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

[TypeConverterAttribute(typeof(TargetConverter))]
public virtual string Target { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The target window or frame in which to load the Web page linked to when a HotSpot object that navigates to a URL is clicked. The default value is an empty string (""), which refreshes the window or frame with focus.

Use the Target property to specify the frame or window that displays the Web page linked to when a HotSpot object that navigates to a URL is clicked. This property has an effect only when the HotSpotMode property is set to HotSpotMode.Navigate, to navigate to a URL. If this property is not set, the browser or window with focus refreshes when the HotSpot object is clicked.

NoteNote

The Target property renders as a target attribute. The target attribute on ANCHOR elements is not allowed in the XHTML 1.1 document type definition. Do not set the Target property if the rendered output for the HotSpot must be XHTML 1.1 compliant. For more information, refer to the topic XHTML Standards in Visual Studio and ASP.NET.

Caution noteCaution

We strongly recommend that, when creating accessible Web pages, you avoid using the Target property to target another window. For more information, see ASP.NET Accessibility.

The Target value must begin with a letter in the range of A to Z (case-insensitive), except for the following special values, which begin with an underscore.
