CheckBoxField.Text Property

Gets or sets the caption to display next to each check box in a CheckBoxField object.

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

public virtual string Text { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The caption displayed next to each check box in the CheckBoxField. The default is an empty string ("").

The Text property is used to display a caption next to each check box in a CheckBoxField object. If the Text property is set to an empty string, no caption is displayed.

NoteNote

All check boxes in the CheckBoxField object share the same caption.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Text property to specify a custom caption for the check boxes in a CheckBoxField object in a GridView control.
