HtmlElement.InnerText Property

Gets or sets the text assigned to the element.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public string InnerText { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The element's text, absent any HTML markup. If the element contains child elements, only the text in those child elements will be preserved.


The specified element cannot contain text (for example, an IMG element).

If you attempt to assign HTML to an element with InnerText, the HTML code will display as literals in the document, just as if you were viewing HTML within a text file. If you assign HTML to an element using the InnerHtml property, InnerText will return all of the text in that HTML with the markup removed.

Assigning a value to InnerText will destroy any child elements that belong to the element.

The following code creates a new hyperlink using CreateElement, and assigns text to the link using the InnerText property.

		private void AddUrlToTooltip(string url)
			if (webBrowser1.Document != null)
				HtmlElement elem = webBrowser1.Document.CreateElement("A");
				elem.SetAttribute("HREF", url);
				elem.InnerText = "Visit our Web site for more details.";
