Displaying dynamic content in an ASP.NET TextBox control

Displaying dynamic content in an ASP.NET TextBox control

You can display dynamic content in ASP.NET TextBox form controls.

Before you begin, you must define a DataSet or other source of dynamic content for the TextBox. For more information, see Defining a recordset.

To make an ASP.NET TextBox dynamic:

  1. In Design view, select the TextBox on your page.
  2. In the Property inspector, click the lightning bolt icon beside the Text text box.

    The Dynamic Data dialog box appears.

  3. Select the recordset column that will supply a value to the TextBox object and click OK.

The TextBox control will display the dynamic content when the page is viewed in a browser.
