HtmlAnchor.Name Property


Gets or sets the bookmark name defined in the HtmlAnchor server control.

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

public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The bookmark name.

Use this property to mark a section on a Web page with a name. This allows you to link to this section from anywhere on the same page. For example, you can provide a table of contents at the top of a page that will link directly to topics on the page.

To link to a marked section, use an HtmlAnchor control with the HRef property set to the name of the section, preceded by a # symbol (<a HRef= "#Topic1"/>).

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Name property to mark different sections on the Web page, and link to them from a table of contents.

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<html xmlns="" >  
<head runat="server">
    <title>Table of Contents</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">

         <a id="TOC"/>
         <h2>Table of Contents</h2>
         <a href="#Topic1">Topic 1</a><br />
         <a href="#Topic2">Topic 2</a><br />
         <a href="#Topic3">Topic 3</a><br />

         <br /><br />

         <a id="Topic1"/>
            <h3>Topic 1</h3>
            <br /><br />
            Contents for first topic...
            <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
            <a href="#TOC">Top</a><br />

         <a id="Topic2"/>
            <h3>Topic 2</h3>
            <br /><br />
            Contents for second topic...
            <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
            <a href="#TOC">Top</a><br />
            <br />

         <a id="Topic3"/>
            <h3>Topic 3</h3>
            <br /><br />
            Contents for third topic...
            <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
            <a href="#TOC">Top</a><br />
            <br /><br />
