WebControl.Attributes Property

Gets the collection of arbitrary attributes (for rendering only) that do not correspond to properties on the control.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public AttributeCollection Attributes { get; }
/** @property */
public AttributeCollection get_Attributes ()

public function get Attributes () : AttributeCollection

Property Value

A AttributeCollection of name and value pairs.

The Attributes collection contains a collection of all attributes declared in the opening tag of a Web server control. This allows you to programmatically control the attributes associated with a Web server control. You can add attributes to the collection or remove attributes from the collection.

NoteNote

This property is rendered with all attributes in the collection in the control’s opening tag, regardless of the browser settings. Not all browsers support every attribute that is rendered. The unsupported attributes are usually ignored by the browser.

NoteNote

You cannot add client-side script to a WebControl instance using the Attributes collection. To add client-side script, use the ClientScript property on the Page control.

The following example illustrates how the Attributes property of a WebControl can be used to run a JavaScript command when the TextBox control loses focus.

NoteNote

The following code sample uses the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see ASP.NET Web Page Code Model.
