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

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Property)]
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public sealed class UrlPropertyAttribute : Attribute

The UrlPropertyAttribute attribute is an attribute applied to a control property that represents a URL. In addition to marking a string property as representing a URL, the UrlPropertyAttribute attribute defines the Filter property that identifies specific file types that can be used to filter against the property.

The following code example demonstrates a class that implements a URL-specific property. In this code example, a UrlPropertyAttribute attribute is applied to the TargetUrl property of the CustomHyperLinkControl class. The attribute sets a specific file filter for ASP.NET files.

public class CustomHyperLinkControl : WebControl
{
    public CustomHyperLinkControl() { }

    // The TargetUrl property represents the URL that  
    // the custom hyperlink control navigates to.
    [UrlProperty("*.aspx")]
    public string TargetUrl
    {
        get
        {
            string s = (string)ViewState["TargetUrl"];
            return ((s == null) ? String.Empty : s);
        }
        set
        {
            ViewState["TargetUrl"] = value;
        }
    }

    // The Text property represents the visible text that  
    // the custom hyperlink control is displayed with.         
    public virtual string Text
    {
        get
        {
            string s = (string)ViewState["Text"];
            return ((s == null) ? String.Empty : s);
        }
        set
        {
            ViewState["Text"] = value;
        }
    }

    // Implement method to render the control.
}
