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 https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb384936(v=vs.108).aspx or https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb383977(v=vs.108).aspx.


The linkText parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) 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.
