HtmlInputText Server Control Declarative Syntax

Creates a server-side control that maps to the <input type=text> and <input type=password> HTML elements and allows you to create a single line text box to receive user input.

<input 
    Type="Password|Text"
    EnableViewState="False|True"
    Id="string"
    Visible="False|True"
    OnDataBinding="OnDataBinding event handler"
    OnDisposed="OnDisposed event handler"
    OnInit="OnInit event handler"
    OnLoad="OnLoad event handler"
    OnPreRender="OnPreRender event handler"
    OnServerChange="OnServerChange event handler"
    OnUnload="OnUnload event handler"
    runat="server"
    />

Use the HtmlInputText control to run server code against the <input type=text> and <input type=password> HTML elements. As with standard HTML, these controls can be used to enter user names and passwords in HTML forms.

NoteNote

When the Type property is set to password, your entry is masked in the text box.

You can use this control in conjunction with the HtmlInputButton, HtmlInputImage, or HtmlButton control to process user input on the server. You can control the number of characters that can be entered, the width, and the contents of the control by using the MaxLength, Size, and Value properties, respectively.

NoteNote

This control does not require a closing tag.

The following example demonstrates how use the HtmlInputText control to get user input.
