CustomValidator.AddAttributesToRender(HtmlTextWriter) Method

Definition

Adds the properties of the CustomValidator control to the output stream for rendering on the client.

protected:
 override void AddAttributesToRender(System::Web::UI::HtmlTextWriter ^ writer);
protected override void AddAttributesToRender (System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter writer);
override this.AddAttributesToRender : System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter -> unit
Protected Overrides Sub AddAttributesToRender (writer As HtmlTextWriter)

Parameters

writer
HtmlTextWriter

A HtmlTextWriter that contains the output stream for rendering on the client.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to override the AddAttributesToRender method in a custom server control so that the CustomValidator error message always appears in bold.

Important

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
