Put the abc get data into your home controller index action, if you look at your roots confit it should be the default controller and action so when you hit the domain without any relative URL then it will pickup the defaults

Hi,

This is more a bit of an example of what dean said:

Go to your App_Start folder and open RouteConfig.cs:

Find the code for a route with a name "Default" or create one and use the following code:

            routes.MapRoute(
                name: "Default",
                url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}",
                defaults: new { controller = "abc", action = "getData", id = UrlParameter.Optional }
            );

Open in new window


Now, each time you go to your domain ("http://localhost:3579/") you will get the action getData of the controller abc.

Hi,

I know that what you said, it will work only initially at

the time of application is loading, but after loading

the user will do different actions, for example, the user

will click button for submitting data, or the user will click

on link to get or post data, so, what ever the action it

may be i don't want to show the controller and action name in the

url which displays in the browser

 so, please suggest.

I know that solutions like using angular may help, in which case your url would look always as:

http://localhost:3579/#

but this may lead to a totally different implementation of your site, which might be a huge overhead if you are not at the start of creating it.

In the standard MVC implementation, you would need to differentiate somehow between controllers and actions, and that cannot happen using the url you suggest.

So, i would suggest, either use Angular (you may check my answer here for a sample implementation).

Hi I would be cautious of using angular to solve this issue, angular is client side eg JavaScript within the browser, you are actually having issues dealing with routing on the server side, so if you starting using angular you would most likely be communicating with web API, and If you are not sure how Mvc routing works well your back to square one. Ps angular is a great tool especially when it comes to unit testing your JavaScript as an added bonus!
