Returns Password input element using Html.Password() Handler: MVC

Html.Password() handler, used to return password input element to be input password value by user. This article describes about to using password html helper that will make text unreadable by other users in MVC application.

Like all other input elements, using Html.Password() html handler users are not able to read input value. This handler is mostly used in login process of any ASP.Net MVC application because of some special features of this helper.

This helper commonly have following features:

  • Text input in the control is un-readable.
  • Does not allow user to copy the text input in the control.
  • Does not repopulate its value from ModelState object.


  • htmlHelper: html helper instance that this method extends.
  • name: used to specify the name of form field that may be used to look up the value.
  • value: specify the value of this element.
  • htmlAttributes: specify html attributes to be set for the element like placeholder, id, any class or other values.
Overall this will generate an input element having the type password on the page:
<input type=”password” runat=”server” id=”password” />


Provide same functionality but used to render password input element for each property passed via model. Here the model is the class for which the view is to be created. This handler have two type parameter i.e. TModel (specify type of model) and TProperty (specify type of value).


  • htmlHelper: html helper instance that this method extends.
  • expression: used to identifies object that contains property to render.


this line will render an input element of type password having id "Password" passed by the model. After submitting form, the value of this element will assigned to the password field of the model and can be easily accessed for further use.

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 …
