I've been trying to learn about Razor, CSHTML, ASP.NET Web Pages, and WebMatrix.  I've been writing some examples specifically targetting HTML5 mobile apps.  After all, the best way to learn a technology is to dive into it.  I wanted to call some web services in a web page, so of course, I was going to use CSHTML.  I wrote some code that didn't need any parameters, that was pretty easy.  However, what do you do when you want to pass some parameters in.  There are two solutions I can think of:

- Pass the params in the QueryString, perform a GET operation, and request the items in the CSHTML file.  This is easy, simple, and makes sense.  You code would need to protect the entries that are passed in on the url, but hey, you already know how easy it is to change them.  So, this is what I am doing here.
- Pass the params in the Body, perform a POST operation, and request the items in the CSHTML file.  This takes a little more work, but I think its a better way to do things.

I decided to pass in a GET because I just needed to do something simple and get data.  I like REST principles, but I'm no zealot that things have to be done X way.  Here's my javascript client side code using jQuery and jQuery Mobile:

WhereIsUserNow() {
var UserToView = "@UserToView";
type: "GET",
url: "@Href("~")Services/MostRecent.cshtml?UserToView=" + UserToView,
dataType: "json",
contentType: "application/json",
success: function (outPut) {
error: function (xml, err) {
alert("err:" + xml.responseText);
else {
alert("Please select a user before trying this tab.");

And now here's my server side cshtml code:

    string UserName = Membership.GetUser().UserName; 
    string UserToView = Request.Params["UserToView"];
    //do a bunch of things.

Finally, my code will send json data out the client web browser.  Thankfully, it all seems to be working.  Probably need some added security somewhere, but who doesn't.
