Gets or sets the text associated with this control.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
The property of the control is used differently by each derived class. For example the property of a Form is displayed in the title bar at the top of the form, is fairly small in character count, and usually displays the application or document name. However, the property of a RichTextBox can be large and can include numerous nonvisual characters used to format the text. For example, the text displayed in a RichTextBox can be formatted by adjusting the Font properties, or by the addition of spaces or tab characters to align the text.Notes to Inheritors:
When overriding the property in a derived class, use the base class's property to extend the base implementation. Otherwise, you must provide all the implementation. You are not required to override both the get and set accessors of the property; you can override only one if needed.
The following code example creates a GroupBox and sets some of its common properties. The example creates a TextBox and sets its Location within the group box. Next, it sets the property of the group box, and docks the group box to the top of the form. Lastly, it disables the group box by setting the Enabled property to false, which causes all controls contained within the group box to be disabled.
