Property Value


The type that contains the template.


The ContainerType class provides information about the context (the control type) in which the EntityTemplateUserControl class is contained. This type can be a list control, such as a GridView or ListView control. It can also be a single-item control, such as a DetailsView or FormView control.

You can customize the behavior of an application depending on the ContainerType value, such as conditionally displaying or hiding specific UI elements.
