HttpCapabilitiesBase.RequiresContentTypeMetaTag Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether the browser requires an HTML <meta> element for which the content-type attribute is specified.

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

public virtual bool RequiresContentTypeMetaTag { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the browser requires an HTML <meta> element for which the content-type attribute is specified; otherwise, false. The default is false.

If true, server-control adapters insert the following tag into the HTML <head> element of a Web page:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="CONTENT-TYPE" CONTENT=""; CHARSET="">

In this example, CONTENT is the value returned by the PreferredRenderingMime property, and charset is the character encoding used.

The following code example shows how to determine whether the browser requires an HTML <meta> element for which the content-type attribute is specified.

        String labelText = "";
        System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities myBrowserCaps = Request.Browser;
        if (((System.Web.Configuration.HttpCapabilitiesBase)myBrowserCaps).RequiresContentTypeMetaTag)
        {
            labelText = "Browser requires an HTML META element whose CONTENT-TYPE attribute is specified.";
        }
        else
        {
            labelText = "Browser does not require an HTML META element whose CONTENT-TYPE attribute is specified.";
        }

        Label1.Text = labelText;
    }
