Return Value

Html string for text box.


<>lcName<> The name/id of the HTML control.

<>lcValue<> The assigned string value for the control. Note that you can apply complex expressions to provide formatting here.

On a Postback operation lcValue is automatically read from Request.Form() if available

You can override this behavior, and always force the value to be used by postfixing with ":FORCED" to the end of the value string.

<>lcAttributes<> Any HTML attributes you want to specify like styles or classes or anything else.


<%= HtmlTextArea("txtNotes",poCustomer.oData.Notes,;
                [class="primaryinput" style="background: lightcyan"]) %>
