HtmlTextWritermarshal by reference, disposable

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

The ASP.NET framework uses this class when writing the client-side HTML for a Web Forms page. It contains a wealth of methods for rendering the appropriate content, and derives from the more generic System.IO.TextWriter. Typically, you will not use this class directly in your code, unless you are a control developer.

When deriving custom controls from Control or System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl, you can override the Render( ) or RenderContents( ) method and create the control's output by using the supplied HtmlTextWriter. Commonly used methods include Write( ), which can output text or HTML tags, AddStyleAttribute( ), which specifies a CSS style attribute for the next tag, and RenderBeginTag( ) and RenderEndTag( ), which make it easy to insert open and closing HTML tags while keeping the code readable. The HtmlTextWriter also performs automatic indentation of the HTML output.
