MVC5 Ajax form is not updating DIV but replacing the whole page instead

March 15, 2015 by Anuraj

.Net ASP.Net MVC HTML5 Javascript

While working on MVC5 application, I faced this issue, I was using Ajax.BeginForm() and from controller, I was returning content result. But instead of updating the DIV, the content was opened in new Tab. Initially I thought it was due to some javascript error, but it was not working with Ajax.ActionLink also. Later I found it was due to missing “Microsoft.jQuery.Unobtrusive.Ajax” package. You can install this via NuGet.
