Join Jess Chadwick for an in-depth discussion in this video Pass data from the controller to the view, part of Learn ASP.NET Core MVC: The Basics.
- [Voiceover] Now that I've shown you the basics…of working with Razor Views,…let's see how controllers can pass data…to the view so that the view…can display that data to the user.…For example, let's say we want to be able…to set the title, author, date of the post,…and the body of the post as variables…in the post action of the blog controller,…and pass that info to be rendered in the view.…The easiest way to do this is with the ViewBag property.…This property is a dynamic object…that is accessible both on the controller and the view.…
So, whenever we set a value…on this object in the controller,…it will also be available in the view.…And since it's dynamic,…we can just access it as though…the property already exists, like this.…Then, we can create the view for this action,…and just read those properties from the ViewBag…to render them right in the page in the appropriate places.…Now, when we run the site and access the blog post,…we can see the data we've set in the controller…getting passed to the view, and rendered in the browser.…
