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

protected internal override void Render(
	HtmlTextWriter writer


Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

An HtmlTextWriter that represents the output stream to render HTML content on the client.

The Render method is used primarily by control developers when deriving a custom class from the MultiView control.

The Render method writes the rendered content of the active view to the client using the supplied HtmlTextWriter. You can set the active view in a MultiView control using the SetActiveView method or the ActiveViewIndex property. You can determine which one of the View controls in the Views collection is the active view, if any, by using the GetActiveView method or the ActiveViewIndex property.

If an active view is set for the MultiView control, the active View control is used to render content for that view and its child controls. If an active view is not set for the MultiView control, no content is rendered to the HtmlTextWriter.
