Gets or sets the text to display for each hyperlink in the HyperLinkField object.

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

abstract Text : string with get, set
override Text : string with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.String

The text to display for each hyperlink in the HyperLinkField. The default is an empty string (""), which indicates that this property is not set.

Use the Text property to specify the caption to display for the hyperlinks in a HyperLinkField object. When this property is set, each hyperlink shares the same caption.

Instead of using this property to set the hyperlink captions, you can use the DataTextField property to bind the hyperlink captions to a field in a data source. This allows you to display a different caption for each hyperlink.

System_CAPS_noteNote

If the DataTextField and Text properties are both set, the DataTextField property takes precedence.

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 Text property to specify a static caption to display for the hyperlinks in a HyperLinkField object.
