control text

Sets or retrieves the text displayed in the control. Does not encode the html controls characters (<, >, ", &) - the text containing correct html markup will be displayed as html.

var value = obj.getControlText(); 
obj.setControlText(value);        

obj.onControlTextChanging = function(value){...}; 
obj.onControlTextChanged = function(value){...}; 
obj.onControlTextError = function(value){...};

document.write(obj);

Button

obj.setControlText("Search");
document.write(obj);

Remarks

When some of the html controls characters (<, >, ", &) should appear as text - convert them into html entity codes (&lt;, &gt;, &quot;, &amp;).
