Good time! There was a problem displaying the route in the input URL browser. To the search page on the site. The search itself is working fine - the "key" is passed, the list of found displayed. Search method in the controller takes an argument of type string for which to search:
 

public ActionResult SearchAllByKey(string key)
 
            {
 
                //logic

                return View(<list_of_found>);
 
            } 
 

In Global.asax prescribed route:
 

routes.MapRoute(
 
                      "Search",
 
                      "Search/{key}",
 
                      new { controller = "controller_name", action = "SearchAllByKey", key = UrlParameter.Optional }
 
                  );
 

Form which sends the value of Edit to method from View:
 

<% using (Html.BeginForm("SearchAllByKey", "controller_name", FormMethod.Post, new { enctype = "multipart/form-data" }))
 
                               {%>
 
                            <%: Html.ValidationSummary(true) %>
 
                            <input type="text" id="keyValue" name="key" />
 
                            <input type="submit" value="Go!" />
 
                            <% } %>
 

When you click on "Go!". to a page of search results, but the URL (input line browser) shows:
 

http://localhost:PORT/Search
 

instead of:
 

http://localhost:PORT/Search/SOME_KEY
 

How to make sure that was visible "key" in the URL-e? Thanks in advance

Solution 1

If the FormMethod.Post and before the method put [HttpGet], the URL looks:
 
localhost:PORT/Search?key=nature
 
but should be:
 
localhost:PORT/Search/nature

Solution:
 
In View:
<pre lang="c#"><% using (Html.BeginForm("Search", "Home", FormMethod.Post))
{%>
    <% Html.ValidationSummary(true); %>
    <input type="text" id="key" name="key" value="" />
    <input type="submit" value="Go!" />
<% } %>
 
Add method to controller:
 
[HttpPost]
public ActionResult Search(FormCollection form)
{
    return RedirectToAction("SearchAllByKey",  new { key = form["key"] });
}
 
Thanks LeftyX.
