How to display html tags in a Label in

Show HTML tags on a Label
The Label class Represents a label control, which displays text on a Web page. The developers can use the Label control to display text in a set location on the web page. Unlike static text, c# developers can customize the displayed text through the Text property.

The following c# tutorial code demonstrates how we can display HTML tags in a Label web server control. To show HTML tags on a Label control, the c# developers have to encode HTML tags.

The Server HTMLEncode() method applies HTML encoding to a specified string. The HTMLEncode() method is very useful and a quick method of encoding form data and other client request data before using it in a Web application. Encoding data converts potentially unsafe characters to their HTML-encoded equivalent.

The Server HTMLEncode() method has a parameter named string which specifies the string to encode. The Server HTMLEncode() method has no return values.

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        Label1.Text = Server.HtmlEncode("<form id='form1' runat='server'>");
        Label1.Text += "<br />";
        Label1.Text += Server.HtmlEncode("<title> example - label display html</title>");
