Type Parameters


The type of the model object.


Type: TModel

The model instance to update.

Type: System.String

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

Type: System.String[]

A list of properties of the model to update.

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 it.

The TryUpdateModel method is like the UpdateModel method except that the TryUpdateModel method does not throw an InvalidOperationException exception if the updated model state is not valid.
