HtmlAnchor.RenderAttributes Method

Renders the HtmlAnchor control's attributes to the specified HtmlTextWriter object.

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

protected override void RenderAttributes (
	HtmlTextWriter writer
)
protected void RenderAttributes (
	HtmlTextWriter writer
)
protected override function RenderAttributes (
	writer : HtmlTextWriter
)

Parameters

writer

The HtmlTextWriter that contains the output stream to render on the client.

Exception typeCondition

HttpException

The HRef contains a malformed URL.

If the value of the HRef property is a malformed URL, the RenderAttributes method throws an HttpException exception.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the RenderAttributes method in a custom server control so that specific title text, accessible as a ToolTip, is always displayed for the HtmlAnchor control.
