This is what I want to happen: User click an item in the grid and that items is loaded above the grid, the grid does not change.

This is what happens:  User click an item in the grid and that items is loaded above the grid, the grid disappears.

I have the grid in the main view and the item display portion in a partial view.

I'm kind of an MVC newbe, so if this in not the correct way to do this what is?

Is this the code that has the Ajax.ActionLink that you are referring to?

   @using (Html.BeginForm("_Grid", "MyModel"))
    {
        <div>
            @grid.GetHtml(

                    columns: new[] 
                    {
                         grid.Column(header: "Id", canSort: false, format: (item) => Ajax.ActionLink(((int)item.RecId).ToString(), "_editPartial", "MyModel", new {recId = item.RecId}, new AjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId = "_editPartialDiv"})),
                })
        </div>
    }

Open in new window

Got it figured out. Changed the grid column to an anchor that executes an async GET via ajax. Not really sure why this works over the ActionLink which is also doing an async GET via ajax... but it does.


GRID LINK COLUMN

grid.Column(header: "Id", format:@<text> <a href="javascript:loadEditDiv(@item.RecId);" id="Edit_@item.RecId">@item.RecId</a></text>)

JAVASCRIPT
        function loadEditDiv(RecId) {
            $.ajax({
                type: "GET",
                cache: false,
                url: "@Url.Action("_editPartialDiv", "MyModel")",
                data: { RecId: RecId },
                dataType: "html",
                async: true,
                success: function (data) {
                    $("#_editPartialDiv").html(data);
                }
            });
