Namespace:  System.Web.Mvc.Html
Assembly:  System.Web.Mvc (in System.Web.Mvc.dll)

	this HtmlHelper htmlHelper,

)

htmlAttributes

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Mvc.MvcHtmlString
An input element whose type attribute is set to "password".

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type HtmlHelper. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see b8020aae-374d-46a9-bcb7-8cc2390b93b6 or 175ce3ff-9bbf-4e64-8421-faeb81a0bb51.

Unlike other input extension methods, the Password method does not repopulate its value from the ModelState object.

The htmlAttributes parameter consists of an object that contains name/value pairs. The attributes that are specified in the name/value pairs depend on the HTML element that is being rendered. For example, for an input element where type is set to "password", you might provide the following anonymous object:

new { id = "password1", maxlength="20", size="15" }
