    I just added some MVC Views and Controllers to my Sitefinity Web Application project which uses the ViewBag element, but when I attempt to access any of these pages, I receive the following error message:

    Compiler Error Message: CS0103: The name 'ViewBag' does not exist in the current context

    How do I get the ViewBag element to render correctly within my Sitefinity MVC Views and Controllers?

    Please advise.

    Define ViewBag value in the controller method action

    public ActionResult Index()
              var model = new ViewBagTestModel();
              if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.Message))
                  model.Message = "Hello, World!";
                  ViewBag.Test = "This is text form Viewbag";

    and in the view call ViewBag with its key for access in my case its "Test";
