    Cannot use property Model in view models

    Hi guys,

    I'm finally working on an Umbraco 7 project (hooray!) but just spend some time investigating a surface controller for which the model went missing after HTTP POST. In the controller action the view model returned would always be NULL:

        public ActionResult HandleFormSubmit(PublicationFormViewModel model)

    After tripple-checking my setup everything seemed to be in place so I started removing some fields from the form in the view, and it turns out a property named "Model" of type int is the culprit:

    public class PublicationFormViewModel
        public int Model { get; set; }

    Once I renamed this property, the view model is passed to the controller correctly after post.

    So I was wondering, is this some kind of built-in property used by ASP.NET MVC or Umbraco?

    Thanks Lennart
