Ajax and Validation on Partial Views

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a main page "Index". Index page has 2 partial views 1. "CategoryList"- list with bunch of checkboxes2. "Add Category" - 1 text field -"BlogCategoryName" with "create" buttonWhat i want to do is when someone types in a new "CategoryName" in the text field of "Add Category" partial view it would send via Ajax to AddCategory controller then it would return a new List and Update "CategoryList" on the index page.Questions:How would i achieve this? so that validation works (ie when CategoryName is blank it would return that partial view with validation) however when successfully validated it would return a new list and update the "CategoryList" partial view.What's the best approeach?would I use JSON or AJAX?thanks

How can I use unobtrusive validation with partial views


Hello Experts,

Tools: MVC3, Razor, unobtrusive validation

In my project I'm using a partial view at the top of the page to collect information. I'd like to use this view in other pages because its functionality is common.

The partial view, CreateRequestorInformation, looks like this:

@model NSForms.Models.RequestorInformationVM

    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery-1.4.4.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery.validate.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery.validate.unobtrusive.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>

    @{ Html.EnableClientValidation(); }

    @using (Html.BeginForm("Create", "RequestorInformation"))
            <div id="divRequestorInformation">
                <-- content that needs to be validated -->

Cutting Edge: Master-Detail Views with the ASP.NET Ajax Library


When you think of data-driven Web pages, most of the time what you really have in mind is a master-detail view of some cross-related data. Dino builds an example with ASP.NET AJAX 4 and jQuery.

Dynamic Javascript in Ajax Partial View

I have a partial view which uses Ajax.ActionLink to perform paging.  The AjaxOptions in the link identify the update target (a div on the main view) and some javascript to run OnSuccess (in the partial view).  The javascript must be in the partial view since there is some information in the partial view required to properly wire up the jQuery in the javascript.  This isn't working as expected.  The sample below is the minimum code to duplicate the behavior I am seeing: Controller: private static int count; // // GET: /Home/ public ActionResult Index() { ViewData["Test"] = count++; return View(); } [HttpPost] public ActionResult TestPartial() { ViewData["Test"] = count++; return PartialView(); } View:  <%@ Page Language="C#" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage" %> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" > <head runat="server"> <title>Index</title> <script src="../../Scripts/MicrosoftAjax.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script

Code behinds in MVC2 - How to inject auto-generated code into views via partial classes?

Background:I have written a t4 template that basically replaces the work done by StronglyTypedResourceBuilder to give design time access to string resources as properties of classes, one class per resource file.  Why?  Well I needed to add some customer code that handles string token substitution and a few other customizations.  Anyway, the template is working out really well and I may blog on it soon.In the mean time though, following a common pattern, I have one .resx file for each view, master page, controller, etc.  I would really like my t4 template to add a property to each such entity that gives quick access the custom resource class associated with it.  For controllers this is easy.  T4MVC is ensuring that they are a all declared partial.  All I need to do is create the appropriate partial class in my output that declares a readonly property that returns an instance of the appropriate generated resource class.The Problem:I would like to do the same thing, inject generated code, into my views.  Were this traditional ASP.Net, each .aspx page would have a .aspx.cs page and possibly an .aspx.designer.cs page that are all partial classes extending in the aspx page's class definition.  There is no such thing by default in MVC and for good reason.  However, I think for my purposes, if there is a way to do this, it

Global navigation and partial views


I guess this is mostly a theory question since I'm very new to MVC.  If you have a global navigation tree, Countries --> States --> Cities for example, how do you correctly implement this in MVC2?  In my example, the view model for States does not contain Countries and the tree would break as it needs the Countries list to build the tree.

It sounds like this should be easy, but it doesn't sound right to include the entire model for a single State or City view.

MVC3 Beta Razor Views - not partial classes


Why are Razor views not generated as partial classes? Making them partial classes gives us the option to have a code behind where we can do some of the stuff we're forced to do in the template itself in the code behind file.

Yes, I know the standard "go-to" thing is Html helper but I don't want to use Html helpers for these things as they are too specific to the view in question and besides, having a clutter of extension methods is just not the way to go.

I'd like to see Razor views generated as partial classes.

AJAX partial update of a partial view



I have an application which is using jQuery tabs. Each tab renders a partial view asynchronously, however some of these partial views need to also be partially updated. For example, one of them displays two tables of data, and one of the tables allows the user to filter the results, so I want to do a partial update of this one table, but I'm not sure how to accomplish this. I've been looking at Ajax.BeginForm, jQuery.post, and jQuery.load, but I'm not sure what the right approach is.

Thanks for any help. :)

AJAX Validation callout extenders firing when other buttons are pressed


I have several buttons on a page, but have assigned some validators and AJAX validator callout extenders to one button in particular. However, the validator callout extenders seem to be firing even if I press a different button. I thought this was the point of setting a TargetControlID (for the valiator callout extender) and a ControlToValidate for the validator itself! Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

<asp:TextBox ID="tbNewDuration" runat="server" />   Duration <br />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="tbNewDurationRFV" ControlToValidate="tbNewDuration" ErrorMessage="Please enter a Duration value." Display="None" runat="server" />
<cc1:ValidatorCalloutExtender ID="tbNewDurationVCE1" runat="server"  TargetControlID="tbNewDurationRFV" />
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="tbNewDurationREV" runat="server" Display="none" ControlToValidate="tbNewDuration" ErrorMessage="Please enter a number of 10 digits" ValidationExpression="^\d{10}$" />
<cc1:ValidatorCalloutExtender ID="tbNewDurationVCE2" runat="server" TargetControlID="tbNewDurationREV" />

Do Ajax Toolkit Extenders participate in server side validation?


If I use the extenders (for example mask edit) in place of some of the built in validators such as RegularExpressionValidator for exampe, will Page.Validate() still be called automatically and perform server side validation using the extenders?

Problem with Partial Views and log out after timeout



In one of my mvc application's view I have an AJAX form:

<% using (Ajax.BeginForm("HandleAddForm", "Home", new AjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId = "ContentDiv", InsertionMode = InsertionMode.Replace, OnBegin = "beginFormLoadEffect", OnSuccess = "successFormLoadEffect" }, new { id = "AddForm" }))
   { %>


<% } %>

When user lefts the computer after five minutes he is beign automatiacally logged out . And when I submit form by clicking submit button the ContentDiv is beign filled with full site with login panel.  I.e. I want to show the full site with login panel NOT in the ContentDiv. Is there any way to avoid this behaviour?
