HtmlInputControl.Name Property

Gets or sets the unique identifier name for the HtmlInputControl control.

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

public virtual string Name { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_Name ()

/** @property */
public void set_Name (String value)

public function get Name () : String

public function set Name (value : String)

Property Value

A string that represents the value of the Control.UniqueID property.

Use the Name property to determine the unique identifier name for an HtmlInputControl. In this implementation, the get accessor returns the value of the Control.UniqueID property. However, the set accessor does not assign a value to this property.


The set accessor does not assign a value to this property because the Name property must have the same value as the Control.UniqueID property for most controls to work properly.

Classes that inherit from the HtmlInputControl class can override this implementation, if necessary.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Name property to determine the name of the HtmlInputControl that was clicked.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>



   <script runat="server">

      void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

         // Create a data source.
         DataTable dt = new DataTable();
         DataRow dr;
         dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Value", typeof(string)));
         for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) 
            dr = dt.NewRow();
            dr[0] = "Item " + i.ToString();
         // Bind the data source to the Repeater control.
         Repeater1.DataSource = new DataView(dt);


      void AddButton_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
         Message.Text = "The name of the HtmlInputControl clicked is " + 





   <form runat="server">

      <h3> HtmlInputControl Name Example </h3>

      <asp:Repeater id="Repeater1"

            <input Type="Submit"
                   Value='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Value") %>'




      <asp:Label id="Message" runat="server"/>
