MVC ReadOnly property
The Readonly() property is only available for the Switch control.  Please make available the Readonly() property for the TextBox, ComboBox, DropDownList and MultiSelect as well.

Adding this method would be helpful for everyone.
As also specified by Darryl, disabled controls are not passed to the controller via the viewmodel. Consequently having a method directly via razor to specify readonly would be perfect.

Also, it's not even possible to use a static class extension because the HtmlAttributes are cleared when the standard HtmlAttributes function is called. (See request 1 and 2, and an example stackoverflow)

Only having 'disabled' is insufficient.

Disabled fields do not post with the form.

Please add ReadOnly properties to these controls
