CheckBox.Text Property

Gets or sets the text label associated with the CheckBox.

[Visual Basic]
Public Overridable Property Text As String
[C#]
public virtual string Text {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property virtual String* get_Text();
public: __property virtual void set_Text(String*);
[JScript]
public function get Text() : String;
public function set Text(String);

Property Value

The text label associated with the CheckBox. The default value is String.Empty.

Remarks

Use this property to specify the text label associated with the CheckBox control. This property can also be used to programmatically get the text label associated with the CheckBox control.

CAUTION   This control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Validation Server Controls.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to use the Text property to specify the text label associated with the CheckBox control.
