Put the default data in your model within the default Index action (if that's what you're using as your default). Then simply pass that data to the view.

e.g.

public ViewResult Index()
{
    YourModel model = new YourModel();

    model.TheProperty = "the default value";

    return View(model);
}

Open in new window


Be sure to set up your view to expect a model of that type:

@model YourModel

<!-- some HTML -->

<div>@Model.TheProperty</div>

Open in new window


Note the difference in casing of "model" when you are declaring the model type (little "m") and actually using the model instance (big "M").

not working. It alerts duplicated below

  public ActionResult Index()
        {

            return View();
        }


public ViewResult Index()
{
   //  assume i just want to show  below when it is on load
      Response.write("Hello");
     return View();
}

You cannot have two methods with the same name and parameter list (or lack of)--even if the return type is different.

It's what I showed you in my first post. The only difference is that you created an entirely new method, whereas I suggested modifying the existing method.

MVC doesn't work the same way as WebForms. There are no "events" in the same sense that there are in WebForms.

Controller methods respond to GET and POST requests on a route, and render a View passing it a Model containing the data to be displayed. There is no "Load" event because the controller is not a Page, and does not have any events.

So, as kaufmed has already stated, to do what you want you need to pass a model to a View which is returned by the default method of your default controller.
