    Post requests to RenderMvcController?

    I have a custom routed RenderMvcController that lists out rows of a custom database table.

    If I want a form that creates a new record, it seems that because of how the RenderMvController is wired up to Umbraco.Web.Models.RenderModel which always wants an IPublishedContent instance, to use just a simple view model/DTO with validation attributes, etc seems complicated.

    The recommended approach instead seems to use a SurfaceController instead. So in essense I am splitting up GETs and POSTs between two controllers. (I know Surface controllers can render child actions too)

    Is this the correct way of doing this when using a custom controller, or am I missing something?

    Yep! That's the idea. Split them into two separate controllers :)

    Hi Mik

    You are right, for handling POST and GET requests use SurfaceController, also there is UmbracoApiController btw.

    Thanks,

    Alex
