  2.     ViewBag.Title = "Render Partial View As Modal Popup Using AJAX call with JSON";  
  3.     Layout = "~/Views/Shared/_Layout.cshtml";  
  4. }  
  5. @section scripts { < script > var ajaxCallURL = '/Employee/EmployeePartial';  
  6.     $(function()  
  7.       {  
  8.         $(".getAllEMP").click(function()  
  9.          {  
  10.             var $buttonClicked = $(this);  
  11.             var options = {  
  12.                 "backdrop""static",  
  13.                 keyboard: true  
  14.             };  
  15.             $.ajax({  
  16.                 type: "GET",  
  17.                 url: ajaxCallURL,  
  18.                 contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",  
  19.                 datatype: "json",  
  20.                 success: function(data)  
  21.                 {  
  22.                     debugger;  
  23.                     $('#myModalContent').html(data);  
  24.                     $('#myModal').modal(options);  
  25.                     $('#myModal').modal('show');  
  26.                 },  
  27.                 error: function() {  
  28.                     alert("Content load failed.");  
  29.                 }  
  30.             });  
  31.         });  
  32.         $("#closbtn").click(function()  
  33.         {  
  34.             debugger;  
  35.             $('#myModal').modal('hide');  
  36.         });  
  37.     }); < /script>  
  38. } < table style = "background-color:orange; width:100%; border:solid5pxgreen; padding:20px;" > < tr > < td align = "center"  
  39. style = "padding:20px;" > < ahref = "javascript:void(0);"  
  40. class = "getAllEMP"  
  41. style = "font-size:20pt;" > Get All Employee Information < /a> < /td> < /tr> < /table> < divid = 'myModal'  
  42. class = 'modal'  
  43. style = "text-align:right; " > < divclass = "modal-dialog"  
  44. style = "width:900px; height:400px; padding:10px;" > < divclass = "modal-content"  
  45. style = "overflow: auto; padding:10px; background-color:#d2f5f4;" > < button type = "button"  
  46. id = "closbtn" > x < /button> < divstyle = "height:10px;" > < /div> < div id = 'myModalContent'  
  47. style = "width:850px; height:400px; padding:10px;" > < /div> < /div> < /div> < /div>  
Now add the following code to your EmployeeController,

EmployeeController
  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  3. using System.Linq;  
  4. using System.Web;  
  5. using System.Web.Mvc;  
  6. namespace MVC_WebGrid_PartialView_ModalPopup.Controllers  
  7. {  
  8.     public class EmployeeController: Controller  
  9.     {  
  10.         CompanyDBEntities db = new CompanyDBEntities();  
  11.         // GET: Employee  
  12.         public ActionResult Index()   
  13.         {  
  14.             return View();  
  15.         }  
  16.         public ActionResultEmployeePartial()  
  17.         {  
  18.             List < Emp_Information > model = db.Emp_Information.ToList();  
  19.             return PartialView("_EmpPartial", model);  
  20.         }  
  21.     }  
  22. }  
Now Add a partial view inside Views, then Employee Folder,

view

In _EmpPartial.cshtml write the following code: 
  1. @model List < MVC_WebGrid_PartialView_ModalPopup.Emp_Information > @  
  2.   {  
  3.         //var grid = new WebGrid(Model, defaultSort: "Name", rowsPerPage: 10, ajaxUpdateContainerId: "gridContent");  
  4.         var grid = newWebGrid(source: Model, canPage: true, rowsPerPage: 10, ajaxUpdateContainerId: "gridContent");  
  5.         grid.Pager(WebGridPagerModes.All);  
  6.     } < styletype = "text/css" > .webgrid - table  
  7.     {  
  8.         font - family: "Trebuchet MS", Arial, Helvetica, sans - serif;  
  9.         font - size: 1.2e m;  
  10.         width: 100 % ;  
  11.         display: table;  
  12.         border - collapse: separate;  
  13.         border: solid1px# ff6a00;  
  14.         background - color: white;  
  15.     }.webgrid - tabletd, th  
  16.     {  
  17.         border: 1 pxsolid# ff6a00;  
  18.         padding: 3 px7px2px;  
  19.         text - align: left;  
  20.     }.webgrid - header {  
  21.         background - color: #ff6a00;  
  22.         color: #ffffff;  
  23.         padding - bottom: 4 px;  
  24.         padding - top: 5 px;  
  25.         text - align: left;  
  26.     }.webgrid - footer {}.webgrid - row - style  
  27.     {  
  28.         padding: 3 px7px2px;  
  29.     }.webgrid - alternating - row {  
  30.         background - color: #00ffff;  
  31. padding: 3px7px2px;  
  32. }  
  33. </style>  
  34. <div id= "gridContent" >   
  35. @grid.GetHtml  
  36. (  
  37.   tableStyle: "webgrid-table",   
  38.   headerStyle: "webgrid-header",   
  39.   footerStyle: "webgrid-footer",   
  40.   alternatingRowStyle: "webgrid-alternating-row",   
  41.   rowStyle: "webgrid-row-style",   
  42.  columns: grid.Columns  
  43. (  
  44. grid.Column  
  45. (  
  46. header: "No.",   
  47. format: @   
  48. < text >   
  49. < div >   
  50. @(item.WebGrid.Rows.IndexOf(item) + 1)   
  51. < /div></text >   
  52. ),   
  53. grid.Column  
  54. (  
  55. columnName: "EMP_ID", header: "EMPLOYEE ID"  
  56. ),   
  57. grid.Column  
  58. (header: "Name", format:   
  59. @ < text > < a href = "#" > @item.Name < /a></text > ),   
  60. grid.Column(columnName: "ManagerName", header: "ManagerName"),   
  61. grid.Column(columnName: "ProjectName", header: "ProjectName"),   
  62. grid.Column(columnName: "City", header: "City")))   
  63. < /div>  
In Route.config set startup controller and action method like below:

config

  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  3. using System.Linq;  
  4. using System.Web;  
  5. using System.Web.Mvc;  
  6. using System.Web.Routing;  
  7. namespace MVC_WebGrid_PartialView_ModalPopup  
  8. {  
  9.     
  10.     public class RouteConfig  
  11.     {  
  12.         public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)  
  13.         {  
  14.             routes.IgnoreRoute("{resource}.axd/{*pathInfo}");  
  15.             routes.MapRoute(name: "Default", url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}", defaults: new  
  16.             {  
  17.                 controller = "Employee",  
  18.                     action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional  
  19.             });  
  20.         }  
  21.     }
