    I am working on developing custom widgets using MVC 5 and VS 2015. I am using Sitefinity version 8.0.  I am referring the link below to create the basic MVC widget

    But I am not able to access my model in View and none of the @Html helper class functions are working in the view.

    Please do let me know what am I doing wrong? 

    Please be noted that I am using the same controller and Model as mentioned in the link

    Please let me know if VS 2015 can be used and is supported for Sitefinty development

    Often this occurs when the web.config file in your Views folder is missing (there are two in MVC projects by default: one at the root and one in the Views folder). Do you have this?
