HtmlInputText.Value Property

Gets or sets the contents of the text box.

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

public override string Value { get; set; }
<asp:HtmlInputText Value="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
The text contained in the text box. The default is an empty string ("").

Use the Value property to programmatically determine the text entered by the user into the text box. You can also use this property to provide default text for the text box.

NoteNote

If you specify a value for a password type HtmlInputText control, that value is not displayed in the text box.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Value property to programmatically determine the text entered by the user in the text box.
