HtmlTextWriter.RegisterTag Method

Registers markup tags, whether literals or dynamically generated, from the source file so that they can be properly rendered to the requesting client.

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

protected static void RegisterTag(
	string name,
	HtmlTextWriterTag key


Type: System.String
A string that contains the HTML tag.
Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriterTag
An HtmlTextWriterTag that specifies which element to render.

The predefined markup tags of the HTML language are registered by calls to the RegisterTag method when the first HtmlTextWriter object is created. Dynamic markup tags can be registered by using the RegisterTag method at other times.

The registration table used by the RegisterTag method is static, so registration of tags applies to all HtmlTextWriter objects on the host computer.
