Examples

This section contains two code examples. The first code example shows how to inherit from the WebControl class to create a custom control named AttribRender that overrides the Render method. The second code example shows how to use the custom control in an ASP.NET Web page.

The following example shows how to create a custom control named AttribRender that overrides the Render method of the WebControl class without calling the Render method of the base class. Instead, AttribRender invokes the Render method.

/* Create a custom WebControl class, named AttribRender, that overrides 
   the Render method to write two introductory strings. Then call the
   AttributeCollection.Render method, which allows the control to write the
   attribute values that are added to it when it is included in a page.

The following example shows how to use the AttribRender custom control in a Web page. It assumes that the code file for the custom control is in the App_Code folder for the application.
