Passing PaginatedList to ActionResult MVC C#


Passing PaginatedList to ActionResult MVC C#



I wanted to create a simple paginated search for my project. I'm having trouble with my 'advanced search' page, where I have several textbox inputs that the user would fill with the appropriate data (basically just several filters).

My view is strongly-typed with the paginatedList class similar to the NerdDinner tutorial.

In my controller, I wanted to pass the PaginatedList as a parameter since my view contains several bits of info from the PaginatedList model. The PaginatedList was null (as parameter), then I changed added the route; the object itself is not null anymore, but the values are.

View:

<%= Html.TextBox("Manufacturers", Model.Manufacturers) %> <%= Html.TextBox("OtherFilters", Model.FilterX) %> //...etc etc 

Controller:

public ActionResult AdvancedSearchResults(PaginatedList<MyModel> paginatedList) { //... } 

Any ideas? Am I even going about this correctly? Should I create a ViewModel that encapsulates the paginatedList info as well as the additional info I need instead?


What are some alternatives to RedirectToAction?

You may want to create SearchCriteria class which contains user's input data for filtering.. ASP.NET MVC Ajax Actions results enveloping Controller will have the Action as below:. AJAX with Jquery in ASP.MVC2
public ActionResult AdvancedSearchResults(SearchCriteria criteria) {     PaginatedList<MyModel> result = SearchService.Search(criteria);     return View(result); }
