HtmlTextWriter Constructor (TextWriter^, String^)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

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)

	TextWriter^ writer,
	String^ tabString


Type: System.IO::TextWriter^

The TextWriter that renders the markup content.

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 StyledLabelHtmlWriter class to render its content.
public ref class MyPage: public Page
   virtual HtmlTextWriter^ CreateHtmlTextWriter( TextWriter^ writer ) override
      return gcnew HtmlStyledLabelWriter( writer );
