Property Value

A value that is used for display in the UI.


The following example shows how to set the name property.

public partial class Employee {  
    public class EmployeeMD {  
        [Display(Name = "Last Name", Order = -9,   
        Prompt = "Enter Last Name", Description="Emp Last Name")]  
        public object LastName { get; set; }  

        [Display(Name = "Manager", AutoGenerateFilter=false)]  
        public object Employee1 { get; set; }  
<MetadataType(GetType(EmployeeMD))>  _  
Public Class Employee  

    Public Class EmployeeMD  

        <Display(Name:="Last Name", Order:=-9, _  
           Prompt:="Enter Last Name", Description:="Emp Last Name")>  _  
        Public Property LastName As Object  
        End Property  

        <Display(Name:="Manager", AutoGenerateFilter:=false)>  _  
        Public Property Employee1 As Object  
        End Property  
    End Class  
End Class  


Do not use this property to get the value of the Name property. Use the GetName method instead.

The name is typically used as the field label for a UI element that is bound to the property that is annotated with this attribute. The Dynamic Data List.aspx, ListDetails.aspx, and Details.aspx page templates use the Name property for the field label. A null value or empty string is valid.
