MultiView.PreviousViewCommandName Field

Represents the command name associated with the previous View control to display in a MultiView control. This field is read-only.

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

public static readonly string PreviousViewCommandName

Use the PreviousViewCommandName field to represent the "PrevView" command name.

You can use the value of this field to take advantage of the MultiView control's automatic updating of the active View control. For example, if a View control contains a Button control that navigates to the next View, you can set the CommandName property to the value of the PreviousViewCommandName field, which is "PrevView". This causes the MultiView control to automatically increment the value of the ActiveViewIndex property when the button is clicked.

The following code example demonstrates how to use a MultiView control to create a basic survey. Each View control is a separate survey question. The PreviousViewCommandName and NextViewCommandName fields are used to provide automatic navigation between the previous and next View controls in the survey.
