WebPartZoneBase.MenuLabelText Property

Gets or sets the value that serves as a label for the verbs drop-down menu in the title bar of each WebPart control in a zone.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public virtual string MenuLabelText { get; set; }
<asp:WebPartZoneBase MenuLabelText="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string containing the text that appears in the label for the verbs menu. The default is an empty string ("").

If the MenuLabelText property is assigned a value, the label appears alongside an image that represents the verbs drop-down menu in the title bar of each WebPart control in a zone. If no value is assigned to the property, only the image appears on the menu.

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 the declarative use of the MenuLabelText property on a WebPartZone control. For the full code example, including the code-behind source file and the .aspx page that contains the zone in this code, see the WebPartZoneBase class overview.

Notice that the MenuLabelText property has a value assigned to it in the declarative markup. This value impacts WebPartZone2. After you load the page into a browser, switch the page into edit mode, and notice that the text for the verbs menu label in WebPartZone2 is the value assigned to it in the declarative markup.
