HiddenFieldDesigner.GetDesignTimeHtml Method

Gets the markup that is used to render the associated control at design time.

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

public override string GetDesignTimeHtml()

Return Value

Type: System.String
A string containing the markup used to render the HiddenField at design time.

The GetDesignTimeHtml method generates the markup for a placeholder that includes the control class name and the ID property.

The following code example shows how to override the GetDesignTimeHtml method in a class that is inherited from the HiddenFieldDesigner class to change the appearance of the HiddenField control at design time. The GetDesignTimeHtml override generates a placeholder that includes the Value property in the placeholder, along with the control class name and the ID property.

// Generate the design-time markup. 
public override string GetDesignTimeHtml()
    // Get a reference to the control or a copy of the control.
    MyHiddenField myHF = (MyHiddenField)ViewControl;

    // Create a placeholder that displays the control value.
    string markup = CreatePlaceHolderDesignTimeHtml(
         "Value: \"" + myHF.Value.ToString() + "\"" );

    return markup;

} // GetDesignTimeHtml
