View Partial View
It contains the layout page It does not contain the layout page
Before any view is rendered, viewstart page is rendered Partial view does not verify for a viewstart.cshtml. We cannot put common code for a partial view within the
View might have markup tags like body, html, head, title, meta etc. Partial view is designed specially to render within the view and just because of that it does not consist any mark up
View is not lightweight as compare to Partial View We can pass a regular view to the RenderPartial method

How to perform validation in MVC ?

one of the way to do validation in MVC using data annotations.
it is attributes whih can be applied to model peoperties.

See the below example.

public class Customer


    [Required(ErrorMessage="Customer code is required")]

    public string CustomerCode






In order to display the validation error message we need to use the ValidateMessageFor method which belongs to the Html helper class.

<% using (Html.BeginForm("PostCustomer", "Home", FormMethod.Post))

{ %>

<%=Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.CustomerCode)%>

<%=Html.ValidationMessageFor(m => m.CustomerCode)%>

<input type="submit" value="Submit customer data" />


How can we enable data annotation validation on client side?

It’s a two-step process: 
first reference the necessary jQuery files.

<script src="<%= Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery-1.5.1.js") %>" type="text/javascript"></script>

The second step is to call the EnableClientValidation method.

<% Html.EnableClientValidation(); %> 

How to use Jquery Plugins in ASP.Net MVC validation?

$('#CustomerName').rules("add", {

required: true,

minlength: 2,

messages: {

required: "Please enter name",

minlength: "Minimum length is 2"
