What is View Discovery ?

  • When we return a View from action method then View Discovery takes place.
  • The View Discovery determines which view file will be used for the action method.

How application finds a View ?

By default ASP .Net Core MVC application will search View in the below location.

  • Views/Controller/ViewName.cshtml
  • Views/Shared/ViewName.cshtml

Return View from Action Method

  • We can use View() method to return a view file from action method.
  • If the name of View is equal to name of Action method then we return as
return View() ;

If the name of View is equal to name of Action method then we return as

  return View("ViewName") ;

Return View from Action Method with Model

  • Model is a property class or entities that can hold the information and can be display in View .
  • If the name of View is equal to name of Action method then we return as
return View(objectmodel) ;

If the name of View is not equal to name of Action method then we return as

return View("ViewName", objectmodel ) ;

Return View from Other Location from the Project

  • Absolute path
  • Relative path

Who is responsible for View Discovery ?

Razor View Engine.

  • Razor View engine is a markup syntax which helps us to write HTML and server-side code in web pages using C# or VB.NET. It is server-side markup language however it is not at all a programming language.
  • Razor is a template engine and ASP.NET MVC has implemented a view engine which allows us to use Razor inside of an MVC application to produce HTML. However, Razor does not have any ties with ASP.NET MVC.
