You can use a TempDataDictionary object to pass data in the same way that you use a ViewDataDictionary object. However, the data in a TempDataDictionary object persists only from one request to the next, unless you mark one or more keys for retention by using the Keep method. If a key is marked for retention, the key is retained for the next request.

A typical use for a TempDataDictionary object is to pass data from an action method when it redirects to another action method. For example, an action method might store information about an error in the controller's TempData property (which returns a TempDataDictionary object) before it calls the RedirectToAction method. The next action method can then handle the error and render a view that displays an error message.
