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

protected internal override void RenderChildren(
	HtmlTextWriter writer


Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

The HtmlTextWriter that receives the rendered content.


The Web page has more than one server-side <form> tag.

The RenderChildren method renders client script to ensure that the browser focus is set to the control specified in the DefaultFocus property.


A control specified by the Page.SetFocus property takes precedence over a control specified by the DefaultFocus property.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding the RenderChildren method in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's RenderChildren method so that the HtmlForm control's child controls are correctly rendered.
