The model instance to update.
prefix

The prefix to use when looking up values in the value provider.

You do not have to explicitly specify the generic parameter TModel. Instead, you can let the C# or Visual Basic type inference engine determine the generic parameter TModel by omitting the generic parameter. The [Overload:System.Web.Mvc.Controller.TryUpdateModel``1] method is like the [Overload:System.Web.Mvc.Controller.UpdateModel``1] method except that the [Overload:System.Web.Mvc.Controller.TryUpdateModel``1] method does not throw an InvalidOperationException exception if the updated model state is not valid.
