MVC3 Razor - Create a instance of a View

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

In my controller method, I'm trying to create an instance of a View (cshtml file) before I wrap it around an ActionResult and return it.

Since there is no "class" for Razor Views to speak off, how does one go about creating an instance of a Razor View?

Create view that amins to tables of another database on the same sql server instance

Hi to everybody, I found a situation ever met before. I develop on Dynamics NAV 5.01 and I have developed a method to be able to see some particular tables of an external database. In substance it deals with a property of tables of Dynamics NAV. When I create a table in NAV, I can create it in 3 different ways: table common to all the companies table  for company or table linked to a view.    This last case is mine, on the same db of NAV I have created a view with some fields, I have created in NAV a table linked with equal fields and types. Until here all normal.    The view, however, aims to another database that doesn't center anything with NAV but that it is on the same intance of SQL server.    The consumer that accesses NAV is a consumer type database SQL Server and has the permitted db_public and db_datareader on both the database. Then he can read the views on the db of nav both on the db of the other database.    When it tries to enter from the console of sql server, with the consumer database, all it works, if I do it by NAV, it show me an error "The server principal "username" is not able to access the database "some_database_name" under the current security context. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 916) "    If I add on the database NAV to the consumer, the role db_owner,

MVC3 beta Razor View Base class/inheritance issues


There seem to be a few issues in the way Razor views are designed and the code generated

1. Descendants of WebViewPage are forced to override Execute() (since it is abstract) but that method is never called. Why?

2. The virtual method ConfigurePage is never called in descendants that override this method.

3. CreatePageFromVirtualPath is no longer virtual. This was the one method that gave us access to the Layout Page (Master Page) instance. Now we no longer have this access. Why was this done?

How can one get access to the instance of a Layout page?

Razor View Engine and Add Namespace in Web.Config Problem



I am working on a MVC project with Razor view engine and I have the following:


This only works if I have on the same view the following:

  @using SquishIt.Framework;

However, on my Web.Config I have the following:


      <!-- Namespaces -->
        <add namespace="System"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Routing"/>
        <add namespace="Microsoft.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="SquishIt.Framework"/>


So if "SquishIt.Framework" namespace is added on Web.Config why do I need to have the @using on the view?

ASP.NET MVC3 Areas and Razor views produce errors?


The view at '~/Areas/SomeArea/Views/List/Index.cshtml' must derive from ViewPage, ViewPage, ViewUserControl, or ViewUserControl.

The project structure is pretty much default. There is one area called SomeArea. It has a single controller called List. It does nothing except:

public ActionResult Index()
    return View("~/Areas/SomeArea/Views/List/Index.cshtml");

The view looks like:

@inherits System.Web.Mvc.WebViewPage<dynamic>
    View.Title = "Index";
    LayoutPage = "~/Views/Shared/_Layout.cshtml";


I have tried emptying the entire file part by part and nothing seems to help. If I create a controller and view outside the area it works just fine. If I create an aspx view it works fine as well. Is it possible the default razor view engine doesn't support areas at this time?

The areas are registered too.

public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)
        "Default", // Route name
        "{controller}/{action}/{id}", // URL with parameters

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

Create a new list View Style

Hi, In SharePoint 2010 for XSLT List View Web Part you can assign different view styles using SharePoint Designer. For example "Basic Table", "Boxed" or "Shaded" etc. These styles just don't fit my needs. So my question is how can I create my own View Style which I can apply to any list? I came across "Customize XSLT > Customize Entire View" option under Design tab in SharePoint Designer which allows me to change the XSL stylesheet and control the rendering for a list. But how can I create my own list "View Style" which I would like to reuse with other lists too? Thanks, Hitesh

Does the Razor View Engine Support Generic Methods?

Trying out the Razor view engine and for some reason my generic helper methods are breaking. For example: public static class UrlHelperExtensions { public static string NonGenericHelper(this UrlHelper helper, Type controller) { return controller.Name; } public static string GenericHelper<TController>(this UrlHelper helper) { return typeof(TController).Name; } } Works as expected: @Url.NonGenericHelper(typeof(ProjectEuler.UI.Models.Home)) Breaks with the following exception: @Url.GenericHelper<ProjectEuler.UI.Models.Home>() "CS1502: The best overloaded method match for 'Microsoft.WebPages.WebPageUltimateBase.Write(Microsoft.WebPages.Helpers.HelperResult)' has some invalid arguments" The only workaround I could find is treating it as a "multi-token statement": @(Url.GenericHelper<ProjectEuler.UI.Models.Home>()) Not sure if this is the intended behavior or just a bug but it would be nice to be able to call a generic method as you would a non generic one.
