Remarks

Use the GetAttribute method to access an attribute on the HtmlControl server control. All HTML server controls store their attributes in the Control.ViewState property. HTML attributes are treated by the ASP.NET page framework as properties on the HTML server control to which they belong. The GetAttribute method's name parameter is case-insensitive.
