I have an InvoiceEdit.cshtml page. i have written a @function {public List<int> AddInvoiceFeeItem (List<int> feeList) { } in InvoiceEdit.cshtml. I can call the function inline in the page ( @AddInvoiceFeeItem(); ) and it works just fine.

How do i call this same function from a user initiated event like a button.click or link click ?

Well MVC is all about actions, so you simply create a link to the controller/action and expose the functionality through an action.

@Html.ActionLink(@Person.Name, "EditPerson", new { id = @Person.Id }

I'm still not clear on this.  My @function, named AddInvoiceFee, (residing inside the .cshtml file) returns a List<int> and it accepts a List<int> as a parameter.  I am not sure how the ActionLink can call the AddInvoiceFee function (that is not part of a controller/action) and further more, how does it retrieve the return value of the function.

Like I said on my first comment, I'm fairly new to MVC and Razor.

Sorry. Chaotic at the moment. So, .net code is server side. It is not included in the final html.do a "view source" on the page and you will see. So you'd want to use javascript on the client side or expose that.net functionality via a new action.

I apologize for the late response... had to set aside the project I was working on.  The solution did not really addressed my question in a way that I could understand.  I did mention that I am new to MVC/Razor and I was looking for more of a code example as an answer.
