Control.CreateChildControls Method

Called by the ASP.NET page framework to notify server controls that use composition-based implementation to create any child controls they contain in preparation for posting back or rendering.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

'Declaration
Protected Friend Overridable Sub CreateChildControls

When you develop a composite or templated server control, you must override this method. Controls that override the CreateChildControls method should implement the INamingContainer interface to avoid naming conflicts.

For more information, see ASP.NET Web Server Controls Templates and Developing Custom ASP.NET Server Controls.

The following example demonstrates an overridden version of the CreateChildControls method. In this implementation, the composite control displays a TextBox control enclosed in two literal controls that render HTML.

Security noteSecurity Note

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
