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.
  • excludeProperties
    Type: array<System.String[]
    A list of properties to explicitly exclude from the update. These are excluded even if they are listed in the includeProperties parameter list.


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.
