WebZone.HasFooter Property


Gets a value indicating whether a zone has a footer area.

 virtual property bool HasFooter { bool get(); };
protected virtual bool HasFooter { get; }
member this.HasFooter : bool
Protected Overridable ReadOnly Property HasFooter As Boolean

Property Value


true if the zone has a footer area; otherwise, false. The default value is true.


The HasFooter property is primarily used by control developers who are creating custom zones. It exists as a flag so that the Web Parts control set renders a footer only when appropriate for a zone. For example, the HasFooter property overrides this property and returns false, so that a footer is not rendered for a WebPartZone control.

Tool zones (zones that derive indirectly from the WebZone class by means of the ToolZone class, such as EditorZone and CatalogZone) must have footers so that, for example, they can render common user interface (UI) verbs with buttons such as OK, Apply, and Cancel at the bottom of the zone. Because the HasFooter property is true by default, tool zones do not need to override the property.

Notes to Inheritors

If you are creating a custom tool zone that derives from ToolZone, you can override the RenderFooter(HtmlTextWriter) method and provide rendering for your zone's footer.
