why there is need of explicit type casting while getting value from sender of linkbutton

Recommended Posts

case1
--------
Protected Sub lnkResdept_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
Dim resdept As String
resdept = sender.text
End Sub
case2
--------
Protected Sub lnkResdept_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
resdept= CType(sender, LinkButton).Text
end sub
I am not able to understand difference between these two cases, case1 produces the linkbutton's value for example C1500017 and case2 also produces same result. I am not able to understand why explicit type casting is done in case2.
thanks,
Rhishikesh

It's just 2 ways to do the same thing. You can either access the text property, or you can convert the sender object to a Text type (which probably accesses the text property behind the scenes).
