The DeclarativeCatalogPart control provides a way for developers to add a set of server controls declaratively to a catalog on a web page. A catalog, in the Web Parts control set, is simply a list of Web Part or other server controls that is visible when a page is in catalog display mode. A user can select controls from the list and add them to the web page, which effectively gives users the ability to change the set of controls and the functionality on a page.

The DeclarativeCatalogPart control, like all other CatalogPart controls, resides in a DeclarativeCatalogPart zone.

To add an DeclarativeCatalogPart control to a page

  • Drag the DeclarativeCatalogPart control from the Toolbox panel to a CatalogZone control on the page.
