Model binding is the process of creating .NET objects using the data sent by the browser in an HTTP request. I have been relying on the model binding process each time I have defined an action method that takes a parameter. The parameter objects are created through model binding from the data in the request. In this chapter, I'll show you how the model binding system works and demonstrate the techniques required to customize it for advanced use. Table 24-1 provides the summary for this chapter.
