Literal.Render Method

This member overrides Control.Render(HtmlTextWriter), and more complete documentation might be available in that topic.

Sends server control content to a provided HtmlTextWriter object, which writes the content to be rendered on the client.

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

protected internal override void Render(
	HtmlTextWriter writer
)

Parameters

writer
Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

The HtmlTextWriter object that receives the server control content.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the Render method in a custom server control so that specific text is always displayed before the Literal.
