hi,
I am teaching myself a bit of MVC web design. I have a asp.net VB site that I want to try and convert some features to MVC.

I have got my data in a vbhtml page showing, but I need to apply some rules

ie,

convert

   @Html.DisplayFor(Function(modelItem) item.FLT_INCIDENT )

to say something like, if item.FLT_INCIDENT value is 2, then display the word Request.

I used to use

  If e.Row.Cells(2).Text = "2" Then
                e.Row.Cells(2).Text = "Request"
                RequestImage.Visible = True
            Else
                e.Row.Cells(2).Text = "Incident"
                IncidentImage.Visible = True

            End If

Open in new window


when it was in a Grid View.

I don't understand if I should use a helper function or not.

Hi,

You may use If operator, that will
@Html.DisplayFor(Function(modelItem) If(item.FLT_INCIDENT = "2","Request","Incident") )

Open in new window
