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

public interface ITextControl

The ITextControl type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public propertyTextGets or sets the text content of a control.
Top

The ITextControl interface defines the Text property a control implements to allow the getting or setting of its text content. The Text property can be set programmatically or through user input.

Caution noteCaution

A control implementing this interface can be used to display user input. Before displaying user input, the input must be checked for malicious client script, such as executable script or SQL statements. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Validation Server Control Syntax.

The following code example shows a custom control that implements the [T:System.Web.UI.]ITextControl interface. A default value is assigned to the Text property if null is passed to the property.


public class CustomTextControl : Control, ITextControl
{
    private string _text;

	public CustomTextControl()
	{
	}

    public string Text
    {
        get
        {
            return _text;
        }
        set
        {
            if (value != null)
            {
                _text = value;
            }
            else
            {
                _text = "No Value.";
            }
        }
    }

    // Provide the remaining code to implement a text control.
}
