  1. Add a new empty MVC Controller Class called FormsController.cs to the project's Controllers folder.

  2. The new controller class should already contain an Index action method.

  3. Next, add a new folder called Forms inside the Views folder.

  4. Add a new MVC View Page, called Index.cshtml, to the newly created Forms folder.

  5. Add the following markup to the view:

            <div class="row"> 
                <div class="col-md-3"> 
                        <div class="card card-success" style="max-width: 20rem;"> 
                            <div class="card-header"> 
                                First Panel with simple form 
                            <div class="card-block">
