Property Value

The text contents of the cell. The default value is String.Empty.

Use the Text property to specify or determine the text contents of the cell. This property is commonly used to programmatically update the contents of a cell.

NoteNote:

Setting the Text property will clear any other controls contained in the TableCell.

Caution noteCaution:

The Text control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Securing Standard ControlsHow to: Protect Against Script Exploits in a Web Application by Applying HTML Encoding to Strings, and Introduction to Validating User Input in ASP.NET Web Pages.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a new instance of a TableCell control programmatically. In particular, note how the Text property is used for setting the contents of the TableCell control.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TableCell class.

' Create more rows for the table.
Dim rowNum As Integer
For rowNum = 2 To 9
    Dim tempRow As New TableRow()
    Dim cellNum As Integer
    For cellNum = 0 To 2
        Dim tempCell As New TableCell()
        tempCell.Text = _
            String.Format("({0},{1})", rowNum, cellNum)
        tempRow.Cells.Add(tempCell)
    Next
    Table1.Rows.Add(tempRow)
Next
