Hello praveen1981

In MVC 2 in C# 3.5, try the attached code:

You can see that there is a model called TableData. In the controller, this model is created as a list and then passed into the 'Table' view. Inside the view, we loop through each of the TableData items and then render them into the HTML.

Notice though, the first line in the view:

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<IList<MvcApplication1.Models.TableData>>" %>

The view inherits an IList<MvcApplication1.Models.TableData> This is important as we want a list of TableData, rather than just a single item.

Thanks,

Richard Hughes
