	HtmlTextWriter writer


Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

The HtmlTextWriter that receives the zone's body content.

The RenderBody method renders the body area of a CatalogZoneBase zone, which is the main content area between the header and footer areas and contains CatalogPart controls.

The RenderBody method overrides the base method in the WebZone class to provide specialized rendering that addresses layout and style attributes that apply only to CatalogZoneBase zones. The method renders a table that contains the entire contents of the body, and within that table, it sets different attribute values depending on various conditions, including how many CatalogPart controls are in the zone. If there are multiple CatalogPart controls, a link is created for each control, and only the contents of the currently selected control are displayed. Special style attributes are set in the CatalogPartChrome property for the selected CatalogPart control versus the ones that are not currently selected.

If there are no CatalogPart controls in the zone, the RenderBody method renders the value of the EmptyZoneText property.
