Url.Action parameters?


In listing controller I have,

 public ActionResult GetByList(string name, string contact)
 {        
     var NameCollection = Service.GetByName(name);    
     var ContactCollection = Service.GetByContact(contact);           
     return View(new ListViewModel(NameCollection ,ContactCollection));
 }

In ASPX page I call,

 <a href="<%:Url.Action("GetByList","Listing" , new {name= "John"} , new {contact="calgary, vancouver"})%>"><span>People</span></a>

I have a problem in the ASPX code... I can pull the records for the name john. but when I give the contact="calgary, vancouver", the webpage goes to error.

How can I call two parameters in the Url.Action. I tried the below but that seems wrong too.

  <a href="<%:Url.Action("GetByList","Listing" , new {name= "John" , contact= " calgary, vancouver" })%>"><span>People</span></a>

Answers:


The following is the correct overload (in your example you are missing a closing } to the routeValues anonymous object so your code will throw an exception):

<a href="<%: Url.Action("GetByList", "Listing", new { name = "John", contact = "calgary, vancouver" }) %>">
    <span>People</span>
</a>

Assuming you are using the default routes this should generate the following markup:

<a href="/Listing/GetByList?name=John&amp;contact=calgary%2C%20vancouver">
    <span>People</span>
</a>

which will successfully invoke the GetByList controller action passing the two parameters:

public ActionResult GetByList(string name, string contact) 
{
    ...
}
