Remarks

The Text property is used to display a caption next to each check box in a CheckBoxField object. If the Text property is set to an empty string, no caption is displayed.

Note

All check boxes in the CheckBoxField object share the same caption.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and Globalization and Localization.
