I want to create a functionality in my MVC website that enables users to tick a checkbox on the index page where records are listed and it redirects them to a page, where they can type in a surname in one text box and when they click on the submit button, all selected records are updated with that same surname.

I haven't got a clue as to how this can be implemented. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a few pointers.

Thanks :)

What I have tried:

I have implemented the checkbox on the view, but I don't know how to get multiple ids from the checkboxes and to use them in another view

ids aren't submitted as part of the form. One way of doing this is to make sure the checkboxes all have the same "name" and the "value" of the checkbox will be the id of the record it represents. When you submit the form the value of the checkbox field will be all the ids comma separated, so "1,2,3,4". Store these values in the Session so you can recall them on your update page. If you can't get model binding to convert the comma list to an array of ids automatically you can do it yourself with the string.Split function. For each id execute an update statement, or you can keep the ids comma separated and use the "IN" SQL clause to batch update them;

update [table] set [surname] = 'name' where ID in (1,2,3,4)

It's up to you; i.e. you write code. You have the selections and the name; you write the update query using the (database) keys of the selections.
