MVC will omit posting a boolean back to a field...no longer true in Visual Studio 2017

It appears in Visual Studio 2017, around minute 4:22 of the video, that boolean values are not posted back into the field.

It still happens for me and I'm using Visual Studio 2019 — possibly there were other factors at play causing it to not occur in your environment?

Nope. If you put "True" in the "Exclude" field, after pressing the "Continue" button in the Visual Studio 2017, I get "value" in the "Exclude" field, but if you put "False" and then press "Continue", the field will be empty.

Windows 7 here with Visual Studio 2017.
