Show a partial view containing a form inside a dialog

I'm trying to show a form partial within a dialog without loading the form content via ajax.

Here's the dialog call: 

@Html.EJS().Dialog("Dialog").IsModal(true).OverlayClick("dlgOverlayClick").Header("Opération effectuée").Content(Html.Partial("~/Views/Shared/TestForm.cshtml").ToString()).Target("#dlg-container").ShowCloseIcon(true).Visible(false).Width("80%").Height("80%").Buttons(btn =>
            btn.Click("dlgBtnOkClick").ButtonModel(new { isPrimary = true, cssClass = "e-flat", content = "Ok" }).Add();
            btn.Click("dlgBtnCancelClick").ButtonModel(new { cssClass = "e-flat", content = "Cancel" }).Add();

And here's the form Partial:


    List<CrescendoPMS.Models.RoomType> roomsTypes = new List<CrescendoPMS.Models.RoomType>()
        new CrescendoPMS.Models.RoomType() {id = 1, name = "Single" },
        new CrescendoPMS.Models.RoomType() {id = 2, name = "Double" },
        new CrescendoPMS.Models.RoomType() {id = 3, name = "Twin" },
        new CrescendoPMS.Models.RoomType() {id = 4, name = "Triple" },
        new CrescendoPMS.Models.RoomType() {id = 5, name = "Suite" }


<div class="control-collection">
    <div class="control_wrapper accordion-control-section">
        @Html.EJS().TextBox("invoice_number").Placeholder("Invoice number").ShowClearButton(true).FloatLabelType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Inputs.FloatLabelType.Auto).Render()
        @Html.EJS().TextBox("invoice_ref").Placeholder("Invoice reference").ShowClearButton(true).FloatLabelType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Inputs.FloatLabelType.Auto).Render()
        @Html.EJS().DatePicker("invoice_date").Format("dd/MM/yyyy").Placeholder("Invoice date").Render()
        @Html.EJS().NumericTextBox("gross_te").Format("c").ShowSpinButton(false).Placeholder("Net amount tax exluded").Render()
        @Html.EJS().ComboBox("room_type").Placeholder("Room type").AllowFiltering(false).DataSource(roomsTypes).Fields(new Syncfusion.EJ2.DropDowns.ComboBoxFieldSettings { Text = "name", Value = "id" }).Render()


This is not working, and i'm having a syntax error saying that there's an incorrect token somewhere...

Thank you for your help

I finaly figured it out !
Here how i could do it:

@Html.EJS().Dialog("Dialog").IsModal(true).OverlayClick("dlgOverlayClick").Header("Opération effectuée").ContentTemplate(@<div>@Html.Partial("~/Views/Shared/TestForm.cshtml")</div>).Target("#dlg-container").ShowCloseIcon(true).Visible(false).Width("80%").Height("80%").Buttons(btn =>
       btn.Click("dlgBtnOkClick").ButtonModel(new { isPrimary = true, cssClass = "e-flat", content = "Ok" }).Add();
       btn.Click("dlgBtnCancelClick").ButtonModel(new { cssClass = "e-flat", content = "Cancel" }).Add();

All i had to do was wrap the @Html.Partial("...") in a @<div></div> in the ContentTemplate method !
Please tell me if this is good to go with or there is a recomended way to do it so i can mark the issue as resolved.

Thank you.
