TModel

The type of the model object.

Parameters

model
Type: TModel
The model instance to update.
prefix
Type: System.String
The prefix to use when looking up values in the value provider.
includeProperties
Type: System.String()
A list of properties of the model to update.
valueProvider
Type: System.Web.Mvc.IValueProvider

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 [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.
