Whenever I had to add a string to a web controls control collection I’ve always used
the Literal control like this:
= new Literal();
= "hello world";
I have always thought a Literal was
too cumbersome to use for a simple thing like adding a string to a controls control
collection. Then, the other day, I found the LiteralControl while
browsing through the MSDN docs and that my friends are a real treat. It lives in the System.Web.UI namespace
and it adds great value. You can use it to achieve the same task as the one above, but in a more natural way.
It’s much cleaner, much nicer and much simpler. Now I can’t live without it.* $4.95/month ASP.NET Hosting with FREE SQL 2012 DB! – Click Here!
