public string Target { get; set; }
member this.Target : string with get, set
Public Property Target As String

Property Value

The target window or frame in which to display the linked Web page content. Values must begin with a letter in the range of A through Z (case-insensitive), except for certain special values that begin with an underscore, as shown in the following table.

Target value

Description

_blank Renders the content in a new window without frames.

_parent Renders the content in the immediate frameset parent.

_search Renders the content in the search pane.

_self Renders the content in the frame with focus.

_top Renders the content in the full window without frames.


Check your browser documentation to determine whether the _search value is supported. For example, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and later support the _search target value.

The default value is an empty string (""), which refreshes the window or frame with focus.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to set up the frames for the next example.

Remarks

Use the Target property to specify the window or frame in which to display the Web content linked to a node when that node is clicked.

Note

Setting this property overrides the Target property of the TreeView control.

Note

The Target property renders as a target attribute. The target attribute on anchor elements is not allowed in the XHTML 1.1 document type definition. Do not set the Target property if the rendered output for the TreeNode object must be XHTML 1.1-compliant. For more information, see XHTML Standards in Visual Studio and ASP.NET.

When creating accessible Web pages, it is strongly recommended you avoid using the Target property to target another window. For more information, see NIB: ASP.NET Accessibility.

The value of this property is stored in view state.
