Definition and Usage

The Text property is used to set or return the text of a ListItem control.

Syntax

It is possible to use the Text or Value properties and the inner HTML text to set the text displayed for an item in the list.

Depending on the combination of the three, different texts are shown and values used. The table below shows all possible combinations and their results:

Tips and Notes

Note: The Text and Value properties have a default value of an empty string. Because of this it is possible to have empty list items.

<form runat="server">
<asp:ListBox runat="server">
<asp:ListItem Text="Item1" />
<asp:ListItem Text="Item2" />
