Returns CheckBox Input element using Html.CheckBox() Handler: MVC

Html.CheckBox() handler, used to return check box input element to be input true or false value by user. Selected checkbox will return true and un-selected will return false, otherwise it returns null for the programmer to store/use the value.

In compare to other input element, this handler is easy to bind to with the data source provided by the programmer for the page. This handler/method have its own parameters list as Html.Label() or Html.TextBox() handlers have.


  • Name: specifies the name of form field. It is string type of parameter.
  • isChecked: programmer should pass true to select the checkbox, otherwise false. As the name implies it is Boolean type of parameter.
  • htmlAttributes: specifies an object that contains all the html attributes to set for the element as discussed earlier.
@Html.CheckBox("isMarried", true);

This line will return an check box input element on the page with checked true value, as passed with the method. The name of form field will be isMarried, used to get the value of this element.


This handler works same as above but for a particular property in the object specified in the expression. This handler is used to return check box input for only the bind to property exists in the mode passed by an action to this view page.

Parameters are almost same except the expression which is a predicate to be bind this element with the specific property.

Let’s suppose this view page is bind to a model of type student having the properties like name, age, isMarried and etc. To bind this check box handler programmer have to write the following line of code:

@Html.CheckBoxFor(model => model.isMarried, false)

This handler now binds to isMarried property of the model and by default it will be un-selected on the page.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
