NonVisualControlAttribute NonVisualControlAttribute NonVisualControlAttribute NonVisualControlAttribute Class

Definition

Defines the attribute that indicates whether a control is treated as a visual or non-visual control during design time. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class NonVisualControlAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Class)]
public sealed class NonVisualControlAttribute : Attribute
type NonVisualControlAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute
Public NotInheritable Class NonVisualControlAttribute

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how you can apply the NonVisualControlAttribute attribute to a class. In this example, the default NonVisualControlAttribute attribute is applied to a data source control. This is equivalent to the NonVisual field.

[NonVisualControlAttribute()]
public class CustomNonVisualControl : Control
{
    // Add an implementation of custom non-visual control.
}
<NonVisualControlAttribute()> _
Public Class CustomNonVisualControl
    Inherits Control

    ' Add an implementation of custom non-visual control.

End Class

Remarks

The NonVisualControlAttribute attribute is applied to controls that are not rendered to the client, such as data source controls and the WebPartManager control. During design time, a page developer might decide to hide all non-visual controls. The designer would mark as invisible all of the controls with the NonVisualControlAttribute attribute set to true.

Examples of controls that employ the NonVisualControlAttribute attribute are DataSourceControl, HierarchicalDataSourceControl, HiddenField, and WebPartManager.

Constructors

NonVisualControlAttribute() NonVisualControlAttribute() NonVisualControlAttribute() NonVisualControlAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the NonVisualControlAttribute class.

NonVisualControlAttribute(Boolean) NonVisualControlAttribute(Boolean) NonVisualControlAttribute(Boolean) NonVisualControlAttribute(Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the NonVisualControlAttribute class, using the specified Boolean value to determine whether the attribute represents a visual or non-visual control.

Fields

Default Default Default Default

Returns a NonVisualControlAttribute instance that represents the application-defined default value of the attribute. This field is read-only.

NonVisual NonVisual NonVisual NonVisual

Returns a NonVisualControlAttribute instance that is applied to a Web control to be treated as a non-visual control during design time. This field is read-only.

Visual Visual Visual Visual

Gets a NonVisualControlAttribute instance that is applied to a Web control to be treated as a visual control during design time.

Properties
