TextBox.AddParsedSubObject Method (Object)

 

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Overridden to allow only literal controls to be added as the Text property.

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

protected override void AddParsedSubObject(
	object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object

An Object that represents the parsed element.

Exception Condition
HttpException

obj is not of type LiteralControl.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the AddParsedSubObject method in a custom server control so that it always sets the Text property to the parsed object's Text property if the parsed object is a Literal control, and throws an exception otherwise.

System_CAPS_security Security 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.
