The System.Web.UI.PersistChildrenAttribute is used in combination with the System.Web.UI.ParseChildrenAttribute to determine how nested content of a control is interpreted. If System.Web.UI.PersistChildrenAttribute is true and System.Web.UI.ParseChildrenAttribute is false, the nested content contained within an ASP.NET server control is persisted as controls. If System.Web.UI.PersistChildrenAttribute is false and System.Web.UI.ParseChildrenAttribute is true, the nested content is persisted as properties of the server control.
