I am facing the problem of how to call a controller's action methot correctly (with POST data) from a MVC form. Data are always null. From the httpcontext I can see that the form contains data, but it is trying to bind the dato to wrong model - it is trying to find model with properties like "CurrentPage.MainContentArea.FooProperty".
In order to be able somehow fetched the data I had to use attribute [BindProperty(Name = "CurrentPage.MainContentArea.FooProperty")]
I tried to inspire by the foundation project in git repo https://github.com/episerver/Foundation but to my surprise the similar logic is not working even there! (testing on GroupCreationBlockComponent). To make that block even render I had to change the path to it's view. Then I also created a new controller for the submit action method but the model binding is not working here too.
What I need is: Create block which will render an MVC form and send those data to Action method
I guess I don't need to share the source code, the foundation project is a good example.
This is becasue it is a ViewCompoent and they do not respond to post. If you want to post something use a regular controller.
Hi Mark, yes, I mentioned that in my question:"To make that block even render I had to change the path to it's view. Then I also created a new controller for the submit action method but the model binding is not working here too."
