public:
 AutoGeneratedField(System::String ^ dataField);
public AutoGeneratedField (string dataField);

Public Sub New (dataField As String)

Parameters

dataField
String

The name of the data field to bind to the AutoGeneratedField.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use this constructor to create a new instance of the AutoGeneratedField class when implementing a custom control that derives from the DetailsView control.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Text;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Security.Permissions;
using System.Web;

namespace Samples.AspNet.CS.Controls
{
      
    [AspNetHostingPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Level=AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
    [AspNetHostingPermission(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Level=AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
    public class SimpleCustomControl : DetailsView
    {

        protected override AutoGeneratedField CreateAutoGeneratedRow(AutoGeneratedFieldProperties fieldProperties) 
        {

            // Create an AutoGeneratedField object.
            AutoGeneratedField field = new AutoGeneratedField(fieldProperties.DataField);

            // Set the properties of the AutoGeneratedField using
            // the values from the AutoGeneratedFieldProperties 
            // object contained in the fieldProperties parameter.
            ((IStateManager)field).TrackViewState();
            field.HeaderText = fieldProperties.Name;
            field.SortExpression = fieldProperties.Name;
            field.ReadOnly = fieldProperties.IsReadOnly;
            field.DataType = fieldProperties.Type;

            return field;
        }
        
    }
}

Namespace Samples.AspNet.VB.Controls

    <AspNetHostingPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Level:=AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal), AspNetHostingPermission(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Level:=AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)> Public Class SimpleCustomControl
        Inherits System.Web.UI.WebControls.DetailsView

        Protected Overrides Function CreateAutoGeneratedRow(ByVal fieldProperties As AutoGeneratedFieldProperties) As AutoGeneratedField

            ' Create an AutoGeneratedField object.
            Dim field As New AutoGeneratedField(fieldProperties.DataField)

            ' Set the properties of the AutoGeneratedField using
            ' the values from the AutoGeneratedFieldProperties 
            ' object contained in the fieldProperties parameter.
            CType(field, IStateManager).TrackViewState()
            field.HeaderText = fieldProperties.Name
            field.SortExpression = fieldProperties.Name
            field.ReadOnly = fieldProperties.IsReadOnly
            field.DataType = fieldProperties.Type

            Return field

        End Function

    End Class

End Namespace

Remarks

Use this constructor to initialize a new instance of the AutoGeneratedField class. This constructor is generally used by data-bound controls (such as GridView and DetailsView) when creating automatically generated fields.
