Examples

The following code example demonstrates a class that implements a URL-specific property. In this code example, a UrlPropertyAttribute attribute is applied to the TargetUrl property of the CustomHyperLinkControl class. The attribute sets a specific file filter for ASP.NET files.

public class CustomHyperLinkControl : WebControl
{
    public CustomHyperLinkControl() { }

    // The TargetUrl property represents the URL that 
    // the custom hyperlink control navigates to.
    [UrlProperty("*.aspx")]
    public string TargetUrl
    {
        get
        {
            string s = (string)ViewState["TargetUrl"];
            return ((s == null) ? String.Empty : s);
        }
        set
        {
            ViewState["TargetUrl"] = value;
        }
    }

    // The Text property represents the visible text that 
    // the custom hyperlink control is displayed with.        
    public virtual string Text
    {
        get
        {
            string s = (string)ViewState["Text"];
            return ((s == null) ? String.Empty : s);
        }
        set
        {
            ViewState["Text"] = value;
        }
    }

    // Implement method to render the control.
}

    Public Sub New()
    End Sub

    ' The TargetUrl property represents the URL that 
    ' the custom hyperlink control navigates to.        
    <UrlProperty("*.aspx")> _
    Public Property TargetUrl() As String
        Get
            Dim s As String = CStr(ViewState("TargetUrl"))
            If (s Is Nothing) Then
                Return String.Empty
            Else
                Return s
            End If
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As String)
            ViewState("TargetUrl") = value
        End Set
    End Property

    ' The Text property represents the visible text that 
    ' the custom hyperlink control is displayed with.                
    Public Overridable Property [Text]() As String
        Get
            Dim s As String = CStr(ViewState("Text"))
            If (s Is Nothing) Then
                Return String.Empty
            Else
                Return s
            End If
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As String)
            ViewState("Text") = value
        End Set
    End Property

    ' Implement method to render the control.

End Class

Remarks

The UrlPropertyAttribute attribute is an attribute applied to a control property that represents a URL. In addition to marking a string property as representing a URL, the UrlPropertyAttribute attribute defines the Filter property that identifies specific file types that can be used to filter against the property.

Constructors

UrlPropertyAttribute()

Initializes a new default instance of the UrlPropertyAttribute class.

UrlPropertyAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the UrlPropertyAttribute class, setting the Filter property to the specified string.

Properties

Filter

Gets a file filter associated with the URL-specific property.

TypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.

(Inherited from Attribute)

Methods

Equals(Object)

Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

GetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.

GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
IsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.

(Inherited from Attribute)
Match(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.

(Inherited from Attribute)
MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
ToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.

(Inherited from Object)

Explicit Interface Implementations

_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.

(Inherited from Attribute)
_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.

(Inherited from Attribute)
_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).
