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.

This method is typically used to display values from the object that is exposed by the Model property. For more information about the differences between this method and the other Display methods, see the DisplayExtensions class overview.

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.
