  3. Using Html.BeginForm() by passing FormMethod View To Controller Method 3

Step 6

Create a HTML form element and define input controls inside the form element and set post method.

Step 7

Valueprovider gets or sets the value provider for the controller. Getvalue retrieves a value object using the specified key and key is of the value object to retrieve. Attemptedvalue gets or sets a rawvalue that is converted to a string for display. You can use ValueProvider.GetValue(“key”).RawValue but we need to consider that it is not always a string.
