CommandField.DeleteText Property

Gets or sets the caption for a Delete button in a CommandField field.

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

'Declaration
Public Overridable Property DeleteText As String

Property Value

Type: System.String
The caption for a Delete button in a CommandField. The default is "Delete".

When the ButtonType property of a CommandField field is set to ButtonType.Button or ButtonType.Link, use the DeleteText property to specify the text to display for a Delete button.

NoteNote

As an alternative to displaying text for a Delete button, you can display an image by first setting the ButtonType property to ButtonType.Image and then setting the DeleteImageUrl property.

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 DeleteText property to specify a custom caption for a Delete button displayed in a CommandField field of a GridView control.
