Hi everyone in this blog, I’m explaining about partial view in mvc.
In general a Partial View is like a web user control in ASP.Net applications. Partial Views and User Controls serve the same purpose.
ASP.NET MVC consists of three main parts - Model, View and Controller. Model represents the business entity or domain object and it manages the state of View. Controller controls the application logic and communication between Model and View. A view represents the user interface, which receives input from user and sends to controller for further action. In this blog, I explain about ASP.NET MVC special views like Partial Views and Layouts.
