As far as I know, the "
UpdateModel" method is designed to do this. Something like this should work, but I haven't tested it:
public ActionResult Edit(Entity entity)
var entityInDbSet = _context.Set.SingleOrDefault(x => x.Id == entity.Id);
There's also an overload that lets you specify a list of the properties to update. This is recommended for security reasons, so users can't update properties they shouldn't be allowed to update. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd492193.aspx[^] for more information. :)
