Wizard.SkipLinkText Property

Gets or sets a value that is used to render alternate text that notifies screen readers to skip the content in the sidebar area.

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

public virtual string SkipLinkText { get; set; }
<asp:Wizard SkipLinkText="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string that the Wizard renders as alternate text with an invisible image, as a hint to screen readers. The default is "Skip Navigation Links". The default text for the control is localized based on the current locale for the server.

Use the SkipLinkText property to specify the alternate text for a hidden image that is read by screen readers to provide the ability to skip the content for a sidebar area. The text that you specify provides assistive technology devices with a description of the hidden image that can be used to make the control more accessible.


If the DisplaySideBar property is set to false, the SkipLinkText property does not create a hidden image with alternate text.

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.
