MVC model=>model

Hi Expert,

I like to Create a new record in create view on person table.

I got error in Create.aspx

<%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.PersonID)%>

CS1061: 'MvcApplication2.Models.SchoolEntities' does not contain a definition for 'PersonID'

I attached other pages.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

The inherits directive you have defined in the very first line of your page dictates that your page expects a model of StudentEntities type.

So you must either change that to Person.

You may also show us your StudentEntities definition.

Hi,

In order to help you with this, i would like some more info.

1.What is the model you are using in the Create.aspx (i know it is implied you are using Person model, but i want to see what you have.

2.Can you please post your Person model definition?

Based on the code you've shown you're not passing a model to your View (i.e. return View()), so it makes sense that the view wouldn't have any idea what is in the model because there isn't one.

If you're going to render things from the model you need to create a strongly-typed view.

return View( new Person() );

You're using the WebForms view engine so I don't know what the correct syntax is, but you then need to declare your model in the view. In Razor you'd do.

@model Person

You'll need to figure out how to do that in WebForms.

I would strongly recommend you do a tutorial on MVC before you get too much farther into this development project. These are pretty fundamental questions and concepts and if you don't get a good foundation in them early you're going to have nothing but trouble later on. This would be a good starting point.

I need to add that it seems that your page expects a SchoolEntities model, while you are using a Person model.

jyparask: Where is Person model definition?

I attached screen shot for Person model properties.


CraigWagner:

I followed the online Tutorial, because my visual studio is 2010, so I used MVC2 and only change Movie table to Person table I already had

http://www.asp.net/mvc/tutorials/older-versions/getting-started-with-mvc/getting-started-with-mvc-part6

return View( new Person() ); in screen shot page1.


thanks.

I need to see what is on top of your Create.cshtml

So either scroll to the top of it and take a screenshot or better copy the whole code of this page and paste it in your post. Then please mark all the code in you post before submitting and then hit the code button from the tools in the post editor.

Then your code will look like this and will help us help you.
