OnPreRender Method

LinkButton.OnPreRender Method

Raises the PreRender event.

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

protected internal override void OnPreRender(
	EventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.EventArgs

An EventArgs object that contains the event data.

The OnPreRender method notifies the LinkButton control to perform any necessary prerendering steps prior to saving view state and rendering content to the client.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the OnPreRender method so that a border is never displayed in a custom LinkButton control.
