Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

property TextWriter^ InnerWriter {
	TextWriter^ get();
	void set(TextWriter^ value);

Property Value

Type: System.IO::TextWriter^

A TextWriter that writes the inner markup content.

Inner markup content is the text found between the opening and closing tags of a markup language element.

If the InnerWriter property is set to a TextWriter object that is an instance of the HttpWriter class, this fact is noted and a separate reference is saved.

The following code example shows how to use a custom Web server control, derived from the WebControl class, that overrides the Render method. It uses the HtmlTextWriter class to write a <font> element. After it writes the opening tag of the element, it uses the InnerWriter property to write the string "<br> The time on the server:" and concatenates this string with the value of the DateTime::Now property.

   // Write the opening tag of a Font element.
   writer->WriteBeginTag( "font" );

   // Write a Color style attribute to the opening tag
   // of the Font element and set its value to red.
   writer->WriteAttribute( "color", "red" );

   // Write the closing character for the opening tag of
   // the Font element.
   writer->Write( '>' );

   // Use the InnerWriter property to create a TextWriter
   // object that will write the content found between
   // the opening and closing tags of the Font element.
   // Message is a string property of the control that
   // overrides the Render method.
   TextWriter^ innerTextWriter = writer->InnerWriter;
   innerTextWriter->Write( String::Concat( Message, "<br> The time on the server : ", System::DateTime::Now.ToLongTimeString() ) );

   // Write the closing tag of the Font element.
   writer->WriteEndTag( "font" );
