System.Web.UI.HtmlControls (system.web.dll)class

This class represents the HTML <input type=text> or <input type=password> tag, which allow the user to enter a single line of text. If you use the password type, the user's input will be masked with the "*" character for display purposes.

Text entered in this control is provided in the Value property. You can specify the width of the textbox by using the Size property and the maximum number of allowed characters by using MaxLength. You can also react to the ServerChange event, which will fire only after a postback is triggered (for example, when the user clicks a submit button).
