How to call or return partial view of another controller from one controller?

When working in ASP.NET MVC, I have a partial view located inside "Views -> FirstController->_PartialView1.cshtml", I would like to call this partial view of "FirstController" from "SecondController", how can I call it in ASP.NET MVC?

The reason I am doing so is the HTML used is same, but with different data.

This is not a recommended way, but you can call Another Controller partial view like below

   public PartialViewResult SomeActionName()
           //some code here
            return PartialView("~/Views/ControllerName/_PartialView.cshtml", YourModel);

or if PartialView in another Area

   public PartialViewResult SomeActionName()
           //some code here
            return PartialView("~/Areas/AreaName/Views/ControllerName/_PartialView.cshtml", YourModel);

Best Practice is call PartialView from inside the view using Render partial or Partial

Html.RenderPartial("~/Views/ControllerName/ViewName.cshtml", modeldata);

Or using 

@Html.Partial("~/Views/ControllerName/ViewName.cshtml", modeldata)

That's it.

Another best way is to place Partial View inside shared folder & call same partial View from different controller using Shared Folder.

So, basically you need to Create a Folder inside Views->Shared->SharePartialView ->_CommonPartialView.cshtml

And then call it from controller as mentioned above.

   public PartialViewResult SomeActionName()
           //some code here
           return PartialView("~/Views/Shared/SharePartalView/_CommonPartialView.cshtml");

That's it.

You can call HTML.Action also from the view.

@Html.Action("Action", "Controller", new {id =})

from the main view.


You can directly also use RenderPartial
