An action result represents a command that ASP.NET performs on behalf of an action method. The ViewResult class implements the abstract ViewResultBase class and is used to render a view. This class contains methods for finding the view to render and for executing the result. This class also contains properties that identify the view to render, the name of the view, the name of the master view, view data, temporary data, and a collection for view engines for the application.

If you want an action method to result in a rendered view, the action method should return a call to the controller's View helper method. The View helper method passes a ViewResult object to the ASP.NET MVC framework, which calls the object's ExecuteResult method.
