View Full Version : [CLOSED] [RAZOR] How to access ext.net controls from controller method

May 07, 2012, 4:07 PM

I'm trying to access and manipluate a control defined in a .cshtml file (below) from the controller class implementing the ButtonClick event in the controller file.

I've tried X.GetCtl which doesnt work. Is this a way of getting a reference to the controls defined on a .cshtml page from its associated controlller?

View Code:

.Items(items =>
.DirectEvents(directEvents =>
directEvents.Select.Url = "/Common/DateField";
directEvents.Select.ExtraParams.Add(new Parameter()
Name = "Date",
Value = "item.value",
Mode = ParameterMode.Raw


.DirectEvents(directEvents =>
directEvents.Click.Url = "/Common/OnButtonDirectClick";

Controller Code:

public ActionResult OnButtonDirectClick(Args args)

// Get reference to the control
var ctl = X.GetCtl("DateField");

return new AjaxResult(msg);

First, Razor engine doesn't know about controls (control term is valid under WebForm engine only), there are no any instance
Second, controller action and view are not releated therefore anything in view is not accessable in an action
Third, in controller action you have to operate by input information (for example, from Request)
Fourth, you can create proxy of widget (but it is not real widget from view), it is just proxy class to load data from the client (if the widget submits it) and generate script

public AjaxResult SetValue()
var field = X.GetCmp<TextField>("Field1");
field.Text = field.Text + " - Append from the server";

return new AjaxResult();

Hi Valdimir ,
i'm trying to get selected Row from gridpanel using this function :

int selectedMember = int.Parse(MemberID);
GridPanel gridpanel = X.GetCmp<GridPanel>(GridPanelId);
MiniSiteDBEntities DBContext = new MiniSiteDBEntities();
List<CategoryMember> lstCatMem = new List<CategoryMember>();
var Query = from c in DBContext.CategoryMember
where c.MemberID == selectedMember
select c;
lstCatMem = (List<CategoryMember>)Query.ToList();
RowSelectionModel sm = gridpanel.SelectionModel.Primary as RowSelectionModel;
sm.SelectedRow = new SelectedRow(lstCatMem.Count);
foreach (CategoryMember CategoryMember in lstCatMem)
sm.SelectedRows.Add(new SelectedRow(CategoryMember.CategoryID.ToString())) ;
return new AjaxResult();

but " RowSelectionModel sm = gridpanel.SelectionModel.Primary as RowSelectionModel;" return sm null

Hi @prince-sat,

X.GetCmp() works for Postback data only. A client doesn't send any info about RowSelection, so, a proxy instance doesn't contain it.

Anyway, I can't see where you "get selected row", I see you are trying to select the new rows, isn't that so?

Then I can suggest to try this.

var sm = this.GetCmp<RowSelectionModel>("selectionModelId");
// populate SelectedRows
// call UpdateSelection

It means that I correctly understand your requirement. Please follow my recommendation.
