For an object that inherits the Text property from the TextControl class, this property renders the text of the control. The default value is an empty string.

The Text property can be specified by using the Text attribute, or as inner text. If the Text property is specified in both ways, the inner text always takes precedence. However, if the Text property is programmatically set, the inner text is automatically removed and the newly set property takes precedence.
