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)

'Declaration
Public Overridable Property Name As String

Property Value

Type: System.String
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.

NoteNote

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.
