 property System::String ^ Target { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
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

Renders the content in

_blank A new window without frames.

_parent The immediate frameset parent.

_search The search pane.

_self The frame with focus.

_top The full window without frames.


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

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

Remarks

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

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 TreeView must be XHTML 1.1 compliant. For more information, see XHTML Standards in Visual Studio and ASP.NET.

When creating accessible Web pages, you should avoid using the Target property to target another window. For more information, see ASP.NET Controls and Accessibility.

The value of this property is stored in view state.
