Button.AddAttributesToRender Method

This method supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Adds the attributes of the Button control to the output stream for rendering on the client.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

protected override void AddAttributesToRender (
	HtmlTextWriter writer
)
protected void AddAttributesToRender (
	HtmlTextWriter writer
)
protected override function AddAttributesToRender (
	writer : HtmlTextWriter
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

writer

An System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter that contains the output stream to render on the client.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the AddAttributesToRender method in a custom server control, so that the Button text always displays in red.
