In mvc we bind a view using strongly typed model. Is there a way to get the current model value and make some change and refresh the view with same model without refreshing the content( images etc.). ie without having a complete postback just the controls needs to be refreshed.
I know about partial view.
The actual scenario in which iam currently is i have a drop down products. next to that there is a link to create a new product which is a popup form. After creating a product i have to refresh the drop down. i could use jquery to bind data using json. But iam using a strongly typed view. I wont be able to get the complete model(inc product id select from dropdown, will have to write assigning code for drop down selection ).
Using a partial view and placing just a drop down in it seems bad too....
