Filter Expression Class
Modifies a database query by using a value from specified filter control.
public ref class DynamicFilterExpression : System::Web::UI::WebControls::Expressions::DataSourceExpression
public class DynamicFilterExpression : System.Web.UI.WebControls.Expressions.DataSourceExpression
type DynamicFilterExpression = class inherit DataSourceExpression
Public Class DynamicFilterExpression Inherits DataSourceExpression
The following example shows how to use the DynamicFilterExpression control to select a filter template in a page. The filter template is selected by the DynamicFilter control that is identified by DynamicFilterExpression control through its
<asp:QueryExtender ID="QueryExtender1" TargetControlID="GridDataSource" runat="server"> <asp:DynamicFilterExpression ControlID="CategoryFilterID" /> </asp:QueryExtender>
The DynamicFilterExpression class enables you to modify a database query using the values that are assigned in a DynamicFilter control. This control delegates the task of building of the IQueryable query to a specialized control such as QueryableFilterRepeater control or DynamicFilter control.
The filter controls in turn delegate the building of the query to the filter template that they reference. The query is then executed by the data source control that is referenced by the QueryExtender control.
To use the DynamicFilterExpression class in a page, you follow these steps:
Add a QueryExtender control to the page.
TargetControlIDproperty of the QueryExtender control to reference the data source control.
ControlIDproperty of the DynamicFilterExpression object to reference the filter control.
In the previous steps it is assumed that the related filter controls, data-bound controls, and data source control are defined in the page.
Initializes a new instance of the DynamicFilterExpression class.
Gets the HttpContext instance of the owner control.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
Gets or sets the filter control identifier.
Gets the data source object that is associated with the owner control.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
Gets a value that indicates whether a data source expression object is tracking its view state changes.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
Gets the owner control.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
Gets an instance of the StateBag class that contains the current view state information.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object)
Serves as the default hash function.(Inherited from Object)
Gets the modified query using the current filter value.
Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object)
Loads the state of the values in the DataSourceExpression object that must be persisted.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object)
Saves the current view state of the DataSourceExpression object.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
|SetContext(Control, HttpContext, IQueryableDataSource)||
Initializes the expression with data source information.
Marks the DataSourceExpression object so that its state will be saved in view state.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object)
Explicit Interface Implementations
When implemented by a class, gets a value that indicates whether a data source expression object is tracking its view state changes.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
When implemented by a class, loads the previously saved view state of the data source expression object.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
When implemented by a class, saves the current view state of the DataSourceExpression object.(Inherited from DataSourceExpression)
