Property Value

Type: System::String
A string that represents the text to render in an HTML caption element in a GridView 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 GridView 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. You can also specify the position at which to render the HTML caption element by using the CaptionAlign 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 example demonstrates how to use the Caption property to specify the caption for a GridView control.
