Definition

protected:
 virtual System::Collections::ICollection ^ CreateColumns(System::Web::UI::WebControls::PagedDataSource ^ dataSource, bool useDataSource);
protected virtual System.Collections.ICollection CreateColumns (System.Web.UI.WebControls.PagedDataSource dataSource, bool useDataSource);
abstract member CreateColumns : System.Web.UI.WebControls.PagedDataSource * bool -> System.Collections.ICollection
override this.CreateColumns : System.Web.UI.WebControls.PagedDataSource * bool -> System.Collections.ICollection
Protected Overridable Function CreateColumns (dataSource As PagedDataSource, useDataSource As Boolean) As ICollection

Parameters

dataSource
PagedDataSource

A PagedDataSource that represents the data source.

useDataSource
Boolean

true to use the data source specified by the dataSource parameter; otherwise, false.

Returns

ICollection

A ICollection that contains the fields used to build the control hierarchy.

Remarks

When the AutoGenerateColumns property is set to true, a bound column field is automatically created for each field in the data source. Each bound column field is then displayed as a row in the GridView control in the order that the fields appear in the data source. The CreateColumns method is used to create the automatically generated column fields.

Note

This method is used primarily by control developers to extend the GridView control.
