CommandField.InsertText Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

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

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

[LocalizableAttribute(true)] 
public virtual string InsertText { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_InsertText ()

/** @property */
public void set_InsertText (String value)

public function get InsertText () : String

public function set InsertText (value : String)

Property Value

The caption for the Insert button in a CommandField. The default is "Insert".

When the ButtonType property of a CommandField field is set to ButtonType.Button or ButtonType.Link, use the InsertText property to specify the text to display for the Insert button.

NoteNote

As an alternative to displaying text for the Insert button, you can display an image by first setting the ButtonType property to ButtonType.Image and then setting the InsertImageUrl 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 InsertText property to specify a custom caption for an Insert button displayed in a CommandField field of a DetailsView control.
