RequiredFieldValidator.AddAttributesToRender Method

Adds the HTML attributes and styles that need to be rendered for the control to the specified HtmlTextWriter object.

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

protected override void AddAttributesToRender(
	HtmlTextWriter writer
)

Parameters

writer
Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

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

The following code example demonstrates how to override the AddAttributesToRender method in a custom server control so that the RequiredFieldValidator error message always displays as bold.

Security noteSecurity Note

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
