Just a quick follow up on my previous post specifically about rendering partial views using the Spark View Engine. If you want to use a partial view and you also want to pass it a model, you just create parameter and pass the model in that parameter.
As I stated, the convention for the shared content is to create a file in the “Shared” view directory and prefix the file with the “_”.
I have created a post list partial file and I am going to call it from my “Index” view in the “Home” folder.
In the HomeController class, the Index action is just returning 10 items in a IList collection.
Next, my Index view passes the collection of posts to the partial control. The Index.spark file has the following code.
Now the model is in the partial file and I can do with it what ever I want. In this example, the _postList.spark file has the following code that loops through the collection of posts and displays the “Title”.
The above sample produces this partial view.
