Specifying what area an ActionLink should use

Using routevalues you can tell the html helper what area you want to create a action link to.

//create a link that will go to AreaName
Html.ActionLink("Link Text", "ActionName", "ControllerName", new { Area = "AreaName" }, new{})
//Default area (= no area)
Html.ActionLink("Link Text", "ActionName", "ControllerName", new { Area = "" }, new{})
 
//create a link that will go to AreaName and with some htmlAttributes
Html.ActionLink("Link Text", "ActionName", "ControllerName", new { Area = "AreaName" }, new{@class="myCssClass"})
 
 
//Definition
public static MvcHtmlString ActionLink(
	string linkText,
	string actionName,
	string controllerName,
	RouteValueDictionary routeValues,
	IDictionary<string, Object> htmlAttributes
)
