.Net MVC Html.ActionLink tutorial with examples

The Html.ActionLink creates an anchor element based on parameters supplied. In this example, we will learn how to use Asp .Net MVC Html.ActionLink. We will also create multiple types of Action links like:

  1. HtmlActionLink without controller name.
  2. HtmlActionLink with controller name.
  3. HtmlActionLink with parameters.
  4. HtmlActionLink with Area.
  5. HtmlActionLink with CSS class

Html.ActionLink Without Controller Name

@Html.ActionLink("Click Here", "About")

Here "Click Here" is the Link text and "About" is the Action Method you wish to call.
Note: This will only work if your view and calling Action Method resides in the same Controller.

You can see it has automatically added Controller name "Home" in an anchor element.
 


Html.ActionLink With Controller Name

@Html.ActionLink("Click Here", "About","CompanyInfo")

Here "Click Here" is the Link text and "About" is the Action Method you wish to call and CompanyInfo is the Controller name.
This will be useful when you wants to call Action Method which resides in other Controller rather than Controller that generated view.
