How To Remove The HTML White Space in ASP.NET C#

Remove the HTML white space at runtime will reduce the HTML page size so the web page will be loading faster. This method is for SEO purposes.

Add the code below to any ASPX.CS page or Master page, then browse the page to see the magic.

 

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;


//BEGIN: Removing HTML white Space. #####################################################################
        private static readonly Regex REGEX_BETWEEN_TAGS = new Regex(@">\s+<", RegexOptions.Compiled);
        private static readonly Regex REGEX_LINE_BREAKS = new Regex(@"\n\s+", RegexOptions.Compiled);

        protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
        {
            using (HtmlTextWriter htmlwriter = new HtmlTextWriter(new System.IO.StringWriter()))
            {
                base.Render(htmlwriter);
                string html = htmlwriter.InnerWriter.ToString();

                html = REGEX_BETWEEN_TAGS.Replace(html, "> <");
                html = REGEX_LINE_BREAKS.Replace(html, string.Empty);

                writer.Write(html.Trim());
            }
        }
