Fix for Blazor error BL9986: Component attributes do not support complex content (mixed C# and markup)

Blazor 0.3.0 was released recently, and I thought of upgrading one of my previously created Blazor CRUD app to the recent version 0.3.0. The Blazor app uses a JavaScript function to control the visibility of the HTML controls present in the Todo list element. The HTML elements inside the list are given a dynamic ID to have uniqueness. Like,

<input id="[email protected]" style="display:none;">

Unfortunately, this gives an error BL9986: Component attributes do not support complex content (mixed C# and markup) while compiling in 0.3.0 version. This is a very common use case in any application to manipulate or apply markup based on the server-side data like applying different CSS classes based on a C# variable.
