Controller Questions that i don't understand

Vote:
 

I have a search controller that takes in the standard PageType SearchController(SearchPage currentPage).  My question is, how do I wire up this controller to acces this base on a url
SearchController(SearchPage currentPage, string q, int Page)
so my url looks as such "/search/searchtermhere/1".  I am just really uncertain how to accomplish.  Thanks in advance.

There some ways of making this work. Here is one example:


In an initialization module, add the following in the "Initialize(InitializationEngine context)" method:

            const string segments = "{language}/{node}/{action}/{search}/{page}";
            var defaults = new {action = "index", search = "", page = 1};
 
            RouteTable.Routes.MapEnterpriseRoutes("searchInsideRoot", segments, defaults);
            RouteTable.Routes.MapPageRootRoute("searchOutsideRoot", segments, defaults);

Now you can have controller action looking like this:
public ActionResult Index(SearchPage currentPage, string search, int page)
        {
            var model = new ViewModel();
            return View(model);
        }

And youre url can be: /Search/index/SomeSearchQuery/4/

Hope this helps.

Hey Jonas,  I ahve tried and tried to get this to work and for some reason, I am unable to use the above code.  If i don't inherit from the Controller<T> I can get this to work, but as soon as I inherit, it goes all whonky.  Yeh, thats right, I said whonky :).  Am I missing something.  I doing DI for the controllers like in the preview version, do you think this has something to do with it?

I don't know why id doesnt work for you. Does it work if you only have an empty contructor?

Hi,

I have the same problem. Did you get it to work. I will be very happy if you will share it with me.

Thanks!

I am using a very similar functionality for a pager on my listing page.

This is how my code looks like, perhaps it helps you.

    public class ListingPageController : PageController<ListingPage>
    {

        public ActionResult Index(ListingPage currentPage, int? page)
        {
            var viewModel = new ListingPageViewModel();
            AutoMapper.Mapper.Map(currentPage, viewModel);

            // not important
            
            return View(viewModel);
        }
    }

Please note that I have a nullable int in Index, because my edit view doesn't work if it's not nullable.

This is how a part of the view looks like:

@Html.ActionLink(page.Nr.ToString(CultureInfo.InvariantCulture), "Index", new { page = page.Nr })

And this is the RouteModule:

    [ModuleDependency(typeof(EPiServer.Web.InitializationModule))]
    public class RouteModule : IInitializableModule
    {

        public void Initialize(InitializationEngine context)
        {
            const string segments = "{language}/{node}/{action}/{page}";
            var defaults = new { action = "Index", page = 1 };

            RouteTable.Routes.MapEnterpriseRoutes("pageInsideRoot", segments, defaults);
            RouteTable.Routes.MapPageRootRoute("pageOutsideRoot", segments, defaults);
        }

        public void Preload(string[] parameters)
        {
        }

        public void Uninitialize(InitializationEngine context)
        {
        }
    }

Perhaps you can try and see if this works for you.

Excuse my ignorance but why am I not seeing the MapEnterpriseRoutes on the RouteTable.Routes namespace?

Have you included using EPiServer.Web.Routing; ? What is your version of EPiServer 7?
