You can do this on the page, just google "mvc textboxfor set value".

However, the proper way to do this would be to set the default value on your model before you pass it to the view.

To expand a little. You should set the default value in the constructor of your model, then instantiate that model and pass it to the view. ie,

In your controller:
public ViewResult Create()
{
  // Loads default values
  MyModel m = new MyModel();
  return View("Create", m);
}

Open in new window


Hope this helps,
Dustin
