FormView.HeaderTemplate Property

Gets or sets the user-defined content for the header row in a FormView control.

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

'Declaration
<BrowsableAttribute(False)> _
<PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)> _
<TemplateContainerAttribute(GetType(FormView))> _
Public Overridable Property HeaderTemplate As ITemplate
<asp:FormView>
	<HeaderTemplate>ITemplate</HeaderTemplate>
</asp:FormView>

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ITemplate
A System.Web.UI.ITemplate that contains the custom content for the header row. The default value is Nothing, which indicates that this property is not set.

The header row is displayed at the top of the FormView control when the HeaderText or HeaderTemplate property is set. You can define your own custom user interface (UI) for the header row by using the HeaderTemplate property. To specify a custom template for the header row, first place <HeaderTemplate> tags between the opening and closing tags of the FormView control. You can then list the contents of the template between the opening and closing <HeaderTemplate> tags. To control the style of the header row, use the HeaderStyle property. Alternatively, you can simply display text in the header row by setting the HeaderText property instead of this property.

NoteNote

If both the HeaderText and HeaderTemplate properties are set, the HeaderTemplate property takes precedence.

The following example demonstrates how to use the HeaderTemplate property to define a custom template to render for the header row.

    ' Retrieve the HeaderLabel Label control from the header row. 
    Dim headerLabel As Label = CType(header.FindControl("HeaderLabel"), Label)

    If headerLabel IsNot Nothing Then

      ' Display the current page number.

      headerLabel.Text = "Page " & currentPage.ToString()
