    How do I render a strongly typed grid using mvc?

    I am trying to render a 'strongly-typed' grid in my mvc application but I am having trouble using GetGridHtml() when using @model in my view. Below is my work around for now but I'd like to keep everything in partial view if I can.


    public class NewsDetailViewModel
        public int NewsID { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public DateTime PublishedDate { get; set; }
        public NewsDetailViewModel(int newsId, string title, DateTime publishedDate)
            NewsID = newsId;
            Title = title;
            PublishedDate = publishedDate;

    Surface Controller

        public ActionResult RenderNewsDetail()
            var model = GetNewsDetailViewModel();
            return PartialView($"{PARTIAL_VIEW_FOLDER}_NewsDetail.cshtml", model);
        private NewsDetailViewModel GetNewsDetailViewModel()
            IPublishedContent newsDetail = CurrentPage.AncestorOrSelf("newsDetail");
            int newsID = newsDetail.Id;
            string title = newsDetail.Value<string>("title");
            var date = newsDetail.Value<DateTime>("publishedDate");
            NewsDetailViewModel model = new NewsDetailViewModel(newsID, title, date);
            return model;


    @inherits UmbracoViewPage
        Layout = "master.cshtml";
    @{ Html.RenderAction("RenderNewsDetail", "News");}
    <div class="main-content__body copy">
        @Html.GetGridHtml(Model, "content", "CustomGrid")


    @model Framework.UI.Models.NewsDetailViewModel
    @using Framework.UI.Models
    <div id="content">
