Is there some easy way to handle multiple submit buttons from the same form? Example.

<% Html.BeginForm("MyAction", "MyController", FormMethod.Post); %>

<input type="submit" value="Send" />

<input type="submit" value="Cancel" />

<% Html.EndForm(); %>

Any idea how to do this in ASP.NET Framework Beta? All examples I've googled for have single buttons in them.

    Re: Handling multiple submit button in asp.net mvc

    Here is a mostly clean attribute-based solution to the multiple submit button issue based heavily on the post and comments from.

    [AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple = false, Inherited = true)]

            public class MultipleButtonAttribute : ActionNameSelectorAttribute

            {

                public string Name { get; set; }

                public string Argument { get; set; }

     

                public override bool IsValidName(ControllerContext controllerContext, string actionName, MethodInfo methodInfo)

                {

                    var isValidName = false;

                    var keyValue = string.Format("{0}:{1}", Name, Argument);

                    var value = controllerContext.Controller.ValueProvider.GetValue(keyValue);

     

                    if (value != null)

                    {

                        controllerContext.Controller.ControllerContext.RouteData.Values[Name] = Argument;

                        isValidName = true;

                    }

     

                    return isValidName;

                }

            }

    razor:

    <form action="" method="post">

     <input type="submit" value="Save" name="action:Save" />

     <input type="submit" value="Cancel" name="action:Cancel" />

    </form>

    and controller:

    [HttpPost]

            [MultipleButton(Name = "action", Argument = "Save")]

            public ActionResult Save(MessageModel mm) { ... }

     

            [HttpPost]

            [MultipleButton(Name = "action", Argument = "Cancel")]

            public ActionResult Cancel(MessageModel mm) { ... }
