I need to generate some URLs in a model in ASP.NET MVC. I'd like to call something like UrlHelper.Action() which uses the routes to generate the URL. I don't mind filling the usual blanks, like the hostname, scheme and so on.

Is there any method I can call for that? Is there a way to construct an UrlHelper?

    I like Omar's answer but that's not working for me. Just for the record this is the solution I'm using now:

    var httpContext = HttpContext.Current;
    if (httpContext == null) {
      var request = new HttpRequest("/", "", "");
      var response = new HttpResponse(new StringWriter());
      httpContext = new HttpContext(request, response);
    var httpContextBase = new HttpContextWrapper(httpContext);
    var routeData = new RouteData();
    var requestContext = new RequestContext(httpContextBase, routeData);
    return new UrlHelper(requestContext);
