The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Renders the attributes into the specified writer and then calls the RenderAttributes method.

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

protected override void RenderAttributes(
	HtmlTextWriter writer


Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

An HtmlTextWriter that receives the rendered content.

The RenderAttributes method overrides the base HtmlControl.RenderAttributes.method. RenderAttributes is used primarily by control developers.

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

            // Call the base class's RenderAttributes method.

            // Write out the HtmlInputButton control's Title tag.
