- @Html.TextBox() is loosely typed method whereas @Html.TextBoxFor() is a strongly typed (generic) extension method.
- TextBox() requires property name as string parameter where as TextBoxFor() requires lambda expression as a parameter.
- TextBox doesn’t give you compile time error if you have specified wrong property name. It will throw run time exception.
- TextBoxFor is generic method so it will give you compile time error if you have specified wrong property name or property name changes. (Provided view is not compile at run time. )
