ASP.NET # MVC # 11 – Update a particular div asynchronously using Ajax.BeginForm mehod with example

Hi friends,

Today we will see how to update the content of a particular div in ASP.NET MVC using Ajax.BeginForm method.

Ajax.BeginForm method has 10 overloaded method you can see those overloads on link AjaxExtensions.BeginForm Method .

Now we will see how to update the div content asyncronously..


Let’s take the case where you want to do the simplest operation: update a DIV element on your page with search results when a user clicks the “search” button. You want this form to post asynchronously to the server, and you’re going to take the results, as rendered, and populate a DIV element on the page (let’s call it “results”):

Suppose we have our view as follows , the name of the div to update asynchronously is divToUpdate as follows




Home Page


<%using(Ajax.BeginForm("Save", "Home", newAjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId = "divToUpdate"}))
      {  %>
    <inputid="txtName1"name="txtName"type="text"value="" />
<%–render what you want to update here..–%>
inputtype="submit"id=’btnSubmit’value="Search" />
<% }%>


The method Ajax.Begin form will call the method “Save” on controller “Home” once the form is posted to the server.The controller method is as follows

public class HomeController : Controller
       public ActionResult Index()
           return View();
       //The Save method
       public string Save(string txtName)
           return "You have entered " + txtName;

       public ActionResult About()
           return View();


Once you click on the Search button by entering some text in to the input text box you will have output as follows
