Data get written out on page after jquery ajax call to method RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1122679459 posted

    I'm calling a method and passing an id to get a product in the form of xml. It's working fine but i'm writing out the results to the page which I don't want. I would like to work with the xml on the ajax success. Is there a better way of doing this?

    Method located in: Methods/getProduct.cshtml

            var itemID = Request["itemID"];
            string MY_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID = "00";
            string MY_AWS_SECRET_KEY = "00";
            string DESTINATION = "ecs.amazonaws.com";
            string ASSOCIATE_TAG = "0000-20";
            string NAMESPACE = "http://webservices.amazon.com/AWSECommerceService/2013-08-01";
            var helper = new AmazonProductAdvtApi.SignedRequestHelper(MY_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID, MY_AWS_SECRET_KEY, DESTINATION);
            var r1 = new Dictionary<string, String>();
            r1["Service"] = "AWSECommerceService";
            r1["Version"] = "2013-08-01";
            r1["Operation"] = "ItemLookup";
            r1["ItemId"] = itemID;
            r1["ResponseGroup"] = "Medium";
            r1["AssociateTag"] = ASSOCIATE_TAG;
            // Get the signed url
            var requestUrl = helper.Sign(r1);
            // Make the request
            var client = new WebClient();
            var xml = client.DownloadString(requestUrl);
        else {

    Jquery located in Product.cshtml

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            $("#formGetProduct").submit(function (e) {
            function request() {
                    type: "POST",
                    url: "Methods/getProduct",
                    data: "itemID=" + $("#productId").val(),
                    success: function (data) {

    You could probably do with reading this first: https://www.udemy.com/blog/jquery-xml/

    Two points: you should make sure the Response.ContentType in your getProduct file is set to application/xml, and you should use GET in your jquery instead of POST.
