MVC Page List on Grid ... does not contain a definition for

I have the following code and I'm getting this error.

Compiler Error Message: CS1061: 'PagedList.IPagedList<MyAppPhoneListApplication.Models.MasterList>' does not contain a definition for 'FirstName' and no extension method 'FirstName' accepting a first argument of type 'PagedList.IPagedList<MyAppPhoneListApplication.Models.MasterList>' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)



So does this mean this is not declared correctly?

   <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.FirstName)
        </th>


I decided to use the page list PagedList.IPagedList instead of the *@model IEnumerable

@*@model IEnumerable<MyAppPhoneListApplication.Models.MasterList>*@

@model PagedList.IPagedList<MyAppPhoneListApplication.Models.MasterList>
@using PagedList.Mvc;

<link href="~/Content/PagedList.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

 



@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Tweddle Phone List Master";
}

<h2>Tweddle Phone List Master</h2>

@*@using (Html.BeginForm()) { 
    <p>

        Find by Last Name or First Name: @Html.TextBox("SearchString")
        Location: @Html.DropDownList("LocationList", "All")
        <input type="submit" value="Search" />

Your model is a collection of things, but you are trying to dump out the properties of the individual things in the collection. You need to loop over the model--since it is a collection--and then dump out the properties. You're actually already doing that (it would seem). Try commenting out lines 48 - 110. Everything that remains should be fine.

Why should I comment line 48-110, this will remove my header row... Does not work

I didn't look close enough at what that code was doing. It looked like a copy of the stuff below.

I'm not terribly fond of this approach, but you might try including a call to First in each header item:

e.g.

<table class="table">
    <tr>
        @*<th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().LastName)
        </th>*@


        <th>
            @Html.ActionLink("Last Name", "Index", new { sortOrder = ViewBag.NameSort })
        </th>
  
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().FirstName)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().Department)
        </th>
        
        
        
        @*<th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().Location)
        </th>*@
        
        
        <th>
            @Html.ActionLink("Location", "Index", new { sortOrder = ViewBag.LocationSort })
        </th>
  
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().ExtensionInternal)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().ExtensionDirectDial)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().NumberMobile)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().NumberHome)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().NumberTextMessage)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().NumberOther)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().Terminated)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().Shift)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().Notes)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().NameGrouping)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.First().LastUpdatedDT)
        </th>
        <th></th>
    </tr>

This will fail if there are no items in the collection, so you'll want to code defensively around that.

It does work now... But my drop down and search box doesn't work any more after implementing this solution? Yes I get a grid with all my result but they are no longer displayed in sort order by location and I can't do a search on the Name or by location on the drop down.


I get this type of error

  // GET: MasterLists
        public ActionResult Index(String sortOrder, string currentFilter, String LocationList, String SearchString, int? page )
        {


            //var pageIndex = (page ?? 1) - 1;
            //var pageSize = 10;
            //int totalUserCount;
                        
            //Added the page watch 
            ViewBag.CurrentSort = sortOrder;

            ViewBag.NameSort = String.IsNullOrEmpty(sortOrder) ? "Name_desc" : "";
            ViewBag.LocationSort = sortOrder == "Location" ? "Location_desc" : "Location";

            if (SearchString != null)
            {

             page = 1;
