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 Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

The htmlFieldId parameter is used with HTML input when two properties in the model have the same name. In order to bind two properties that have the same name, the htmlFieldId parameter is used to specify the binding parameter name for each property.
