MVC parameter returning null value

user5413 Published in September 19, 2018, 9:35 am

Below is the Controller code:

public class HomeController : Controller
    // GET: /Home/

    public string Index(string name)
        return "Welcome to MVC_Demo"+name;


and below is the Global.asax.cs codes:

public class MvcApplication : System.Web.HttpApplication
    public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)

            "Default", // Route name
            "{controller}/{action}/{id}", // URL with parameters
            new { controller = "Home", action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional } // Parameter defaults


    protected void Application_Start()


When I run the application and browse for (http://localhost/MVC_Demo/home/index/pradeep) it shows only, "Welcome to MVC_Demo" as the output, and not as "Welcome to MVC_Demo Pradeep" i.e the parameter name "Pradeep" is not getting displayed.

Considering me just a beginner any help would be highly appreciated.

    Because you method need to be public string Index(string id) so that you match your route (which expect a parameter named id). Or you need to create a specific route. – Stephen Muecke Apr 17 at 5:58
