HtmlAnchor.Name Property

Gets or sets the bookmark name defined in the HtmlAnchor server control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.HtmlControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public string Name { get; set; }
<asp:HtmlAnchor Name="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
The bookmark name.

Use this property to mark a section on a Web page with a name. This allows you to link to this section from anywhere on the same page. For example, you can provide a table of contents at the top of a page that will link directly to topics on the page.

To link to a marked section, use an HtmlAnchor control with the HRef property set to the name of the section, preceded by a # symbol (<a HRef= "#Topic1"/>).

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Name property to mark different sections on the Web page, and link to them from a table of contents.
