How to create a single thanks page for entire controller in MVC

Sometimes we need a thanks page say we have user registration, change password, activate account functionality in our application then we need a thanks page after registering with our site, to say thanks for registering with us or showing confirmation that your password is successfully changed or your account is successfully activated. So do you think we need three different view for these confirmation page, no need to create three different page, simply we can create a single thanks page and it will server not only for these three confirmation page but for entire application. So how to change the title, and message for different pages, let’s create a model to pass data and render from this model

public class ThanksModel
{
    public string PageTitle { get; set; }
    public string Message { get; set; }
    public bool IsSuccess { get; set; }        
}

Now let’s create a strongly typed view and name it Thanks

@model AdvanceSharp.Webapp.Models.ThanksModel
@{
   ViewBag.Title = @Model.PageTitle;
   Layout = "~/Views/Shared/layout.cshtml";
}

<h2>@Model.PageTitle</h2>
<div style="min-height: 300px;">
  @if(Model.IsSuccess){
    <p>
      @MvcHtmlString.Create(@Model.Message)
    </p>
  }
  else{
    <p style="color:Red">
         @MvcHtmlString.Create(@Model.Message)
   </p>
  }

We use @MvcHtmlString.Create to render the message so we can pass message in HTML format as well.

Let's see how to use this view, from different controller methods

[HttpPost]
public ActionResult Register(RegistrationModel register)
{
   //Code to save detail in detabase
   return View("Thanks", 
      new ThanksModel { PageTitle = "Registeration",
       Message = "<div>Thanks for registering with us</div>", 
       IsSuccess = true });
}

As you can see we are returning a different view, so the URL will be the same and content will be from thanks view, which we are rendering dynamically by using ThanksModel.

No need to create controller method, as you see we never created it.

As we used for Registration similarly we can use it from any controller method.
