ASPxTextBoxBase.EncodeHtml Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the editor's element content is rendered as pure HTML, or HTML markers are stripped out.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v18.2.dll


public override bool EncodeHtml { get; set; }
Public Overrides Property EncodeHtml As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true if the HTML code contained within the editor's element content is not executed and is converted into the corresponding text for display purposes, false if the editor's elements content can contain pure HTML code.


If the EncodeHtml property is set to true, a text box editor's element content (for example, caption) that contains HTML code is parsed so that any angle bracket (the characters < and >) of HTML tags is converted to specific symbols (&lt; and &gt;). This allows the HTML code to be represented on the page as text. If this property is set to false, the content of the editor's element that contains HTML tags is not specifically parsed and is rendered as pure HTML markup. This allows the result of the HTML code to be displayed within the editor's element (for example, caption).

Refer to the HTML Encoding topic for more information on DevExpress ASP.NET controls encoding.
