'Id' Property on DropDownListFor Control


is it possible for a control to have both an 'id' property and a 'for' property

I have created the following drop-down list control:

@{Html.EJ().DropDownListFor(b => b.BarrelNumber)
                                .DropDownListFields(Df => Df.Text("BarrelNumberNavigation.Number")

and I want to give the drop down list an 'id' property (so that I can cascade to it from another drop-down list).

Is this possible? If so, how would I go about it?

Or... alternatively, how I would include a 'for' property on this control:

                                .DropDownListFields(Df => Df.Text("BarrelNumberNavigation.Number")

Hi Sean McGurk,  

Is not possible to use both 'id' and 'for' property. In dropdownlistfor control will generate id and this id used to cascade to another dropdownlist. We have prepared a sample based on your requirement by using cascade to dropdownlistfor. We have attached sample below link.  

   @Html.EJ().DropDownList("groupsList").Datasource((IEnumerable<groups>)ViewBag.datasource).DropDownListFields(f => f.Value("parentId").Text("text")).CascadeTo("auto1").ClientSideEvents(e => e.Change("onChange")).WatermarkText("Select") 
    <div class="col-xs-8 col-sm-4"> 
        <span class="txt">Select Country</span> 
        @Html.EJ().DropDownListFor(model => model.auto1, (Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.DropDownListProperties)ViewData["ddl"]).Enabled(false)
