Property Value

Type: System.String

The text caption displayed on the LinkButton control. The default value is an empty string ("").

Use the Text property to specify or determine the caption to display on the LinkButton control.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

This control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Validation Server Control Syntax.

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 Text property to specify the caption that appears on the LinkButton control.
