Passing html from controller to view RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1396448631 posted

    I am passing the following ViewBag from controller to view

    ViewBag.Links = "<a href='www.google.com' target='_blank'>Google</a>. <a href='www.microsoft.com' target='_blank'>Microsoft</a>";

    In view I have the following


    When this view is rendered, it displays Google and Microsoft. However, the url it points to is relative, i.e.


    which opens a tab with 

    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    What should I do so that the link opens?

    You're missing the https.  The browser thinks the link is relative to the site.

    ViewBag.Links = "<a href='https://www.google.com' target='_blank'>Google</a>. <a href='https://www.microsoft.com' target='_blank'>Microsoft</a>";

    I would pass the a list of URLs and have the View wrap the URLs in HTML as that's what View and HTML helpers are designed to do.
