HtmlInputFile.OnPreRender Method (EventArgs)

 

Raises the PreRender event for the HtmlInputFile control.

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

protected internal override void OnPreRender(
	EventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.EventArgs

An EventArgs that contains event data.

If no encoding is specified for the Web page's HtmlForm control, the Enctype property is set to "multipart/form-data".

The following code example demonstrates how to override the OnPreRender method so that a Title attribute is always added to each custom HtmlInputFile control. For this example to work properly, you need to create a directory called Temp on your computer's drive C.
