HtmlTextWriter.OutputTabs HtmlTextWriter.OutputTabs HtmlTextWriter.OutputTabs HtmlTextWriter.OutputTabs Method

Definition

Writes a series of tab strings that represent the indentation level for a line of markup characters.

protected:
 virtual void OutputTabs();
protected virtual void OutputTabs ();
abstract member OutputTabs : unit -> unit
override this.OutputTabs : unit -> unit
Protected Overridable Sub OutputTabs ()

Examples

The following code example shows how to override the OutputTabs method in a class that is derived from the HtmlTextWriter class. The OutputTabs override always uses the DefaultTabString constant to perform the indentation.

// Override the OutputTabs method to set the tab to
// the number of spaces defined by the Indent variable.
virtual void OutputTabs() override
{
   
   // Output the DefaultTabString for the number
   // of times specified in the Indent property.
   for ( int i = 0; i < Indent; i++ )
      Write( DefaultTabString );
   __super::OutputTabs();
}
// Override the OutputTabs method to set the tab to
// the number of spaces defined by the Indent variable.      
protected override void OutputTabs()
{
    // Output the DefaultTabString for the number
    // of times specified in the Indent property.
    for (int i = 0; i < Indent; i++)
        Write(DefaultTabString);
    base.OutputTabs();
}
' Override the OutputTabs method to set the tab to
' the number of spaces defined by the Indent variable.   
Protected Overrides Sub OutputTabs()
    ' Output the DefaultTabString for the number
    ' of times specified in the Indent property.
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To Indent - 1
        Write(DefaultTabString)
    Next i
    MyBase.OutputTabs()
End Sub

Remarks

The OutputTabs method uses the Indent property to determine how many tab strings to write to obtain the desired indentation.

The tab string is specified with the HtmlTextWriter constructor. If no tab string is specified, the DefaultTabString constant (\t) is used.
