Property Value

Type: System::String^

A string that represents the text to render in an HTML caption element in a FormView control. The default value is an empty string ("").

Use the Caption property to specify the text to render in an HTML caption element in a FormView control. The text that you specify provides assistive technology devices with a description of the table that can be used to make the control more accessible.

Additional accessibility support for the FormView control is provided by the CaptionAlign property. Use the CaptionAlign property to specify the alignment of the HTML caption element in a FormView control.

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 example demonstrates how to use the Caption property to specify the text for the HTML caption element rendered in a FormView control.
