from AuthorizeAttribute) that perform some more complicated authorization logic for specific actions that they decorate. Part of their functionality involves using two repositories which they must either (a) have injected, or (b) get from the StructureMap ObjectFactory themselves. In MVC2 I was using option b, so that the CONSTRUCTOR of the attribute looked like this:


This worked fine, as in MVC2 the constructor was called each time the attribute was evaluated. This BREAKS in MVC3, where it would appear that this is no longer the case. Due to this apparent change, the FIRST time this attribute is evaluated, it runs fine, but each subsequent time, any calls in the repositories fails because it claims the NHibernate Session object hasn't been started! The reason being, as far as I can tell, that the CustomAuthorizeAttribute is created once, and then held in whatever state it exists in at that point for the lifetime of the application... Which means that the dependencies inside of it (Which SHOULD go out of scope at the end of each request, and be reinstantiated / fetched at the beginning of subsequent requests), are instead persisting with it becoming stale after the first evaluation.After banging my head against the desk for a few hours, I realized that simply moving these calls to the ObjectFactory into the AutorizeCore method made everything work again.Now, all of this was of course, a hack, because there wasn't a good easy to do real dependency injection into attributes in MVC2. I hear that is changed in MVC3, and I am wondering if this behavior is in response this change, and if so, what do I need to do to make this work?

var controllerType = filterContext.Controller.GetType();

But if there're two action method with the same name, the AmbiguousMatchException will occur there. Without the ActionMethod property, how can I get the current action method now?

MVC :: Modify Parameter Of Complex Type In Action Filter?

I thought this would be easy and maybe it is but it's eluding me.

In an action filter (MVC 2) I want to add/edit one of the parameters for the type I'm passing to my action method.

I have an action method:


Bar is a simple class for viewData:


In my BarFilter action filter OnActionExecuting method I want to add a value for paramA which is not set by the view so that Bar will be fully populated in my Foo action method. I've tried various methods of adding values to ViewData, ModelState, Model etc. but I always get a null returned in Foo.

MVC :: Passing Of Id To Edit Action

Mar 30, 2010

I am rather new to ASP.NET MVC and am trying to develop good practices and have studied a few tutorials and videos. There seems to be some differences in how people define the signature of a typical edit action method - sometimes the id (primary key) is listed and sometimes not. It seems like letting the framework do the model binding is a GOOD THING, so I will probably have the model (or view model) as a parameter:

ActionResult Edit(int id,
CompanyViewModel company);
ActionResult Edit(CompanyViewModel company);

But, should the id be a parameter too? I assume it is common-place to have the id in a hidden form field as well so the id (primary key) is then already bound in the model (or view model) - if so, what is the id parameter good for? Or should it be the other way around - keep the id parameter and do not bother using a hidden field for it? What are the pros and cons and what is the best practice?

On Edit Grid View Multiple Row Edit Validation?

Jan 29, 2010

I am using a telerik radgrid so there are around 5 columns each column edittemplate contains a control along with a required field validator and also a property called AllowMultiRowEdit is set to true so i am able to multiple rows in edit mode.

If any of the values are cleared the for multiple rows I want only those to be validated on update of that particular row.

So i implemented the Grids item data bound event find each and every validator along with the update button and set a unique validation group.

The above implementation most times but fails at some time. Is there any other way of going about this ?
