ASP.NET (C#) Question

ASP.Net MVC 4 Form with 2 submit buttons/actions

I have a form in ASP.Net and razor.

I need to have two ways of submitting said form. On that goes through the

Edit
action and another that goes through the
Validate
action.

How should I go about doing this?

I don't mind using JavaScript for this.

EDIT:

Using the custom attribute I get this error.


The current request for action 'Resultados' on controller type 'InspecoesController' is ambiguous between the following action methods:
System.Web.Mvc.ActionResult Validar(System.Collections.Generic.ICollection
1[Waveform.IEP.Intus.Server.Web.ViewModels.ResultadoViewModel]) on type Waveform.IEP.Intus.Server.Web.Controllers.InspecoesController
System.Web.Mvc.ActionResult Resultados(System.Collections.Generic.ICollection
1[Waveform.IEP.Intus.Server.Web.ViewModels.ResultadoViewModel]) on type Waveform.IEP.Intus.Server.Web.Controllers.InspecoesController

Answer

That's what we have in our applications:
Attribute

public class HttpParamActionAttribute : ActionNameSelectorAttribute
{
    public override bool IsValidName(ControllerContext controllerContext, string actionName, MethodInfo methodInfo)
    {
        if (actionName.Equals(methodInfo.Name, StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase))
            return true;

        var request = controllerContext.RequestContext.HttpContext.Request;
        return request[methodInfo.Name] != null;
    }
}

Actions decorated with it:


[HttpParamAction]
public ActionResult Save(MyModel model)
{
    // ...
}

[HttpParamAction]
public ActionResult Publish(MyModel model)
{
    // ...
}

HTML/Razor

@using (@Html.BeginForm())
{
    <!-- form content here -->
    <input type="submit" name="Save" value="Save" />
    <input type="submit" name="Publish" value="Publish" />
}

name attribute of submit button should match action/method name

This way you do not have to hard-code urls in javascript
