    Rendering partial view in macro

    Hi kids.

    Is it possible to render a partial view in a macro? When I try

    @Html.Partial("_PARTIAL-ALIAS")
    

    I get this error "Cannot bind source type Umbraco.Web.Models.PartialViewMacroModel to model type Umbraco.Web.Models.RenderModel."

    @Umbraco.Field("_search-form")
    

    This doesn't render the content.

    Hi Gísli.

    The way you've written in you first code is correct, by writing Html.Partial(".."). The problem however is that if you are inside a macro partial view (which im suspecting), then that view is inheriting from PartialViewMacroModel and the partial view that you trying to include with a partial has a model of type RenderModel, usually because partial views created from the backoffice have this as the first line of code:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage
    

    How does your partial look? Can you paste in your code from the search-form partial? Do you need that partial to inherit from UmbracoTemplatePage? If not then remove that line. If yes, we can have a look at your code and see how to fix this.

    Take care!

    Thank you Dennis. I removed the @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage and that did the trick.

    mvh

    Also you can use Html.RenderPartial, and with this you don't need to remove @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage
