ViewCollection ViewCollection ViewCollection ViewCollection Class

Definition

Represents a collection container that enables a MultiView control to maintain a list of its child controls.

public ref class ViewCollection : System::Web::UI::ControlCollection
public class ViewCollection : System.Web.UI.ControlCollection
type ViewCollection = class
    inherit ControlCollection
Public Class ViewCollection
Inherits ControlCollection

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to programmatically add View controls to a MultiView control. After each View control is created, the AddAt method is used to add the View control to the ViewCollection collection of the MultiView control at the specified index. The Item[Int32] indexer is used to access the ID properties of the View controls stored in the ViewCollection collection and display them to the user.

Remarks

The ViewCollection class represents a collection container that enables a MultiView control to maintain a list of its child controls. A MultiView control can contain only View controls as child controls.

Use the Add method to add a new View control to the ViewCollection collection at the end of an ordinal index array. Use the AddAt method to add a new control at a specific index location. Use the Item[Int32] indexer to get a View control from the ViewCollection collection at a specified index, using simple array notation.
