Notes to Inheritors

When you inherit from the PageAdapter class, you can override the RenderPostBackEvent method if a different format is required for the postback event hyperlink or the browser has other unique requirements. For example, some browsers require the hyperlink text to be nonempty if the link is to render. You can also override RenderPostBackEvent if limited resources prevent including the view state as a URL parameter. The RenderPostBackEvent base method does not write an attribute for softkeyLabel.
