Model Popup

Model Popup

Approach: We have to load webgrid in model popup on button click, where webgrid is in partial view.

Step1: Create Controller
Create controller and add view to Index method. Add a method “ProductPartial” which will return webgrid PartialView as below

    public class PopupController : Controller
        private StoreContext db = new StoreContext();
        public ActionResult Index()
            return View();
        public ActionResult ProductPartial()
            List<Product> model = db.Products.ToList();
            return PartialView("_ProductPartial", model);

Step 2: Create Partial view
Create partial view _ProductPartial.cshtml add grid on this partial view with model as below

@model List<Sample.Models.Product>

<div id="gridContent"  style=" padding:20px; " class="datagrid">

    var grid = new WebGrid(Model, defaultSort: "Name", rowsPerPage: 10, ajaxUpdateContainerId: "gridContent");

@grid.GetHtml(tableStyle: "table",mode: WebGridPagerModes.All,
        grid.Column("Name", format: @<text>@Html.ActionLink((string)item.Name, "Details", "Product", new { id = item.ID }, null)

        grid.Column("Price", header: "Product Price", format: @<text> @item.Price.ToString("0.00")</text>))


Step 3: Index page
On Index page add button “Show Product” and in onclick event open a dialog which will show a list of product. Here you can configure the structure of dialog (height, width, title)

    ViewBag.Title = "Index";
    Layout = "~/Views/Shared/PopupLayout.cshtml";

 <script type="text/javascript" >
     $(function () {
            autoOpen: false,
            width: 400,
            resizable: false,
            title: 'Product',
            modal: true,
            open: function(event, ui) {
                $(this).load("@Url.Action("ProductPartial", "Popup")");
            buttons: {
                "Close": function () {
         $("#opener").click(function () {
<h2> Index</h2>
<div id="dialog" title="Basic dialog" >Please wait</div>
<button id="opener">Show Product</button>
