Surface controller actions

    A surface controller can return a few Umbraco specific actions.

    CurrentUmbracoPage

    Returns the current Umbraco page.

    namespace TestWebsite.Core.Controllers
    {
        public class TestSurfaceController : SurfaceController
        {
            [HttpPost]
            public ActionResult PostMethod()
            {
                if (!ModelState.IsValid)
                {
                    return this.CurrentUmbracoPage();
                }
    
                return this.RedirectToCurrentUmbracoPage();
            }
        }
    }
    

    RedirectToCurrentUmbracoPage

    Redirects to the currently rendered Umbraco page.

    namespace TestWebsite.Core.Controllers
    {
        public class TestSurfaceController : SurfaceController
        {
            [HttpPost]
            public ActionResult PostMethod()
            {
                if (!ModelState.IsValid)
                {
                    return this.CurrentUmbracoPage();
                }
    
                return this.RedirectToCurrentUmbracoPage();
            }
        }
    }
    

    This action can also take in a string value for a querystring parameter in the url or a NameValueCollection for multiple querystring parameters in the url.

    Querystring parameter using a string value

    namespace TestWebsite.Core.Controllers
    {
        public class TestSurfaceController : SurfaceController
        {
            [HttpPost]
            public ActionResult PostMethod()
            {
                var paramValue = "someValue";
                return this.RedirectToCurrentUmbracoPage("param=" + paramValue);
            }
        }
    }
    

    Querystring parameter using a NameValueCollection

    namespace TestWebsite.Core.Controllers
    {
        public class TestSurfaceController : SurfaceController
        {
           [HttpPost]
            public ActionResult PostMethod()
            {
                var queryStringCollection = new NameValueCollection();
                queryStringCollection.Add("param1", "paramvalue1");
                queryStringCollection.Add("param2", "paramvalue2");
                return this.RedirectToCurrentUmbracoPage(queryStringCollection);
            }
        }
    }
    

    RedirectToCurrentUmbracoUrl

    Redirects to the currently rendered Umbraco url.

    namespace TestWebsite.Core.Controllers
    {
        public class TestSurfaceController : SurfaceController
        {
            [HttpPost]
            public ActionResult PostMethod()
            {
                return this.RedirectToCurrentUmbracoUrl();
            }
        }
    }
    

    RedirectToUmbracoPage

    Redirects to a given Umbraco page.

    namespace TestWebsite.Core.Controllers
    {
        public class TestSurfaceController : SurfaceController
        {
            [HttpPost]
            public ActionResult PostMethod()
            {
                //gets the first child page of the current page
                var childPage = CurrentPage.FirstChild();
                return this.RedirectToUmbracoPage(childPage);
            }
        }
    }
    

    You can also redirect to a page id.

    namespace TestWebsite.Core.Controllers
    {
        public class TestSurfaceController : SurfaceController
        {
            [HttpPost]
            public ActionResult PostMethod()
            {
                //redirect to a page with id 1054
                return this.RedirectToUmbracoPage(1054);
            }
        }
    }
    

    There are overloads for adding a string querystring parameter or a NameValueCollection for multiple querystring parameters.
