BindingList<T>.SupportsSearchingCore Property

Definition

Gets a value indicating whether the list supports searching.

protected:
 virtual property bool SupportsSearchingCore { bool get(); };
protected virtual bool SupportsSearchingCore { get; }
member this.SupportsSearchingCore : bool
Protected Overridable ReadOnly Property SupportsSearchingCore As Boolean

Property Value

true if the list supports searching; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SupportsSearchingCore member.

    public class MyFontList : BindingList<Font>
    {

        protected override bool SupportsSearchingCore
        {
            get { return true; }
        }
        protected override int FindCore(PropertyDescriptor prop, object key)
        {
            // Ignore the prop value and search by family name.
            for (int i = 0; i < Count; ++i)
            {
                if (Items[i].FontFamily.Name.ToLower() == ((string)key).ToLower())
                    return i;

            }
            return -1;
        }


    }
  
}
Public Class MyFontList
    Inherits BindingList(Of Font)

    Protected Overrides ReadOnly Property SupportsSearchingCore() As Boolean
        Get
            Return True
        End Get
    End Property
    
    Protected Overrides Function FindCore(ByVal prop As PropertyDescriptor, _
        ByVal key As Object) As Integer
        ' Ignore the prop value and search by family name.
        Dim i As Integer
        While i < Count
            If Items(i).FontFamily.Name.ToLower() = CStr(key).ToLower() Then
                Return i
            End If
            i += 1
        End While

        Return -1
    End Function
End Class

Remarks

The BindingList<T> class does not provide a base implementation of searching, so SupportsSearchingCore always returns false by default. For more information about implementing searching, see the IBindingList.Find method.
