but this dictionary requires a model item of type

The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List`1[MobileWeb.Models.ProductDetailsModel]', but this dictionary requires a model item of type 'MobileWeb.Models.ProductDetailsModel'.

Keep receiving this error, I see the data when it reaches the return view but I get this error.

 public class ProductDetails
    {

        public List<ProductDetailsModel> data { get; set; }
    }
    public class ProductDetailsModel
    {
               
        public string datanumber { get; set; }
        public string name { get; set; }
        public string description { get; set; }
        public string number { get; set; }
        public float avg_price { get; set; }

    }

  Stream objStream;
                objStream = wrGETURL.GetResponse().GetResponseStream();
              
                StreamReader objReader = new StreamReader(objStream);

                string sLine = "";
                int i = 0;
                WebResponse response = wrGETURL.GetResponse();
                string contentType = response.ContentType;
                //while (sLine != null)
                //{
                //    i++;
                sLine = objReader.ReadLine();
                 JObject o = JObject.Parse(sLine);
             //    Console.WriteLine("description: " + o["description"]);
                 List<ProductDetailsModel> mydata = new List<ProductDetailsModel>()
                 {
                   new ProductDetailsModel { description = (o["description"]).ToString() }
                 };

                 return View(mydata.AsEnumerable());

I think you need to change your View to have this on top

@model IEnumerable<WebApplication1.Models.ProductDetailsModel>

Open in new window


It's probably like this now

@model WebApplication1.Models.ProductDetailsModel

Open in new window

Actually there is no need to convert to an enumerable if your code is changed as follows:
Controller: Returns the list, in fact you can use any object as parameter.
return View(mydata);

Open in new window

View: Define model using mydata type (List<ProductDetailsModel>) and access each item by iterating directly from model as shown below:
@model List<'MobileWeb.Models.ProductDetailsModel>
@* and property Model is type of List<ProductDetailsModel> *@
@foreach(var item in Model)
{
    <span>@item.name</span>
}

Open in new window

where "MobileWeb.Models" is current namespace where ProductDetailsModel is defined.  (Change it if this is not correct)

Note: Another alternative could be:
Controller Create a ProductDetails instance and return View(instance).
View: Define model as ProductDetails and when you need to access an item iterate  Model.data

Please be more specific, the posted line seems correct unless the following line set o as null. (JObject o = JObject.Parse(sLine);), thus this construct will fail: o["description"]).
IF that is the case you need to add conditional logic to avoid adding a new item to list.

ok I need a little help with that, I can do that from a database but I have the data with sLine

how can I return the data description with this list
 List<LookupTable> mydata = new List<LookupTable>()
                 {
                   new LookupTable { description = (o["description"]).ToString() }
                 };

Ok it was simple I just had to

var model = new context
                 {
                   description =(o["description"]).ToString()
                 };
