I am learning .Net MVC and I am facing issue in Ajax redirect. In normall pos or get call we can return the user to some specific page like:
return RedirectToAction("AllStudents");
but using json its different or may be I don't know much about it.
I have posted my code in normal and also converted to Ajax.

What I have tried:

Controller code in general:

           public ActionResult Delete(int id)
               return RedirectToAction("AllStudents");

and I have use ajax which do the work successfully but it is not redirecting the user to another page, like in the above code it redirects the users to another page.

        public JsonResult Delete(int id)
            return Json("true", JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

My JS code: (Edited)


       function refresh(id) {

                method: "POST",
            url: "Delete/" + id,
               success: function (data) {
                   data = JSON.parse(data);

               error: function (err) {
                   console.log('Failed to get data' + err);


Action Link:
@Html.ActionLink("Delete", "Delete", new { id = item.Id }, new {onclick = "refresh("+item.Id+");"})

The action is performed and data is deleted but the browser stop like:

Please check Image

Update Result: output[^]

My Aim: I want that the data is deleted without the page refresh, like it normally does. Also please share a link, post, something which shows the page refresh using ajax. like I want to refresh a page after every 1 minute but without reloading it.

Your question is not clear at all. How do you intend to redirect to a different page without reloading the page?

The image suggests that you are submitting a form to the Delete action without using AJAX. Either your function is not being called, or you're not preventing the default action. But since we can't see how your function is wired up, we can't tell you what the problem is.

please review the updates. Now the data is deleted but it is not staying on the same page, like the screenshot of the output is attached.

Why not have the json return the url of the page you want to redirect to, or if its the same page and you are just trying to refresh it to show that an item has been deleted, then on ajax call success set the current window.location property in javascript to the current page?

actually, I just want to refresh the Table which contains my data, like without reloading the whole page.
