ViewModel MVC 3

I am new to MVC. I am going through the following
tutorial.

I am on the portion where it calls for the following code

[HttpPost]
public ViewResult Edit(UserModel um)
{

if (!TryUpdateModel(um))
{
ViewModel.updateError = "Update Failure";
return View(um);
}

// ToDo: add persistent to DB.
_usrs.Update(um);
return View("Details", um);
}


When I attempt to use ViewModel I receive an error:

"The name ViewModel does not exist in the current context."

Intellisense does not show ViewModel as an option.

ViewModel does not exist for a mvc 3 controller. I think what you are looking to use instead is the following:

ViewBag.UpdateError = "Update Failure";

Then in your view:

@View.UpdateError
