Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls

[ThemeableAttribute(false)]
public virtual string Text { get; set; }
<asp:ListControl Text="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
The SelectedValue of the ListControl.

Implements

ITextControl.Text

The Text property gets and sets the same value that the SelectedValue property does.

The SelectedValue property is commonly used to determine the value of the selected item in the ListControl control. If no item is selected, an empty string ("") is returned.

You can also use the SelectedValue property to select an item in the ListControl control by setting it with the value of the item. If no items in the ListControl control contain the specified value, an System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException exception is thrown.

Control developers can override the SelectedValue property to support features that are not related to the SelectedValue property.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins Overview.
