Property Value

The text displayed in the TextBox control. The default is an empty string ("").

Use the Text property to specify or determine the text displayed in the TextBox control. To limit the number of characters accepted by the control, set the MaxLength property. If you want to prevent the text from being modified, set the ReadOnly property.

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 use the Text property to specify the text displayed in the TextBox control.
