If I have 3 text boxes for 3 field which need to be appended together, how would you go about doing this?

for example:

@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.PhoneNumber, new { @id = "PhoneNumber1"})

@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.PhoneNumber, new { @id = "PhoneNumber2"})

@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.PhoneNumber, new { @id = "PhoneNumber3"})

but when I call model.PhoneNumber in the controller, I only get the first text box value.

    Hi Goti,


    You would need multiple phone numbers in your model phoneNumber1, phoneNumber2, phoneNumber3 as you can only bind one element of one type to the model.

    Alternatively you can use FormCollection

    use standard imports instead of model binding

    <input type="text" value="" name="phoneNumber" id="phoneNumber1" />

    <input type="text" value="" name="phoneNumber" id="phoneNumber2" />

    <input type="text" value="" name="phoneNumber" id="phoneNumber3" />

    Then in your Controller

    [HttpPost]

    public ActionResult Index(MyModel model, FormCollection frm){

    //get elements from form

    String[] numbers = frm["phoneNumber"].Split(',');

    // you will have your 3 numbers

    }
