How can I fix the below "item.LastName" so it displays ?
Everything else works.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@model IEnumerable<MWR.Models.UserProfile>
@using MWR.Data;
@using MWR.Models;

@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Delete";
}

<h2>Create / Delete Users</h2>
<h6>@Html.ActionLink("Admin Home", "Index", new {})</h6>
<h6>@Html.ActionLink("Create User", "Register", "Account") </h6>

@using (Html.BeginForm("Users", "UserRole"))
{
   
    <table>
        <tr>

            <th></th>
            <th>User Name</th>


        </tr>

        @foreach (var item in Model)
        {
            <tr>
                <td>
                    <input type="checkbox"  name="ids" value="@item.UserId"  />
                </td>
                <td>
                    @Html.HiddenFor(userId => item.UserId)
                    @Html.ActionLink(@item.UserName, "GetRolesbyUser", new { id=item.UserId })
                </td>
                <td>
                    @Html.DisplayFor(userId => item.UserId)
                    @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.LastName) -- this line displays BLANK, but has database values
                </td>
            </tr>
        }

    </table>
    <input type="submit" id="btnUpdate" value="Delete" />
}

Is the "UserProfile" model an entity and when you debug the line (yes you can debug a view), do you see a value? Maybe it is not set in your viewmodel?

How can I fix since the userProfile table is NOT in
Model1.edmx and should display all FIELDS correctly ?

"@foreach (var item in Model)" shows that all 28 "Model" records have BLANK FirstName/LastName.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AccountModels.cs has the fields below, which are in my database.

    [Table("UserProfile")]
    public class UserProfile
    {
        [Key]
        [DatabaseGeneratedAttribute(DatabaseGeneratedOption.Identity)]
        public int UserId { get; set; }
        public string UserName { get; set; }
        public string FirstName { get; set; }
        public string LastName { get; set; }
        public string Email { get; set; }
        public Int64 Badge { get; set; }
    }

Is the UserProfile class filled by a certain method or should be done by the EF code-first?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

UserProfile class is the STANDARD method that gets automatically created when you do a new MVC4 ASP.net app

I'm trying to get some things straight.
You say you have created an MVC app with EF code-first AND you have a "Model1.edmx"?

When I create a new MVC 4 project, I don't have FirstName and LastName.
[Table("UserProfile")]
    public class UserProfile
    {
        [Key]
        [DatabaseGeneratedAttribute(DatabaseGeneratedOption.Identity)]
        public int UserId { get; set; }
        public string UserName { get; set; }
    }

Open in new window


So you probably added those later in the UserProfile table.
Is it using the same database?
And what's inside Model1.edmx?

Correct, I added these two fields to my UserProfile table and classes later.

Model1.edmx only has my non-USER-related tables (i.e. CUSTOMER ORDERS, etc)

Sorry for my late response, I was trying to reproduce the issue on my work but I don't have the correct sql version. So now from home I took a look at it.

But I am unable to reproduce it.

I did the following:
- Create a new MVC4 internet project in VS2012
- Register an account
- Add column "FirstName" in the table UserProfile using SQL.
- Fill the column with information so we have data for "FirstName"
- Add a property "FirstName" and added this to the "UserProfile" class
- Finally modify the Index.cshtml view for displaying the "First Name".  
      Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.FirstName)

Can you check if you did thesame or maybe more/less?

I needed to change my below http://localhost/UserRole/Users 
"dataDB.getAllUserProfiles();" method to return FirstName/etc
and it works now.
------------------------------------------------------------

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Mvc;
using MWR.Models;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using MWR.Data;

namespace MWR.Controllers
{
    public class UserRoleController : Controller
    {

        string result = string.Empty;
        UserProfile userProfile = null;
        UserRoleModel userRoleModel = null;
        List<UserRoleModel> listUserRole = new List<UserRoleModel>();

        List<UserProfile> listUserProfile = new List<UserProfile>();
        dataDB dataDB = new dataDB();


        public ActionResult Users()
        {
            listUserProfile = dataDB.getAllUserProfiles();
            if (listUserProfile.Count() > 0)
                return View(listUserProfile);
            else
                return View();

        }



    }
}
