how to access the text property of a label using attributes.add

actually i have written the following code

THIS code is written in .cs file where iam trying to get reference of the control from the .aspx page

HttpContext.Current.Session["selected"] = dt;
Page page = HttpContext.Current.Handler as Page;
WebControl testcontrol = (WebControl)page.FindControl("lblHierarchy");


the above code works fine but the text is shown as "" (blank)

any help would be appreciated

Control.Attributes.Add method is used to add the client side attribute of the control not server side property.

In this case suppose you WebControl has a property called Text and simply use
testcontrol.Text = "SomeText";

// Adding client side attribute. This will not display anything but add Text attribute of the span tag like <span id="txtTest" text="fdasfd">RAN</span>

Label lbl = (Label) Page.FindControl("txtTest");
lbl.Attributes.Add("text", "fdasfd");

// Adding server side attribute
lbl.Text = "RAN";
