Bootstrap & MVC - Select active link on 'Pills Navbar'

I used this approach to select the right 'pill' in the navigation:

<li @if (@ViewContext.RouteData.GetRequiredString("controller") == "Home") { @Html.AttributeEncode("class=active"); }><a href="/">Home</a></li>

If you call the GetRequiredString() method with the parameter "controller", it returns the current controller-name as string.

It seems a little hacky, but it's faster than to write an extension method or do the selection manually with javascript.
