TagHelpers is one of the new features introduced in MVC 6, part of ASP.NET 5. They are used for generating reusable pieces of UI that require some kind of server-side processing. I took a closer look at the built-in collection of TagHelpers in my last article, Introducing TagHelpers in ASP.NET MVC 6. This article shows how to create your own custom TagHelpers. It will illustrate two ways of doing so: through parsing custom attributes; and by binding properties on the TagHelper.

TagHelpers is one of the new features introduced in MVC 6. The TagHelper's role is similar to the one played in previous versions of ASP.NET MVC by HtmlHelpers: they are designed to simplify the work required to author views that need to respond dynamically to the data provided to them. However, the way in which they work and their impact on view design is very different to HtmlHelpers.
