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 https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb384936(v=vs.108).aspx or https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb383977(v=vs.108).aspx.

In addition to rendering a check box input element, this method renders a hidden input element so that an unselected check box will return false.

The difference between calling the CheckBox method and using an input element is that the CheckBox method is designed to make it easy to bind to view data or model data.
