member this.Indent : int with get, set
Public Property Indent As Integer

Property Value

The number of tab positions to indent each line.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to increment the value that is assigned to the Indent property when attributes have been added to the opening tag of a <span> element and the RenderBeginTag method has been called. This increases the indentation for any markup that is rendered inside the <span> element.

// Set attributes and values along with attributes and styles  
// attribute defined for a <span> element.
writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Onclick, "alert('Hello');");
writer.AddAttribute("CustomAttribute", "CustomAttributeValue");
writer.AddStyleAttribute(HtmlTextWriterStyle.Color, "Red");
writer.AddStyleAttribute("Customstyle", "CustomStyleValue");
writer.RenderBeginTag(HtmlTextWriterTag.Span);
// Create a space and indent the markup inside the 
// <span> element.
writer.WriteLine();
writer.Indent++;
' Set attributes and values along with attributes and styles
' attribute defined for a <span> element.
writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Onclick, "alert('Hello');")
writer.AddAttribute("CustomAttribute", "CustomAttributeValue")
writer.AddStyleAttribute(HtmlTextWriterStyle.Color, "Red")
writer.AddStyleAttribute("CustomStyle", "CustomStyleValue")
writer.RenderBeginTag(HtmlTextWriterTag.Span)

'  Create a space and indent the markup inside the 
' <span> element.
writer.WriteLine()
writer.Indent += 1

Remarks

Indentation is performed by writing the string that is specified by the tabString parameter of the HtmlTextWriter(TextWriter, String) constructor the number of times that are specified by the Indent property.

If the Indent property is set to a negative value, it is changed to 0 before being saved.
