HtmlMeta.Name Property

Gets or sets the metadata property name defined by the HtmlMeta control.

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

public virtual string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The property name.

The Name property, together with the Content property, defines a metadata property of the page.

The Name property is rendered to the name attribute of the resulting HTML <meta> element.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the HtmlMeta control to define HTML <meta> elements for a Web page. Two <meta> tags are defined, one listing keywords describing the page and one listing the date the page was created. The Name property is used to define the name attribute of each <meta> tag.

    // Get a reference to the page header element.
    HtmlHead head = (HtmlHead)Page.Header;

    // Define an HTML <meta> element that is useful for search engines.
    hm1.Name = "keywords";
    hm1.Content = "words that describe your web page";
    head.Controls.Add(hm1);

    // Define an HTML <meta> element with a Scheme attribute.
