In dxa, I created a custom area and created a Page with a single region and in that region, I want to render a component which is defined on the tridion site earlier. But on @Html.DxaEntities() I found the exception

Sdl.Web.Common.DxaException: No View Name specified in MVC Data. at Sdl.Web.Tridion.Mapping.DefaultModelBuilder.CreateMvcData(MvcData data, String defaultControllerName) in C:...\Sdl.Web.Tridion\Mapping\DefaultModelBuilder.cs:line 810 at Sdl.Web.Tridion.Mapping.DefaultModelBuilder.BuildEntityModel(EntityModel& entityModel, EntityModelData entityModelData, Type baseModelType, Localization localization) in C:\Rancher\workspace\stash\develop\net\build_webapp\Sdl.Web.Tridion\Mapping\DefaultModelBuilder.cs:line 171

Please suggest as I am new on dxa and tridion

Normally, the "MVC Data" for Entity Models representing Component Presentations is obtained from Component Template metadata.

If you're new to DXA and Tridion, I would recommend to install the DXA Example Publications and Example Web App (using the DXA Core Module) and have a look how things are configured there.
