Self Closing Tag

Oct 1, 2010 at 5:06 PM

The helper generates non-self closing tag like

 <%= Html.Html5TextBoxFor(m => m.UserName,InputTypes.InputType.Text) %>

<input id="UserName" name="UserName" placeholder="User Name" type="Text" value=""></input>

which does not pass W3C validation.

So I modified InputTypes.cs Html5TextBox method  to return

return MvcHtmlString.Create(builder.ToString(TagRenderMode.SelfClosing));  

and InputHelper method

  if (inputType == InputType.Text)
                return MvcHtmlString.Create(builder.ToString(TagRenderMode.SelfClosing));
            return builder.ToHtmlString();

Hi Haria

I will get this addition in as soon as possible. Thanks for the advice!

Hi Dean,

Is there any chance of getting Haria's change into the nuget build soon? Thanks!

Hi Derek

The fix has been added and the lastest package is available on Nuget.
