UpdatePanel.RenderMode UpdatePanel.RenderMode UpdatePanel.RenderMode UpdatePanel.RenderMode Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether an UpdatePanel control's content is enclosed in an HTML <div> or <span> element.

public:
 property System::Web::UI::UpdatePanelRenderMode RenderMode { System::Web::UI::UpdatePanelRenderMode get(); void set(System::Web::UI::UpdatePanelRenderMode value); };
public System.Web.UI.UpdatePanelRenderMode RenderMode { get; set; }
member this.RenderMode : System.Web.UI.UpdatePanelRenderMode with get, set
Public Property RenderMode As UpdatePanelRenderMode

Property Value

One of the UpdatePanelRenderMode values. The default is Block so that the content of the panel is enclosed in an HTML <div> element.

Examples

The following example shows how to set the RenderMode property declaratively. The UpdatePanel control named UpdatePanel1 is rendered in an HTML <span> element. If the RenderMode property were set to Block, the resulting paragraph would appear disjointed because of the way in which the HTML <div> element is rendered.
