    I am using Telerik ASP.NET MVC Extensions 2016.1.111.0. and Razor. The CheckBoxFor control behaves slightly illogical - in one case it shows a label, in another case it does not. See the attached screenshot.

    Both parameters are booleans, the difference is that one of the has a DisplayName:


    From the model.cs

            public bool Dator { get; set; }
            [DisplayName("Passerkort 07:30-17:00")]
            public bool Passerkort { get; set; }


    From the Index.cshtml

                @Html.LabelFor(m => m.Dator)
                @Html.Kendo().CheckBoxFor(m => m.Dator)
                @Html.LabelFor(m => m.Passerkort)
                @Html.Kendo().CheckBoxFor(m => m.Passerkort)

    The parameter with the DisplayName specified will be displayed with a label attached to the CheckBoxFor, so to get rid of it I have to set .Label("") for that checkbox. Not a big deal, but I think maybe this was not the intention.

    Best regards,

    Hello Henrik,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is an expected behavior - when a data annotation attribute is set for a model field used inside CheckBoxFor() a corresponding label element is created. I would suggest that you either use other model field that doesn't have an attribute or remove the additional label.
