"When a partial view is instantiated, it gets its own copy of the ViewDataDictionary object that is available to the parent view. The partial view therefore has access to the data of the parent view. However, if the partial view updates the data, those updates affect only the partial view's ViewData object. The parent view's data is not changed.
Is there a common way around this?
For instance I have a View containing two Partial Views (User Controls) that source the same data from the Parents ViewData. The first Partial View is able to update (add/delete) certain data from the Parents View Data, however the second Partial View sources the same data but obviously isn't reflecting the changes owing to the above MSDN statement.
