Displaying partial view/View from another project in MVC

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi guys,

i wonder if you know which is the best way (concerning performance) to display a view from another project.

I have a cms from which i create the contents. I have my website and may in the future work for other websites. 

I have two options so far:

1) Generating the content from my cms and using it as an embedded resource in the website

2)Using http handler, i get the content from the url and response.write it on the part of the page

Please let me know if there are better options?

Thank you for your help.

partial view, 2 controllers



This is my first visit to the forums, I hope someone here can help me


I'm writing a small webapplication for creating repair tickets and adding comments, really basic

now I'm writing this in MVC2

So I have 2 controllers, 1 HomeController that does everything related to the tickets (listing tickets, creating new ones, editing) and 1 controller for the comments

the edit view for the homecontroller contains a partial view for /comment/create

so /home/edit/ticketnumber can edit the title and status of the ticket on the left side of the screen, the right side of the screen contains the partial view for adding comments

this is done like this:

Html.Renderaction("Create", "Comment");

but if I look at the generated html code when running the app, both save buttons go to /home/edit/ticketnumber

so the comment is never saved.


I hope this makes sense and that someone can help me solve this

Disappearing partial view


I have a view that uses a partital view.  The partial view is invisible when the page loads.  The user then clicks a button and I use Html.RenderPartial to make the view appear.

There is a button in the partial view in which the use will click which should make the partial view disappear.  How do I make the partial view disappear?

Thanks for the help!

Rendering Partial view postback with data posted back and entire view context

This is the base Index.aspx view:<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage" %> <%@ Import Namespace="LMWebUI.Components" %> <%@ Import Namespace="LMWebUI.Models" %> <asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="TitleContent" runat="server"> </asp:Content> <asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server"> <% Session["HasScripts"] = "false"; %> <% if (Utility.FixNull(Session["LoggedIn"],"false") == "false" ) {%> <% ViewData["Login"] = new PartialRequest ( new { controller = "Account", action = "LogIn" } ); ((PartialRequest)ViewData["Login"]).Invoke(ViewContext); %> <%} else {%> <div>Logged In Content here</div> <%}%> <script type="text/javascript"> LMx.init(); </script> </asp:Content> This is a helper class> that I found elsewhere, doesn't solve the problem, but still works to display the viewpublic class PartialRequest { public RouteValueDictionary RouteValues { get; private set; } public PartialRequest(object routeValues

Office backstage view not displaying workflow options and workflow banners not appearing

I am running the SharePoint 2010 Contoso RTM vhd (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=751fa0d1-356c-4002-9c60-d539896c66ce&displaylang=en) and want to access how Office 2010 participates in workflows.  I have created a new document library, configured a workflow on the document library and have selected the "Connect to Office" button. However I cannot see any workflow banners appearing on documents that have pending tasks and I cannot see the workflow options in the backstage "Save & Send" screen.  My document library is however available and displayed in the "Save to SharePoint" locations. I built a 32 bit Windows 7 client to see if that worked, but I get the same issue.

Migrate an ASP.NET MVC 2 project to MVC 3 Razor view

Hi all, I have an application which has been built in MVC 2.0. I need to upgrade it to MVC 3.0 and that too by using Razor CSHTML engine. All the information which I got on the net was for MVC 3.0 Webform engine but nothing much for migrating to Razor. I would be very grateful if somebody shows me the steps or sample walkthrough for the purpose of this migration. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and regards, Tanay.

Load View and Partial View (Master/Detail) with default parameter(s) ?

MVC newb.  Members view (index) that lists members that users can select to show a partial view in the same view with details for the selected member Uses jquery (Ajax.ActionLink) to call a partial view method in the members controller to then load the members detail section Works fine up to here....but I'd like to load the partial view with "member" details for a default or random member on initial load -- ie not through the Actionlink selection How do I invoke the partial view method on the initial load?  I'm sure this is basic stuff but still still getting my head around the mvc "way" Can someone point me to an example or explanation somewhere?  (not turning anything up on my searches thus far)   thanks in advance!!

Displaying a count of records in a Data View Web Part outside the web part itself?

I have a DVWP with 400 rows. I have these inside a Div tag, which makes it scrollable. I also have several URL filters set up to show certain records. I would like to add the count to the page to display the number of records when the filters are activated. I have added the View Footer to the DVWP but this just gets placed at the bottom (still inside the Div tag). It would also be cool to be able to do counts with criteria so I could do comparisons (ie, 50 records overdue/400 total etc). Thanks

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

problem with displaying items in list view web part

I have a list view webpart at default display form. Default Display form display items (for example) from the contracts documents library. List view webpart also associated with the same documents library (contracts). In such case this webpart doesn't display any item. But if I add another list view web part associated with warrants document library it display item without any problems. Is it possible to bind list view webpart to another data source for contracts document library? Or maybe another solution? Thanks!

Partial view and postbacks - undesired results

Sorry for the long post,I'm having problems after the postback. Each time I post back the changes made on the ui - I see the changes in the RateViewModel passed back, but the code populates each control in the table with these values - instead of the values from the ViewModel. What am I doing wrong?Object.public class CurrentAndFutureRate{        public int ParentID { get; set; }        public int ParentTypeID { get; set; }        public string ParentTypeDescription { get; set; }        public decimal CurrentRateValue { get; set; }        public DateTime CurrentStartDate { get; set; }        public DateTime? CurrentEndDate { get; set; }}View Modelspublic class CurrentAndFutureRateViewModel { public List<CurrentAndFutureRate> CurrentAndFutureRates { get; set; } } public class RateViewModel { public int ParentID { get; set; } public int ParentTypeID { get; set; } public int? RateID { get; set; } public decimal RateValue { get; set; } public DateTime StartDate { get; set; } public DateTime? EndDate { get; set; } } Master page renders a partial view(1) and the partial view displays a table

Problem displaying a view correctly in MVC app using HTML.TextBoxFor() with VB



I have a test app with a form view.

I cannot get the view to display correctly instead of displaying a series to text boxes it displays quoted html.

I suspect that my problem is related to my VB syntax for my Linq

The C# equivilant works but my shop uses VB so I must convert the code.

Here is the code from the view:

      <% Using (Html.BeginForm)%>
          <p>Your name: <%: Html.TextBoxFor(Function(m) m.Name).ToString%></p>
          <p>Your email: <%: Html.TextBoxFor(Function(m) m.Email).ToString%></p>
          <p>Your phone: <%: Html.TextBoxFor(Function(m) m.Phone).ToString%></p>
          <p>Will you attend? <br />
          <%  Dim slist As New Generic.List(Of SelectListItem)
          slist.Add(New SelectListItem With {.Text = "Yes", .Value = Boolean.TrueString})
          slist.Add(New SelectListItem With {.Text = "No", .Value = Boolean.FalseString})
       <%: Html.DropDownListFor(Function(m) m.WillAttend, slist, "Choose an option")%>
       <input type="submit" value="Submit RSVP" />
       <% End Using%>

Using a partial in a strongly typed view


I have an application that is going to allow a user to create records of type Customer and Seller that have one section in common, but other fields that are unique to their types.

Both of these types will have an address block for their create view.

If I have a strongly typed Customer or Seller view, how can I use the view partial (containing the address block) that I've created? I've tried creating a view model, but I don't know how to have the create page inherit the Customer model and the addressBlock partial inherit the addressBlockForm partial model...

Hopefully, this makes sense, and thank you for any help.

[Problem] MVC DropDownList Cascading Partial View


Hi, i'm trying to implement a cascading dropdownlist inside a partial view.

this is the code:

js function

function dropDownListCascade() {
    $('#idTipoAntecedente').change(function () {
        $.ajaxSetup({ cache: false });
        var selectedItem = $(this).val();
        if (selectedItem == "" || selectedItem == 0) {
            $("#idAntecedente").attr('disabled', 'enabled');

Start project from view => full view path appended to the URL => 404



If I start the project while in a view, it appends that view name (and path) to the URL, and I get a 404 error.


If I then switch to any non-view, like the controller and hit F5, it starts up with no additional URL and gets routed to the default controller.


 Is there a way to fix this? Is it an option (to not pass the view url on debug), or a routing cfg issue? I'm no MVC expert.

routes.MapRoute(	"Default", "{controller}/{action}/{id}", new { controller = "Home", action = "Index", id = "" } );

Thank you 

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. :)
