GenericWebPart.TitleUrl Property

 

Gets or sets a URL to supplemental information about a GenericWebPart control.

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

public override string TitleUrl { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

A string that represents a URL to more information about a GenericWebPart control. The default value is an empty string ("").

When you assign a URL to the TitleUrl property, the title of the control becomes a link. This property provides a convenient way for end users to access additional information about a control. The additional information could include copyright data, contact data, details about the creator of the control, or a summary of the purpose of a control.

This property overrides the base property so that you can access the property on the child control as if it were a true WebPart control.

You can set values for the property on your control in the declarative markup of a Web page, as well as programmatically. To provide a default value for the property whenever the control is used, you can implement the IWebPart interface.

The following code example demonstrates declarative and programmatic use of the TitleUrl property. The complete source code for the example is found in the Example section of the GenericWebPart overview topic.

The first part of the code example shows how the TitleUrl property is set declaratively on a server control within a WebPartZone control.

<asp:WebPartZone ID="WebPartZone1" runat="server">
  <ZoneTemplate>
    <asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" runat="server"
      Title="My Calendar"
      Description="A calendar used as a GenericWebPart control."
      CatalogIconImageUrl="MyCatalogIcon.gif"
      TitleIconimageUrl ="MyTitleIcon.gif"
      TitleUrl="MyInfoUrl.htm" 
      Width="250"/>
  </ZoneTemplate>
</asp:WebPartZone>

The second part of the code example demonstrates how to access the property programmatically to display its value in a label.

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

  Label2.Text =
    @"<h3>Calendar GenericWebPart Properties</h3>" +
    "<em>Title: </em>" + calendarPart.Title +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>CatalogIconImageUrl:  </em>" + calendarPart.CatalogIconImageUrl +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>TitleUrl: </em>" + calendarPart.TitleUrl +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>Decription: </em>" + calendarPart.Description +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>TitleIconImageUrl: </em>" + calendarPart.TitleIconImageUrl +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>ChildControl ID: </em>" + calendarPart.ChildControl.ID +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>ChildControl Type: </em>" + calendarPart.ChildControl.GetType().Name +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>GenericWebPart ID: </em>" + calendarPart.ID +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>GenericWebPart Type: </em>" + calendarPart.GetType().Name +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>GenericWebPart Parent ID: </em>" + calendarPart.Parent.ID;

  Label3.Text =
    @"<h3>BulletedList GenericWebPart Properties</h3>" +
    "<em>Title: </em>" + listPart.Title +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>CatalogIconImageUrl:  </em>" + listPart.CatalogIconImageUrl +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>TitleUrl: </em>" + listPart.TitleUrl +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>Decription: </em>" + listPart.Description +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>TitleIconImageUrl: </em>" + listPart.TitleIconImageUrl +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>ChildControl ID: </em>" + listPart.ChildControl.ID +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>ChildControl Type: </em>" + listPart.ChildControl.GetType().Name +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>GenericWebPart ID: </em>" + listPart.ID +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>GenericWebPart Type: </em>" + listPart.GetType().Name +
    "<br />" +
    "<em>GenericWebPart Parent ID: </em>" + listPart.Parent.ID;
}
