the name 'viewbag' does not exist in the current context RRS feed

  • Question

  • Anyone out there having this issue? I have VS2015 Ent and this is what is happening:

    I have already added references, checked dependencies, edited the web.config files in the views dir.

    I am really frustrated, the solution works in debugging mode IIS express, when I deploy it shows the message:

    "the name 'viewbag' does not exist in the current context"  and does not render the page. 

    PLEASE HELP!!! I am beginning to lose patience and really not liking these VS BS Issues!!

  • Hi SharePointJuiceMan10,

    May be the MVC version you have installed currently could be the issue. Verify you have latest version of MVC, it may be Beta or pre-release version or not. You must uninstall previous versions of MVC and install the newer version. Check this thread.

    By the way, Please consider posting ASP.NET related questions to
    You may get quicker and better responses there.

    Best Regards,
