RadioButtonList.Render Method (HtmlTextWriter)


Displays the RadioButtonList control on the client.

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

protected internal override void Render(
	HtmlTextWriter writer


Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

A System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter that contains the output stream for rendering on the client.

This method is used primarily by control developers in custom controls that derive from the RadioButtonList class.

The Render method implementation for a RadioButtonList control initializes a RepeatInfo object for the list, and calls the RenderRepeater method, which in turn uses the RenderItem method to render individual radio button list items.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the Render method in a custom server control so that the RadioButtonList control is always displayed with descriptive text.
