Multiple Viewmodel addition and validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-118859203 posted

    Hi guys,

    I need to have 2 models in one view. The page contains both LoginViewModel and RegisterViewModel.

    public class LoginViewModel


    public string Email { get; set; }

    public string Password { get; set; }



    public class RegisterViewModel


    public string Name { get; set; }

    public string Email { get; set; }

    public string Password { get; set; }


    Should I use another ViewModel which holds these 2 ViewModels?


    public AdditionalViewModel


    public LoginViewModel LoginViewModel{get; set;}

    public RegisterViewModel RegisterViewModel {get; set;}


    I need the validation attributes to be brought forward to the view, this is why I need the ViewModels.

    Thanks for your help!

    Use a view model that contains multiple view models:

    namespace Project.Web.ViewModels
    public class UserViewModel
    public UserTT User { get; set; }
    public ProductTT Product { get; set; }
    public AddressTT Address { get; set; }
    In your view then you can access as:

    @model MyProject.Web.ViewModels.UserViewModel

    @Html.LabelFor(model => model.User.UserName)
    @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Product.ProductName)
    @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Address.StreetName)

    Hopefully, validation will no more problem as well. 

    Please mark as answer if it helps you. Thanks!
