ControlValuePropertyAttribute.Name Property

Gets the default property for a control.

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

public string Name { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The default property for a control.

When a ControlParameter object is defined without its PropertyName property set, use the Name property to determine the default property that is bound to the ControlParameter object at run time.

The following code example demonstrates how to set the Name property by applying a ControlValuePropertyAttribute attribute to a custom control.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Text;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace Samples.AspNet.CS.Controls
    // Set ControlValueProperty attribute to specify the default 
    // property of this control that a ControlParameter object  
    // binds to at run time.
    [ControlValueProperty("Text", "Default Text")]
    public class SimpleCustomControl : WebControl
        private string text;

        public string Text
                return text;
                text = value;

        protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter output)
