HtmlTextWriter.WriteBreak Method

Writes a <br /> markup element to the output stream.

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

public virtual void WriteBreak()

Use the WriteBreak method to render line breaks in custom control or adapter markup. The WriteBreak method writes a space between the br and / for improved HTML compatibility.

The following code example shows how to call the WriteBreak method to write a <br /> element to the requesting browser after the WriteEncodedText method writes the encoded &lt;custID&gt; &amp; &lt;invoice#&gt; markup.

// Assign a value to a string variable,
// encode it, and write it to a page.
colHeads = "<custID> & <invoice#>";
