In this article we will learn how we can create and consume a user control in MVC. I hope you will like it.
Today I got a requirement of working with CellSetGrid. Since it is supported with our normal Asp.Net web pages alone, I was in a need to convert the same to a user view control and consume it in MVC because my application is in MVC4. I have done the same. So I thought of sharing you that with you all.
Using the code
To do so, You need to follow the following steps.
Add reference to your control DLL
Add new Web User Control
Register your DLL reference
<%@ Register assembly="CellSetGrid2" namespace="OLAPControls" tagprefix="cc1" %>
Place your control
<div> <cc1:CellSetGrid2 id="csg2" runat="server" connectionstring="Data Source="Your DataSource"; Initial Catalog =Your DB Name" cube="Your Cube Name" height="800px" width="1500px" /> </div>
Change default namespace
Go to ADODMGrid.ascx.cs from the solution explorer.
Change Namespace System.Web.UI.UserControl to System.Web.Mvc.ViewUserControl
Create a View
Please make sure that you have selected a partial view
Add the User Control to your View
@Html.Partial("ADODMGrid") @* Here ADODMGrid is our user control name. No need to give its extension (ascx)*@
So here we are add our new web user control to our view.
Add tagPrefix to your Web.Config
Last but the least, you need to add tagPrefix to your web.config file as follows.
<controls> <add tagPrefix="cc1" namespace="OLAPControls" assembly="CellSetGrid2, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" /> </controls>
You need to add teh above code under system.web –> Pages
Now if your your view, you can see your control there 🙂
That is all. I hope you liked this article. Please share me your feedback.
