CommandField::EditText Property

Gets or sets the caption for an Edit button in a CommandField field.

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

public:
virtual property String^ EditText {
	String^ get ();
	void set (String^ value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::String
The caption for an Edit button in a CommandField. The default is "Edit".

When the ButtonType property of a CommandField object is set to ButtonType.Button or ButtonType.Link, use the EditText property to specify the text to display for an Edit button.

NoteNote

As an alternative to displaying text for an Edit button, you can display an image by first setting the ButtonType property to ButtonType.Image and then setting the EditImageUrl property.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the EditText property to specify a custom caption for an Edit button displayed in a CommandField field of a GridView control.
