ASP.NET HTML Server Controls

HTML server controls are HTML elements that contain attributes to accessible at server side. By default, HTML elements on an ASP.NET Web page are not available to the server. These components are treated as simple text and pass through to the browser. We can convert an HTML element to server control by adding a runat="server" and an id attribute to the component.

Now, we can easily access it at code behind.


All the HTML Server controls can be accessed through the Request object.

HTML Components

The following table contains commonly used HTML components.

Button It is used to create HTML button.
Reset Button It is used to reset all HTML form elements.
