HtmlTextArea.RenderAttributes Method

Renders the HtmlTextArea control's attributes to the specified HtmlTextWriter object.

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

protected override void RenderAttributes(
	HtmlTextWriter writer


Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

The HtmlTextWriter that receives the rendered content.

The RenderAttributes method renders the name attribute of the HtmlTextArea control directly to ensure that it has the same value as the Control.UniqueID property. After rendering the attribute, the RenderAttributes method calls the base class's RenderAttributes method.

The RenderAttributes method is used primarily by control developers extending the functionality of the HtmlTextArea control.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the RenderAttributes method in a custom server control so that specific title text is always displayed for the HtmlTextArea control.

        protected override void RenderAttributes(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter writer)
            // Write out the Title attribute.
            writer.Write(" Title=\"Text from RenderAttributes.\"");

            // Call the base class's RenderAttributes method.
