JScript does not support generic types and methods.

Type Parameters

  • TModel
    The type of the model object.


  • 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: array<System.String[]

    A list of properties of the model to update.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the update is successful; otherwise, false.


Exception Condition

The model parameter or the ValueProvider property is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


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.
