Validation errors in asp.net MVC application are preventing the user to exit form/view.

How to avoid that so that user can exit the form/view without being forced to enter values? Or How to implement cancel/exit button without forcing the user to enter values in html controls?

What you're saying doesn't really make sense. The user could click a link on the page to take them elsewhere or type a new address into the URL. The validation will prevent them from submitting the page but it wouldn't prevent them from leaving the page (i.e. going to another URL).

If you want a Cancel button just put another button on the form with a type of "button" and an onclick that sends the user to another URL.

<button type="button" onclick="window.location.href = 'yourpage.html'">Cancel</button> 

Open in new window
