member this.AlternateTextField : string with get, set
Public Property AlternateTextField As String

The name that identifies the field where the alternate text for an advertisement is stored. The default value is "AlternateText."

Examples

The following code example demonstrates using the AlternateTextField property to specify a custom data field. The NavigateUrlField, ImageUrlField, and AlternateTextField properties are used to dynamically select a custom field to use in place of the NavigateUrl, ImageUrl, and AlternateText attributes. This example uses a device filter to indicate that custom fields should be used for Wireless Application Protocol (WAP)-enabled devices.

    <WmlAlternateText>Windows Mobile Developer Site</WmlAlternateText>

    <AlternateText>MSDN</AlternateText>

    <WmlImageUrl>~/Images/mobileAd2.jpg</WmlImageUrl>  
    <WmlNavigateUrl>https://msdn.microsoft.com/mobility/</WmlNavigateUrl>  
    <WmlAlternateText>Windows Mobile Developer Site</WmlAlternateText>  
  </Ad>  
</Advertisements>  

Remarks

The AlternateTextField property is used to select a custom data field to use in place of the AlternateText attribute for an advertisement. Like AlternateText, this custom field is defined in the XML file that contains advertisement information.
