I am new to MVC web development so I am trying to discover this pattern.
I tried to create a new MVC application that navigate between pages.So I create 3 views (home,product,about) and a controller (Site)"The example is taken from the last lab Learn MVC (Model view controller) Step by Step in 7 days – Day 2[^]

code of the controller:

public class SiteController : Controller
       // GET: /Site/
       public ActionResult GoTohome()
           return View("Home");
       public ActionResult AboutUs()
           return View("About");
       public ActionResult SeeProduct()
           return View("Product");

I am sure that i didn't get the routing staff because when debugging I get "The view 'Home' or its master was not found. The following locations were searched"
I have modified the global.asax file like this

public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)
                 "Default", // Route name
                 "{controller}/{action}/{id}", // URL with parameters
                 new { controller = "Site", action = "GoTohome", id = UrlParameter.Optional } // Parameter defaults

Thank you for your help.

Solution 1

new { controller = "Site(controler name) ", action = "GoTohome(action name)", id = UrlParameter.Optional }

check this part ....

if home is view than action name must be home..

new { controller = "Site ", action = "home", id = UrlParameter.Optional }

Yes Home is a view so I renamed the "Gotohome" action to "Home" as you said but i got the same error!!

I found the error,I have to add a folder named Site into the Views folder.However i didn't get why i should add this folder because Site is the name of the controller not the folder

any explanation
