I am building a new MVC Application.  I added a new page and a new controller.  When I go to the new page, I get the following error: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Do you know how to fix this error?

Thanks,

Dan

That's a bit too vague to be able to answer straight off the bat.  Firstly, can you tell if your controller is being hit or not? Put a break point on whatever action is being called by default and see if it is hit when you run your project.

A bit more detail about your controller, view and what both are doing would be helpful.

Yes, I am hitting the controller.  I set a break point in the controller and it is hitting the ActionResult Index().

I wrote a basic Controller and a Basic view with the view returning to the controller.

I Wrote a basic Controller:
using System.Web.Configuration;
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace BCA.GunPermit.Controllers
{
    public class GunPermitSearchController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View();
        }
    }
}

Open in new window


View:
@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Search";
}

<h2>Search Test</h2>

<br />

<div class="gun-permit-search">
    <div id="search-purpose-code" class="well well-sm">


    </div>
</div>

Open in new window

What is your view called?  Is it called "Search", or is it called "Index"?

That's your problem then.  If you return View() then the view needs to have the same name as the action (i.e. Index in your case).  Or, alternatively, you can pass the name of the view if it is different to the action name:
public ActionResult Index()
{
    return View("Search");
}
