You may try following steps:
1. check namespace of entity data model & name of the class which inherits from ObjectContext class from
designer.cs file(inside youdatamodel.edmx)
2. add reference of you data model project in the project consisting of controllers(if required) & include the namespace in your controller
3. now u should be able to refer to data model class in your controller

If you are not able to refer the model from the AddControl dialog, then you need to rebuild the project. Sometimes the model doesn't show up.
In extreme cases, you need to close and open the visual studio.
(The above is true, is all other steps, like referencing dlls are done correctly.)

Did you create the template file?
Right click on the model’s designer surface. From the context menu, choose Add Code Generation Item. In the Add New Item dialog that opens, select Code from the list of installed templates types on the left.
Choose the ADO.NET DbContext Generator then click the Add button.
Hope this helpful
