CommandField.NewText Property

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

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

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

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

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

public function get NewText () : String

public function set NewText (value : String)

Property Value

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

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

NoteNote

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