problem when passing data from view back to controller?


I have following situation - I am pasing user info object from Controller to View. It contains GUID UserID,  which i dont want to be seen on page.

So I  removed every   Html.LabelFor(model => model.UserID), Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.UserID) etc... from generated View source.

And because of this when Html.BeginForm() returns that object back to Controller  all values is there but UserID is lost??

If I leave Html.LabelFor(model => model.UserID), Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.UserID) etc.. in View everything is fine.

But I dont want to show UserID?

Where is the problem here?

                <%= Html.LabelFor(model => model.C__User_Id) %>

Is it bad MVC practice to return a view of a different controller?

I came upon this when had problem trying to return a view of a different controller.  In controller1, I have view view1.In Action1 of controller2, I wanted to do something like:public ViewResult Action1(){     return View("/Controller1/View1");}but, found out, I couldn't do it.  So I searched and found this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/879852/asp-net-mvc-display-a-view-from-another-controllerOne guy there responded and said that, for my case, it is possible to do things like below:return View("~/Views/Controller1/View1.aspx");But, please let me know if this is considered an acceptable MVC practice.  Is it OK, good, perfect to do so in the asp.net MVC realm?  Thanks, please share your two cents.

Passing return value from a Web Service to a label in a Form View

I am using JavaScript to call a web service. The JS is correctly receiving and passing the web service information. At the moment, the web service returns a country name as a string to a JavaScript alert pop up box as follows:ret = CountryRegionsWebService.GetTranslatedCountryShortName(ddl1_value, ddl2_value, OnComplete, OnTimeOut, OnError);function OnComplete(args) { alert(args); } I want to change this so that web service returns the country name to a label inside an insert item template of a form view. Is there a way to pass in the label variable to the OnComplete function signature and still account for the variable args?, such as: Server Side Declaration of JavaScript ddl2.Attributes.Add("onChange", "JavaScript:OnComplete('" + lab5.ClientID + "', '" + "args" + "');"); Client Side JavaScript function OnComplete(lab5_id, args) { var lab5 = document.getElementById(lab5_id); lab5.innerHTML = args; }

Passing data to a Controller from global.asax


Hello all! I'm in a situation where I need to pass some information (state) to a base controller from which all of my controllers derive. In my global.asax, I'm calling a web service to get some state about the user. This state applies to every page in my web app, so the base controller needs to know about it. The state consists of about 4 fields. Is there a standard way to do this? 

I'm using ASP.NET MVC 2.

Thanks in advance for your time!
