This simple article will show you some of the new features present for the most commonly used web controls in ASP.NET
Another new feature in the most web controls is the addition of the AccessKey property. If you have worked with windows forms applications you may of have remembered that you can assign short keys for commonly used commands such as pressing a combination of keys like (Alt + H) for a button on a windows form with Text “&Help” can make call the button’s event handler to execute. A similar feature is now enabled by using this AccessKey property. You can set this property of a Label web control and then set the AssociatedControlID to another web control, in this case if I’ve set this to the ID of a Textbox control then when the page loads this will set the focus to this control. If the AccessKey of a Button web control is set to a value then the client side function for the click event will be called.
I’ve made a simple ASP.NET page with inline server code model and tried to demonstrate these new tweaks. Try this code on you machine and check the new features of these commonly used controls.
