How to create a normal listview with datasource in the ASP.NET MVC?

Platform: ASP.NET MVC |
Control: ListView(Mobile)
Tags: mobile, listview

You can refer to the following procedure to achieve this requirement.


Create Model

First, create model that contains texts field.


public class ListData
        public string texts { get; set; }
    public static class ListDataModal {
        public static List<ListData> listTempSource = new List<ListData>();
        public static List<ListData> setListDataSource()
            listTempSource.Add(new ListData { texts = "Discover Music" });
            listTempSource.Add(new ListData { texts = "Sales and Events" });
            listTempSource.Add(new ListData { texts = "Categories" });
            listTempSource.Add(new ListData { texts = "MP3 Albums" });
            listTempSource.Add(new ListData { texts = "More in Music" });
            return listTempSource;
        public static void clearSource()


Create Controller

Then, create controller and pass the datasource in the view.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Mvc;
using Sample.Models; // refers to models
namespace Sample.Controllers
    public class HomeController : Controller
        public ActionResult Index()
            ListDataModal.clearSource(); //Avoids duplication of listview items from the model
            return View(ListDataModal.setListDataSource().ToList());


Create View

Create view page to add the codes for rendering the listview by using the datasource created earlier.


@model List<ListData>
@*Creates listview with datasource*@
@Html.EJMobile().ListView("locallistview").ShowHeader(true).HeaderTitle("ListView with DataSource").DataSource(Model).FieldSettings(f => { f.Text("texts"); })
