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%>

html.textboxfor and trimming



I building contact manager ( http://www.asp.net/mvc/tutorials/iteration-1-create-the-application-vb).


When the data is returned for editing from the database it uses tihis:

<%: Html.TextBoxFor(Function(model) model.Phone)%>

This shows the phone number and a lot of spaces in a textbox. This creates a problem with validation.

How is it possible to trim the string before it is sent to the textbox?


Wierd Html.TextBoxFor behaviour on ajax request



In my MVC web application

I have an aspx page created by a simple url ~Controller/Action. The Action creates a model object by calling through to some application logic. The aspx view for this Action makes a call to RenderPartial passing in the just created object

<% Html.RenderPartial("MyView", Model.MyObject); %>  which is a strongly typed partial view.

This partial is rendered using presentational logic and using the Model.MyObject supplied and renders textboxes and labels etc -I am using Html.TextBoxFor to render out the text boxes.

The partial view contains a dropdownlist, that i hook up to a JQuery ajax request to go and fetch a new render for the partial view itself.

The view presents a user's address, first-name, last-name, address line 1, line 2, city, postcode etc and allows them to change address to a different country and the dropdown gives a choice of countries.  Changing countries goes and fetches a new layout for the form, based on each country's requirement, eg UK has post code, US has Zip code, different regex etc etc

So - The Ajax request goes through the EXACT same logic as the original Get request to build the model for the view, and the HTML is passed back to the JQuery request to update the <div> containing address details.

In VS2010 i can see the mo

validating is not working when I put HTML.TextBox instead of HTML.TextBoxFor


hi guys,

I have a comment form inside the blog posts. in the form, if the user is authenticated, I will assign the values of the user into textboxes. that part is as follows;

        @if (!User.Identity.IsAuthenticated) {
            <td class="td-field-name">@Html.LabelFor(model => model.Comment.CoommenterName)</td>
            <td class="td-field-separator">:</td>
            <td class="td-field">@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Comment.CoommenterName, new { @class = "input-text-1" })</td>
            <td class="td-field-name">@Html.LabelFor(model => model.Comment.CommenterEmail)</td>
            <td class="td-field-separator">:</td>
            <td class="td-field">@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Comment.CommenterEmail, new { @class = "input-text-1" })</td>
            <td><span class="font-9px italic">will not be displayed ! (but will show your <a href="http://gravatar.com">Gravatar</a>)</span></td>
        } else {

            <td class="

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Maintain HTML Radio Button Selection Inside GridView After Postback

Long time ago I wrote an article about getting the value of the selected RadioButtons inside the GridView control. The code did not addresssed the postback issue which means that the selected radio button was cleared after the postback occurs.

Rendering ASP.NET Script References into the Html Header

One thing that I've come to appreciate in control development in ASP.NET that use JavaScript is the ability to have more control over script and script include placement than ASP.NET provides natively. Specifically in ASP.NET you can use either the ClientScriptManager or ScriptManager to embed scripts and script references into pages via code.

Embed Youtube inside Ajax Html Editor- problem



When inserting a simple embed of youtube inside the ajax editor, on firefox and chrome problems occur. On the other hand on internet explorer 8 everything works fine. I found this solution http://www.nopcommerce.com/boards/t/4228/bug-in-ajax-html-editor.aspx . 

My question is where do I find the DesignPanel.pre.js ?

Re-positioning an HTML container with javascript onresize with a Master page.


I have an HTML <div> container that I float to the right of a gridview.  When the browser window is maximized, it looks fine.  When minimized, the gridview positions below the floating container and most of the data is pushed off the bottom of the browser - you have to scroll down to see it.

If I position the floating container above the gridview it looks fine in a minimized window, but looks real bad when maximized.

What I want to do is use a javascript: onresize event to re-position the floating container up or down depending on the window.inner.width AND do it with a Master/Content page structure AND do it for only the one page where needed.

I can capture the onresize event and display the window dimensions but haven't figured-out how to do it with a Content page that still uses the Master page.  I think I'm having a very "thick" week...

VS 2010 HTML validation "in CSS" option - where the hell is it?


In VS 2008 there is a very useful feature of background HTML validation - it checks if CSS class name is valid i.e. it exists in one of the linked css files. But VS 2010 Express does not do that any more. And the relevant setting in Options->Text Editor->HTML->Validation->in CSS is not there. Ok, maybe they made it paid for option? VS 2010 Professional? Not there. Or maybe VS 2010 Ultimate? Not a trace.

1. am I blind?

2. they decided it is too convenient to use and removed it?

3. they will "introduce" it in SP1?

What is going on? That one thing made me move back to VS 2008 web developer.


VWD rearranging HTML


Hey guys,

Have been VWD for a while now but VWD2010 seems to have one really annoying habbit. I'll write a whole load HTML with server tags and when I save, not always but quite often, VWD will squash all tags together in seemingly random arrangement completely removing my formatting conventions that make it easy for me to read. All the tags are still in the right order and makes no difference to how the page works, it just makes it really difficult to read quickly when scanning over it looking for a particular section.

For example:

        <asp:Panel ID="pnlConfirm" runat="server" Visible="false">
<asp:Table ID="tblConfBilling" runat="server">
<asp:Label ID="lblName" runat="server" Text="" />
<asp:Label ID="lblAddress" runat="server" Text="" />

Encoding en Decoding HTML



I stored in a database a ntext "<b>Hello</b>";

But when  I read it from the database I see <b>Hello</b> instead of Hello.

In the html source I see this: &lt;b&gt;Hello&lt;/b&gt;

Any Idea?


Html.PageLink not resolving ... any documentation?


Downloaded the code from here:


The Register.cshtml is having commented code which enables sending email to users for email verification.

This is the link not getting resolved properly in the email:

var confirmationLink = Html.PageLink("~\\Account\\Confirm", "click to Ccnfirm your Account.", new {token = token});

Mail.Send(email, "Confirm Your Security Demo Account", confirmationLink.ToString());

It is opening something like this: http://confirm/?token=tR9nWxnBPN34Kag

Note: I get the email but the link is not resolved properly.

Just for workaround and testing I did this and it worked:

var confirmationLink = "<a href='http://localhost:50620/Account/Confirm.cshtml?token=" + token.ToString() +"'> Please Confirm Your Account </a>";

If anyone can share some light on this Html.PageLink method and why is it not working?<

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!
