Types of HTML text boxes when using MVC with .Net

I have two different text boxes below. I am under the impression that they are both HTML text boxes. I am using Microsoft.net,
and MVC with C#.

I want to place these text boxes in a partial view. I have noticed that the <input type ...> text box when used as a partial view will be displayed in every .cshmtl page in the project, and the other text box type @Html will display in only the .cshtml page that uses the partial view. Which text box type is better, and why does one show on all of the .cshtml pages, and the other only on one?


  <div style="padding-left:19px; width:806px;">
        @Html.TextBox("PartialTextBox", "", new { style ="width: 100px;", id="partialBox" })

        <input type="text" name="customer" id="newCust" value="">
    </div>

Well essentially your @Html.Textbox is a helper method; I.E, a piece of Razor code which dynamically generates your HTML on the server and then puts it onto a cshtml file for you, the other piece of code you have is just bog standard HTML and works in precisely the same way, if you prefer the Syntax of a helper method then by all means go ahead with that, otherwise use raw HTML :)

As for why the plain HTML is on every single view and @html.Textbox is only present on your partial view presumably is down to the fact that MVC knows which namespace your helper method is in , and so it will render it as part of a partial view, it doesn't know what to do with your plain HTML so it just renders it.
