ASP.NET Web Server Controls

ASP.NET Web server controls are objects on ASP.NET Web pages that run when the page is requested and render markup to a browser. Many Web server controls are similar to familiar HTML elements, such as buttons and text boxes. Other controls encompass complex behavior, such as a calendar controls, and controls that manage data connections.

The topics in this section describe what ASP.NET Web server controls are and how to work with them. The section also contains information about all built-in ASP.NET Web server controls and how you can create your own controls.
