  • Question

  • Does Razor Pages support the use of Display Templates? If so, would the DisplayTemplates folder go in Pages/Shared?

  • Yes, Razor Pages support Display Templates. Display Templates must be in a sub-folder that is named as DisplayTemplates under the Shared folder.

  • I am trying to create a display template for a SSN. The SSN is stored as a Varchar(9) in the database, which precludes me from simply using the DisplayFormat attribute. I have the DisplayTemplates folder under the Shared folder and I have created a file called SSN.cshtml, where I've placed the following code:

    @model PFDTrustDomain.Client

        @Model.SSN.Insert(2, "-").Insert(5, "-");

    In the .cshtml file I use  @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.SSN)  to display the SSN, but the display mask that I am trying to create in the display template is not taking effect. Any insight into what I am missing would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi RavenCohoSalome,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, I have a question to confirm with you.

    What's the type of your application? ASP.NET MVC? ASP.NET Core MVC?

    Besides, I have found a reference, and you can refer it.
