OnPreRender Method

Control.OnPreRender Method (EventArgs)


Raises the PreRender event.

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

protected internal virtual void OnPreRender(
	EventArgs e


Type: System.EventArgs

An EventArgs object that contains the event data.

ASP.NET calls this method to raise the PreRender event. If you are developing a custom control, you can override this method in order to provide additional processing. If you override this method, call the base control's OnPreRender method to notify subscribers to the event.

// Override the OnPreRender method to set _message to
// a default value if it is null.
protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
    if (_message == null)
        _message = "Here is some default text.";
