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

public int Size { get; set; }
/** @property */
public int get_Size ()

/** @property */
public void set_Size (int value)

public function get Size () : int

Property Value

The width of the file-path text box. The default value is -1, which indicates that the property has not been set.

Use this property to specify the width of the text box in which to enter the file path.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Size property to specify the width of the text box in which the user enters the file path. For this example to work properly, you need to create a directory called Temp on your computer's drive C.
