Change Tag

Changes a <tag></tag> pair to a user-specified tag.

Purpose

Enables you to change the tag type by typing the new name once instead of having to change it for both opening and closing tags.

Availability

Available from the context menus or via shortcuts:

  • when the caret is on a tag name, either within the opening or closing tag.
Note

The Change Tag code provider is not available in Visual Studio 2012.

Notes

  • This code provider uses Linked Identifiers to allow you to change opening and closing tag names at once.

Example

<div id="element1"><asp:Button runat="server" Text="Button1"></div>

Result:

<span id="element1"><asp:Button runat="server" Text="Button1"></span>
