ASP.NET MVC Model Binding
Model binding is a process in which we bind a model to controller and view. It is a simple way to map posted form values to a .NET Framework type and pass the type to an action method as a parameter. It acts as a converter because it can convert HTTP requests into objects that are passed to an action method.
Here, we are creating an example, in which a simple model is binding with the view and controller. We are creating a Student model that has some properties. These properties will be used to create form fields.

Right click on the Model folder and add a class to create new model.

Creating a View

After adding, it generates an index file within the Students folder that contains the following code.
When the Index file is executed it produces the following output.
