Label replacement in MVC - linefeeds, carraige returns, <br /> replacements.

Hi

I have information from a number of different sources in my database which I would like to display to my user so what I did was I created a query to gather all the information.

To display the information, i did the following:

ViewData.Add("Details",fullname + "<br />" + partner + "<br />" + address + "<br />" + phone + "<br />" +
                cell + "<br /><br /><a href='myhyperlinkpage.aspx?id=" + id + "'>Edit My Details</a>" );

But it is all formatted incorrectly in the page. The <br /> tags show up as text and my link shows up as <a href='myhyperlinkpage.aspx?id=2046d69cfa888888015797'>Edit My Details</a>

How should I be doing this?

Why hard-code the line breaks into your controller code?

In any event, you need to use the @Html.Raw method to dump this out and have it not be encoded by the view engine.

e.g.

@Html.Raw(ViewData["Details"])
