HyperLink.AddParsedSubObject Method

Notifies the control that an element was parsed, and adds the element to the HyperLink control.

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

'Declaration
Protected Overrides Sub AddParsedSubObject ( _
	obj As Object _
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object
An Object that represents the parsed element.

This method is used primarily by control developers, when deriving a custom control from the HyperLink class.

If the input object is a LiteralControl, and the HyperLink control has no child controls, then the input object is used to set the Text property of the control. Otherwise, the AddParsedSubObject method of the base Control class is called and the specified object is added to the Controls collection.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the AddParsedSubObject method in a custom HyperLink server control so that it always sets the text property to the parsed object's text property, if the parsed object is a Literal, and to an empty string otherwise.
