Asp.net MVC -- System.Collections.Generic.List ERROR

Below worked until I changed it to access my "ViewModel" instead of the regular "Model".

Does anyone know how I can fix ?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List`1[MWR.Models.MAINT_WORK_REQ]', but this dictionary requires a model item of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List`1[MWR.Areas.__Testing.ViewModel.MainPageModel]'.

        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View(db.MAINT_WORK_REQ.ToList()); ¿-------------- change to MainPageModel so this LIST matches “index.cshtml” LIST ?
        }

Well, you database code doesn't return a MainPageModel, it returns an IEnumerable<MAINT_WORK_REQ>, which is what you are passing to the view. If you want to keep going with this view model, then you need to create a new instance of it in your controller and pass this new instance to the view.

However, your viewmodel doesn't have a property that can accept IEnumerable<MAINT_WORK_REQ>, so something needs to be reworked.

What is ListIEnumerable in "@model ListIEnumerable<MWR.Areas.__Testing.ViewModel.MainPageModel>"?

It is really just the below, but still fails with the same error.

@model List<MWR.Areas.__Testing.ViewModel.MainPageModel>

Below are the updates, but it still fails.

  Test #1, works = comment out Index.cshtml @foreach
  Test #2, fails = run with Index.cshtml @foreach statement

Does anyone know how I can fix ?

The Index.cshtml @foreach statement gives an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." ERROR.
