Asp.net-mvc – Injecting content into specific sections from a partial view ASP.NET MVC 3 with Razor View Engine

asp.netasp.net-mvcasp.net-mvc-3partial-viewsrazor

I have this section defined in my _Layout.cshtml

@RenderSection("Scripts", false)

I can easily use it from a view:

@section Scripts { 
    @*Stuff comes here*@
}

What I'm struggling with is how to get some content injected inside this section from a partial view.

Let's assume this is my view page:

@section Scripts { 

    <script>
        //code comes here
    </script>
}

<div>
    poo bar poo
</div>

<div>
  @Html.Partial("_myPartial")
</div>

I need to inject some content inside the Scripts section from _myPartial partial view.

How can I do this?

Sections don't work in partial views and that's by design. You may use some custom helpers to achieve similar behavior, but honestly it's the view's responsibility to include the necessary scripts, not the partial's responsibility. I would recommend using the @scripts section of the main view to do that and not have the partials worry about scripts.
