MVC 4: Several Models in one Model causing an error

Posted on 2013-06-12
Last Modified: 2013-06-12
I have several Models defined such as RescueFormsAdministration.Models.Account that I have given the name AccountModel and a wrapper Model RescueFormsAdministration.Models.CreateAccountViewModel that contains the Account and other Models in order to pass it to one View. This works until I run it and then I get the error below:
"The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'RescueFormsAdministration.Models.Account', but this dictionary requires a model item of type 'RescueFormsAdministration.Models.CreateAccountViewModel'. "

Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

I found my own answer:

I made to modify the AccountController, it was:

        public ActionResult Create(Account account)
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
                return RedirectToAction("Index");  

            return View(account);

After I modified it to the below, it worked.

        public ActionResult Create(CreateAccountViewModel CreateAccount)
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
                return RedirectToAction("Index");  

            return View(CreateAccount);
