How to refresh a Div which contains one Custom HTML Helper in ASP.Net MVC ?

The helper will show the time. When a button is clicked then the div has to refresh & the time should change. But it is not working, can anyone help me in this regard ?

What I have tried:

Create Custom Helper & used it inside a Div. Now I want to refresh the Div after button click.

You'll need to post your code.

<div id="div1">
@DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString()
</div>

Now I want to refresh the Div 'Div1' & I wish the content will have the latest time inside that Div.

use ajax instead.

1 solution

try this
Create an Action Method to return the time string.
Controller:

C#
public ActionResult GetTime()
       {
           return Json(DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString());
       }


View:

HTML
<div id="div1">
    @DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString()
</div>

<button onclick="refreshTime()">Refresh</button>
<script>
    function refreshTime() {
        var url =  '@Url.Action("GetTime","Home")' // 'GetTime' action in 'Home' Controller
        $.ajax({
            url: url,
            data: { },
            type: "post", 
            success: function (time) {
                $('#div1').html(time);
            },
            error: function () {
                alert('error');
            }
        });
    }

</script>
