Just try to make above codes working in MVC 3 razor but now alert an error.

Compiler Error Message: CS1928: 'System.Web.Mvc.HtmlHelper<SuretyNetwork.Controllers.SignUpModel>' does not contain a definition for 'LabelFor' and the best extension method overload 'System.Web.Mvc.Html.LabelExtensions.LabelFor<TModel,TValue>(System.Web.Mvc.HtmlHelper<TModel>, System.Linq.Expressions.Expression<System.Func<TModel,TValue>>, string)' has some invalid arguments

Hi,

You cannot define a class in a LabelFor helper. You may check the constructor of LabelFor here.

What you can do is not use the helper, and instead use plain Razor as:

<label for="@Model.email" class = "control-label">
    @Model.email
</label>

Open in new window


An other way would be defining your own helper. Some suggestions are here.
