MVC2 - Ghost Model Error

My Model:

public class EntryModel
        public string Date { get; set; }

        public string Car { get; set; }

        public string Engine { get; set; }

        public string User { get; set; }

        public int CarCod { get; set; }
        public int EngineCod { get; set; }


My View:

<%=Html.Text("Car", car,new { @class = js_car")%>
<%=Html.ValidationMessageFor(x=>x.Car) %>
<%=Html.TextBox("CarCod", carCod, new { @class = "js_car", @style = "display:none;",@id="_car_cod" })%>

My Problem:

When posting the data, "CarCod" always fires an error at the ModelState, thus rendering both ModelState.IsValid and Html.ValidationSummary useless.

I already have workarounds for this (i.e not using them), but it would be very nice to know why.


To go off of what Garret said, make CarCod and EngineCod nullable.

It looks like you're hiding the CarCod textbox so it will be submitted with an empty string. The Model expects it to be an int so it's having problems converting that to an integer. What happens if you set the value to "0"?
