Updating HTML using c# razor syntax

I currently have a div class 'updatedContent' that is populated from the results of a razor HTML action "@Html.Action("test", "test2", new { isEditable = false }) my solution is in .net MVC 4.0 and I am looking at using something like jquery .load() or Ajax.

At the moment this gets populated on load but what I need is for this to get triggered as part of an on click event on a button.

I am familiar with jquery but not using it with c# and razor syntax.

Please can someone help?

Lets say you have a GET method called MyGet on your Controller.

You also need to give an ID, ie "Results" on your div.

In your View have the following where you want your button:

@using(Ajax.BeginForm("MyGet", new AjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId = "Results", InsertionMode = InsertionMode.Replace, HttpMethod = "Get" }))
    <input type="submit" value = "Refresh" />
