Etienne Giust's .NET notes Some .NET tips and tricks for me to remember. That might help you too


I’m using ASP.NET MVC 3.

I was used to rely on filterContext.RouteData.Values to get parameters from the url


var idEdited = filterContext.RouteData.Values["id"];


This works fine as long as the url does not have specific parameters, like here:


However, when the parameter is not a routevalue anymore, like in the example below, then you would get a OfficeId= null when using the previous method :

When you are in that case, there is a way to get both the route value “id” and the parameter “OfficeId” using the ValueProvider  :


var idEdited = filterContext.Controller.ValueProvider.GetValue("id").AttemptedValue;

var idEditedOffice = filterContext.Controller.ValueProvider.GetValue("OfficeId").AttemptedValue;


The ValueProvider will search into route values and url parameters (also in POST parameters, apparently).
