Hi I need to create a ASP.NET custom control which is inherited from ImageButton. I need to assign Text Property to it so I can diplay the text on top of the image.

Hope you can help.

Add a property with string type (in fact, I think there already is a caption property) and display it's value in html part as for label control.

You could use something like this:

public class MyImageButton : ImageButton
{
    protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
    {
        writer.Write("<table>");
        writer.Write("<tr><td align=\"center\">");
        writer.Write(Context.Server.HtmlEncode(this.Text));
        writer.Write("</td></tr>");
        writer.Write("<tr><td align=\"center\">");
        base.Render(writer);
        writer.Write("</td></tr>");
        writer.Write("</table>");
    }
}
