First time working with MVC.  I've made good progress but I need to know how to handle the issue of capturing a specific row item the user clicked.  The attached EESelected Item_Problem Pic shows the screen.  Obviously there are more items on the screen but for simplicity I showed just one to get the point across.  When the user clicks the 'Execute' it fires the action 'Execute', as seen in the attached Code_Debug_Pic.  I need this action to contain iether the specific item and id the user clicked.  from here I need to look up corosponding records related to the item id.  the issue is how do I capture the item info from the screen when the user clicks it?

If you need more info let me know.

Great link, thanks.  I've got a few things done, but being green with html and views, I now need to pass the selected item to the action link.  here's the code.

 WebGrid grid = new WebGrid(Model.Where(d => d.Disc_Name == discName),selectionFieldName: "selectedRow");
       
                                   
        <pre>@grid.GetHtml(

        fillEmptyRows: false,

        alternatingRowStyle: "alternative-row",

        headerStyle: "grid-header",

        footerStyle: "foot-grid",

        mode: WebGridPagerModes.All,

        firstText: "<< First",

        previousText: "< Previous", nextText: "Next >",

        lastText: "Last >>",



        columns: new[] {  

        grid.Column("Disc_Name",header:"",canSort:false),
        grid.Column("Software", canSort:false),
        grid.Column(  

           "",  

            header: "Action",  

            format: @<text>  

                    @Html.ActionLink("Execute",   "Execute")  
                     @Html.ActionLink("Execute",   "Execute", grid.selectedrow)  


                    </text>  

                    )
                     
         })
         
         

You'll notice I've added the grid.selectedrow to the ActionLink above.  I have no idea if this is correct or how it should be done.

roopeshreddy:  I got it working

I'd like you to copy the steps below and paste it as a comment, then I'll accept it as the answer.  why because it's important others can learn from this and EE makes it difficult to accept my own answer along with yours, without major hassle.  Ive found it's easier doing this.

1)
Set the grid to selectionfilename = "selectedRow"
Eg: WebGrid grid = new WebGrid(model, selectionFieldName: "selectedRow");

2)
add arguments to the action matching parameters of the action controller Action:
 columns: new[] {  
        grid.Column("Disc_Name",header:"",canSort:false),
        grid.Column("Software", canSort:false),
        grid.Column(  
           "",  
            header: "Action",  
            format: @<text>  
                    @Html.ActionLink("Execute",   "Execute", new {DiscName = item.Disc_Name, Software = item.Software})  
                    </text>  
                    )

3)
Add the parameters to the Action:
public ActionResult Execute(string DiscName, string Software)

roopeshreddy: there's a problem with that.  My experience with including myself as an answer initiates the question to be removed, and I don't want to do that.  I want others to learn from what we did.  when I accept my answer the question goes to support for deletion by default.

If you know of a way so i can accept both our solutions without the question being marked for delete then I'm all ears.
