I have a doubt that how can I pass the value from viewbag to view page. I am taking the value from table and passing to viewbag but in the view page it is not returning the data which I need

var t = db.Names.Where(r => r.ID == id).Select(i=> new { i.ID, i.FirstName });

in view page

@Html.Editor("name", new { htmlAttributes = new { @class = "form-control" } })

If I need the name as abc it is returning correctly in controller but is not showing in view page. the ID and Name are showing as ID and Name itself but how to pass this value to view page
how can I get the text value in editor field but internally it is storing as int that is the value. can somebody help me ??

What I have tried:

I have seach for the result but didn't get the perfect one

but when I give the code as you said it shows error that 'HtmlHelper<mapping>' has no applicable method named 'Editor' but appears to have an extension method by that name. Extension methods cannot be dynamically dispatched. Consider casting the dynamic arguments or calling the extension method without the extension method syntax.
why is this ?

That error usually appears when you forgot the parenthesis behind a method e.g.:
instead of
Check if you're using correct C# syntax and maybe have a look at the examples here:

Yes, look at your code: you assign the resut of a LINQ query to t (which contains of 2 fields: ID and Firstname). This NOT(!) a string but you handle it as a string the way you assign it to the Viewbag and how passing it to the editor. To show the Firstname, you should pass only that part of the LINQ result to the viewbag.
