property bool System::ComponentModel::IListSource::ContainsListCollection { bool get(); };

 ReadOnly Property ContainsListCollection As Boolean Implements IListSource.ContainsListCollection

Property Value

Remarks

This property is used to determine whether the current object can be used as a source of one or more lists of data. Data source controls encapsulate their lists of data as DataSourceView objects; therefore, when associated with one or more DataSourceView objects, a DataSourceControl control represents a list source object and the property returns true.

This property calls the static ListSourceHelper.ContainsListCollection method to determine whether the current data source control can be used as a source of data. The ListSourceHelper class determines whether the GetViewNames method returns a valid collection of view names. If it does, this property returns true. If GetViewNames returns null, which is the default implementation of the DataSourceControl class, the method returns false.
