The code behind file seems to work very strange

Hello!

I have added a table to the default page using the design mode. In the table
I have added some labels, textBoxes,dropdownlistbox and a button using the
design mode.
When I run this page I can see the table in the browser so all seems to work
fine.

But if I add this statement form1.InnerText = "This is a test";
to the Page_Load statement then the table with the including controls will
not be displayed in the browser.
In the browser will only this text be displayed This is a Test

So my question is how can this row form1.InnerText = "This is a test";
in the Page_Load cause the the table with all the control not to be
displayed ??

It sounds like y ou don't understand what assigning to InnerText is doing.

Everything you are putting on your page is inside form1. Assigning to
InnerText replaces all of the content with the supplied test. So:

form1.InnerText = "This is a test";

is saying replace EVERYTHING inside form1 with the text "This is a test". So
it replaces everything (which includes your table) with the given text. So
the table isn't displayed because its no longer there, you've assigned new
content to the form.

If you want to display a message I suggest you use a label.

Hope this helps.
