View Method (String)

Controller.View Method (String)

.NET Framework 4

Creates a ViewResult object by using the view name that renders a view.

Namespace:  System.Web.Mvc
Assembly:  System.Web.Mvc (in System.Web.Mvc.dll)

Protected Friend Function View ( _
	viewName As String _
) As ViewResult


Type: System.String
The name of the view that is rendered to the response.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Mvc.ViewResult
The view result.

The result object that is prepared by this method is written to the response by the MVC framework when the object is executed.

The following example shows how to return a view from an action method. Both action methods return the TestJson.aspx page from the Views subfolder that matches the controller name. The TestJson method defaults to returning the TestJson.aspx page. The TestJsonContent method explicitly returns the TestJson.aspx page.

Public Function TestJson() As ActionResult 
    Return View() 
End Function 
Public Function TestJsonContent() As ActionResult 
    Return View("TestJson") 
End Function
