skmLinkButton - Easily Displaying Text in the Browser's Status Bar
I was perusing the microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet.webcontrols newsgroup yesterday and stumbled upon this question by Brian Hoops:
Is there a way within asp to modify what the status bar text reads when the user hovers above the text for a link-button.
I responded to Brian's question, informing him that there were no built-in properties of the LinkButton Web control that would provide this functionality, and that adding said functionality could be accomplished in one of two ways:
For the heck of it I whipped up a custom control called skmLinkButton that extended the LinkButton class and provided the desired behavior. (Additionally, skmLinkButton includes the ability to add a confirm dialog box, similar to Andy Smith's ConfirmedButtons set of controls.)
skmLinkButton, along with my other open-source ASP.NET server controls, is listed on my Code Projects page.
