    Hi mahmoud_arafa,

    Firstly,make sure you rebuild your solution first. If you just added a new class, the scaffolding engine may not actually know about it, yet, if the project hasn't compiled.

    If that doesn't work, close Visual Studio and restart. 

    According to your error message,There may be a lot of details that cause this error.

    Maybe this due to the Controller scaffolding is not properly recognizing connection string in web.config file.

    In Web.config, check your providerName in connectionStrings and after creating controller, undo that!

    this solution from this link and this video.


    right clicking the controller action was to leave the "Data context class" field blank,like:

    If none of the above solves the problem,please post your model.

    Best Regards.
