Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type AjaxHelper. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see b8020aae-374d-46a9-bcb7-8cc2390b93b6 or 175ce3ff-9bbf-4e64-8421-faeb81a0bb51.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The linkText parameter is null or empty.

This method renders an anchor element. When the user clicks the link, MVC asynchronously invokes the specified action method via an HTTP POST request. The response of that action method can be used to update a specified DOM element, depending on which AjaxOptions are specified.

The htmlAttributes parameter consists of an object that contains name/value pairs. The attributes that are specified in the name/value pairs depend on the HTML element that is being rendered. For example, for an anchor (a) element, you might provide the following anonymous object:

new { target="_self", name="summary" }
