Part.Controls Property

Definition

Gets a ControlCollection object that contains the child controls for a specified server control in the user interface hierarchy.

public:
 virtual property System::Web::UI::ControlCollection ^ Controls { System::Web::UI::ControlCollection ^ get(); };
public override System.Web.UI.ControlCollection Controls { get; }
member this.Controls : System.Web.UI.ControlCollection
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property Controls As ControlCollection

Property Value

ControlCollection

The collection of child controls for the specified server control.

Remarks

On an ASP.NET page, when controls are added declaratively between the opening and closing tags of a server control, ASP.NET automatically adds the controls to the containing server control's ControlCollection object. Any HTML tags or text strings that are not processed on the server are treated as LiteralControl objects. These are added to the collection like other server controls.

The Controls property allows you programmatic access to the instance of the ControlCollection class for any server control. You can add controls to the collection, remove controls from the collection, or iterate through the server controls in the collection.
