TableCallback TableCallback TableCallback TableCallback Delegate

Definition

References the method to call when retrieving table data from a provider.

public delegate void TableCallback(ICollection ^ tableData);
public delegate void TableCallback(ICollection tableData);
type TableCallback = delegate of ICollection -> unit
Public Delegate Sub TableCallback(tableData As ICollection)

Parameters

tableData
ICollection ICollection ICollection ICollection

The data to retrieve from the provider.

Inheritance

Examples

The following code example contains a Web Parts control named TableProviderWebPart that serves as a provider of data in the form of a table. The control includes an implementation of the GetTableData method, which receives a parameter of type TableCallback. This method calls the method represented by the TableCallback delegate passing the table data.

Remarks

When a Web Parts control implements the IWebPartTable interface and serves as a provider in a Web Parts connection, the consumer or transformer must retrieve and process the table data from the provider. The TableCallback delegate represents the method to call for processing the provider data.

The GetTableData method contains a TableCallback delegate parameter.

Extension Methods

GetMethodInfo(Delegate) GetMethodInfo(Delegate) GetMethodInfo(Delegate) GetMethodInfo(Delegate)

Gets an object that represents the method represented by the specified delegate.
