CommandField.SelectText Property

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

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

public virtual string SelectText { get; set; }

Property Value

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

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

NoteNote

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