Examples

The following code example creates and uses a custom list control. The example demonstrates how to override the ItemWeight property of a List class to specify a new control weight.

Remarks

A value of -1 indicates that the default weight for the element must be used. The inheriting class must override this property. For further information about overriding this property, see Pagination Support.
