Hi,

You may use the overload that accepts htmlAttributes as a parm. You may check out this MSDN article.

In your case you could do it like (please note that the 'class' attribute must be preceded with a '@'):
@Html.TextBox("SearchString", ViewBag.CurrentFilter as String, new { @class = "" })

I have not added anything in the class, but you can populated with your bootstrap classes.
