.CSHTML File Extension
What is a CSHTML file?
A CSHTML file is a C# HTML webpage file used by Razor, an ASP.NET view engine used to generate webpages for a user's web browser. It is similar to a standard ASP.NET webpage (.ASP or .ASPX file) but uses a slightly different syntax. CSTML files run on a web server, which generates the HTML for the client web browser, and they can be programmed with syntax highlighting and Intellisense code suggestions using Microsoft Visual Studio.
CSHTML files are similar to .VBHTML (Visual Basic HTML) files, but they use syntax that is closer to the C# language than the Visual Basic language.
NOTE: Razor offers new templating syntax operations in addition to those supported by the standard ASP.NET MVC default view engine.
