TreeNode.Target Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets the target window or frame in which to display the Web page content associated with a node.

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

public string Target { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_Target ()

/** @property */
public void set_Target (String value)

public function get Target () : String

public function set Target (value : String)

Property Value

The target window or frame in which to display the linked Web page content. Values must begin with a letter in the range of A through Z (case-insensitive), except for certain special values that begin with an underscore, as shown in the following table.

Target value

Description

_blank

Renders the content in a new window without frames.

_parent

Renders the content in the immediate frameset parent.

_search

Renders the content in the search pane.

_self

Renders the content in the frame with focus.

_top

Renders the content in the full window without frames.

NoteNote

Check your browser documentation to determine whether the _search value is supported. For example, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and later support the _search target value.

The default value is an empty string (""), which refreshes the window or frame with focus.

Use the Target property to specify the window or frame in which to display the Web content linked to a node when that node is clicked.

NoteNote

Setting this property overrides the Target property of the TreeView control.

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 TreeNode object must be XHTML 1.1-compliant. For more information, see ASP.NET and XHTML.

When creating accessible Web pages, it is strongly recommended you avoid using the Target property to target another window. For more information, see ASP.NET Accessibility.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

The following code example demonstrates how to set up the frames for the next example.


<html>
         
    <frameset cols="30%, 75%">
   
        <frame name="Menu" src="TreeViewFramecs.aspx"/>
        <frame name="Content" src="Home.aspx"/> 
           
    </frameset>      
   
</html>


The following code example demonstrates how to use the Target property to specify the frame in which to display the linked content. This example is used within the frameset of the previous example to display a table of contents.

  <body>
    <form runat="server">

            Expanded="True">
             
            <asp:TreeNode Value="Page 1"

                Text="Section 1"
                Target="Content"/>
