ControlBuilder.AppendLiteralString Method

Adds the specified literal content to a control. This method is called by the ASP.NET page framework.

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

public virtual void AppendLiteralString(
	string s


Type: System.String
The content to add to the control.


The string literal is not well formed.

Override the AppendLiteralString method to control how literal content between the control's opening and closing tags is processed. Literal content can be any text that is passed by the browser to the server control. For example, any HTML elements and text, between their opening and closing tags, are literal content.

// Override the AppendLiteralString method so that literal
// text between rows of controls are ignored.  
public override void AppendLiteralString(string s) 
  // Ignores literals between rows.
