Setting the defaultClientScript Property of an HTML Document

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The defaultClientScript property of an HTML document sets the default scripting language used by its client-side <SCRIPT> elements.

Setting the defaultClientScript property in Visual Studio .NET inserts a <META NAME="vs_defaultClientScript"> element into the <HEAD> portion of the active HTML document:

<META NAME="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript">.

For more information, see defaultClientScript Property.

You can set the defaultClientScript property either in the HTML Document Properties, Properties Window or in the General Tab, DOCUMENT Property Pages Dialog Box.
