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

You can use a Literal control to put plain text on a page (optionally, with embedded HTML markup tags). In this respect, the Literal control is somewhat like the Label control, except it cannot use any special formatting, styles, or fonts.

Do not confuse the Literal control with the System.Web.UI.LiteralControl class. The latter is used by ASP.NET to represent static HTML content found on a web page that will not be made available to your code as a server-side control.

public class Literal : System.Web.UI.Control {
// Public Constructors
   public Literal( );
// Public Instance Properties
   public string Text{set; get; }
// Protected Instance Methods
   protected override void AddParsedSubObject(object obj);      // overrides System.Web.UI.Control
   protected override ControlCollection CreateControlCollection( );   // overrides System.Web.UI.Control
   protected override void Render(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter output);    // overrides System.Web.UI.Control
