Remarks

The HtmlSelectBuilder control interacts with the page parser to build an HtmlSelect control. Use the HtmlSelectBuilder control to customize the parsing of an HtmlSelect control.

The AllowWhitespaceLiterals property is set to false so that white space is always ignored. Use the GetChildControlType method to determine the type of the HtmlSelect control's child controls.

Notes to Inheritors

To create a custom control builder for an HtmlSelect control, you need to inherit from this class.

Constructors

HtmlSelectBuilder() HtmlSelectBuilder() HtmlSelectBuilder() HtmlSelectBuilder()

Initializes a new instance of the HtmlSelectBuilder class.

Methods

AllowWhitespaceLiterals() AllowWhitespaceLiterals() AllowWhitespaceLiterals() AllowWhitespaceLiterals()

Determines whether the white space literals in an HtmlSelect control are to be processed or ignored.

AppendLiteralString(String) AppendLiteralString(String) AppendLiteralString(String) AppendLiteralString(String)

Adds the specified literal content to a control. This method is called by the ASP.NET page framework.

(Inherited from ControlBuilder)

Called by the parser to inform the builder that the parsing of the control's opening and closing tags is complete.

(Inherited from ControlBuilder)
Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
GetChildControlType(String, IDictionary) GetChildControlType(String, IDictionary) GetChildControlType(String, IDictionary) GetChildControlType(String, IDictionary)

Obtains the Type for the HtmlSelect control's child controls.

GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function.

(Inherited from Object)

Determines if a control has both an opening and closing tag. This method is called by the ASP.NET page framework.

(Inherited from ControlBuilder)
HtmlDecodeLiterals() HtmlDecodeLiterals() HtmlDecodeLiterals() HtmlDecodeLiterals()

Determines whether the literal string of an HTML control must be HTML decoded. This method is called by the ASP.NET page framework.

(Inherited from ControlBuilder)
