HtmlTextWriter Constructor (TextWriter, String)

Initializes a new instance of the HtmlTextWriter class with a specified tab string character.

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

public HtmlTextWriter(
	TextWriter writer,
	string tabString
)

Parameters

writer
Type: System.IO.TextWriter

The TextWriter that renders the markup content.

tabString
Type: System.String

The string to use to render a line indentation.

The HtmlTextWriter overload of the HtmlTextWriter(TextWriter, String) constructor uses tabString when indentation of a line is necessary. It calls the TextWriter.TextWriter(IFormatProvider) base constructor to initialize the new instance.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the HtmlTextWriter(TextWriter) constructor to create a custom HtmlTextWriter object named StyledLabelHtmlWriter. When the MyPage custom class, which is derived from the Page class, is requested by a client browser, it uses the StyledLabelHtmlWriter class to render its content to the output stream.

// A custom class that overrides its CreateHtmlTextWriter method. 
// This page uses the HtmlStyledLabelWriter class to render its content.

    Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
[AspNetHostingPermission(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand,
    Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public class MyPage : Page
{
    protected override HtmlTextWriter CreateHtmlTextWriter(TextWriter writer)
    {
        return new HtmlStyledLabelWriter(writer);
    }

}
