MVC Label CSS question

Hello all,

What is the best way to handle dealing with css properties within MVC.  For example, I have a design template that has labels etc. that have a class defined such as this:

<label for="testlabel" class="control-label">Customer ID</label>

<input type="text" id="testtb"></input>

So the input I think I can just use a EditorFor or TextBoxFor.   What should I do with the labels?  Not sure if just leave it as they are or if true MVC I should be using something different.

Thanks

The EditorFor, TextBoxFor, and any other *For methods are just helper methods. Don't get too caught up in thinking that they are the embodiment of MVC. MVC is the architectural style regarding how your app is put together (the mdoels, views, and controllers). The helpers just make placing the HTML controls that would associated with various parts of your model a bit easier.

You can create a new anonymous object that has the attributes you would like to add to the label.

e.g.

@Html.LabelFor(modelItem => modelItem.Message, "Customer ID", new { @class = "control-label" })

Open in new window


...this is the new { @class = "control-label" } part in the above example. In this particular case, the "@" on "@class" is required since the keyword "class" is a reserved word in C#.
