Good time! There was a problem displaying the route in the input URL browser. To the search page on the site. The search itself is working fine - the "key" is passed, the list of found displayed. Search method in the controller takes an argument of type string for which to search:

public ActionResult SearchAllByKey(string key)



                return View(<list_of_found>);


In Global.asax prescribed route:




                      new { controller = "controller_name", action = "SearchAllByKey", key = UrlParameter.Optional }


Form which sends the value of Edit to method from View:

<% using (Html.BeginForm("SearchAllByKey", "controller_name", FormMethod.Post, new { enctype = "multipart/form-data" }))


When you click on "Go!". to a page of search results, but the URL (input line browser) shows:


instead of:


How to make sure that was visible "key" in the URL-e? Thanks in advance

In View:
<pre lang="c#"><% using (Html.BeginForm("Search", "Home", FormMethod.Post))
    <% Html.ValidationSummary(true); %>
    <input type="text" id="key" name="key" value="" />
    <input type="submit" value="Go!" />
<% } %>

Add method to controller:

public ActionResult Search(FormCollection form)
    return RedirectToAction("SearchAllByKey",  new { key = form["key"] });

Thanks LeftyX.
