I'm using Asp.NET MVC 5.

So i have two pages in my application.

On launch Index.cstml is the view that is displayed.
On this Index i have a link that takes me to my other page called TestPage.cshtml.

Both of these views are in the same Home folder. This Home folder is inside the Views folder of the mvc application.


Example 1:

Right now on my TestPage.csthml I have a regular text link that looks like this.

@Html.ActionLink("Go Back To Index Page", "Index", new { Rno = Model.RegionNo })

Open in new window


If you click on it it takes you back to the Index page.

I want to replace this text link with a Button.

Example 2: I replaced the actionlink shown above with a button like this. It seems to work fine:

<input type="submit" value="GoBack" class="GoBackToIndexButton" onclick="javascript: history.back()" />

Open in new window


Example 3:

I also tried a link like this and styled a table to look like  a button and this works fine.

                <a href="~/Home/Index/@RegionNo/">
                    <table id="BackToIndexBtn">
                        <tr>
                            <td style="width: 100%;" class="GoBackToIndexButtonStyle">Cancel</td>
                        </tr>
                    </table>
                </a>

Open in new window



Is there a way to set a url that looks like this <a href="~/Home/Index/@RegionNo/"></a> to a input button?

So in a button like this instead of using go the javascript back funtion I want to have the button use this url.

<input type="submit" value="GoBack" class="GoBackToIndexButton" onclick="javascript: history.back()" />

Not sure why you have a submit button for Go Back functionality. If you need to do a POST you may need a submit, otherwise a button would be enough right?
<input type="button" value="GoBack" 
onclick="location.href='@Url.Action("Index", "Home", new { id = @Model.FirstorDefault.RegionNo.ToString()}, null)'" />

Open in new window
