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

public virtual void Add (

public void Add (
	Control child

)
Not applicable.

Parameters

child

The Control to add to the collection.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

Thrown if the child parameter does not specify a control.

HttpException

Thrown if the ControlCollection is read-only.

The new control is added to the end of an ordinal index array. The control can be an instance of any ASP.NET server control, a custom server control you create, or a literal control.

To add a control to the collection at a specific index location, use the AddAt method.

The following code example uses the Add method to add a series of template items, the number of which are taken from the server control's view state, to a custom templated control.

// Override to create repeated items.
protected override void CreateChildControls() {
    object o = ViewState["NumItems"];
    if (o != null) {
       // Clear any existing child controls.
       Controls.Clear();

       int numItems = (int)o;
       for (int i=0; i < numItems; i++) {
          // Create an item.
          RepeaterItem item = new RepeaterItem(i, null);
          // Initialize the item from the template.
          ItemTemplate.InstantiateIn(item);
          // Add the item to the ControlCollection.
          Controls.Add(item);
       }
    }
}

// Override to create repeated items.
protected void CreateChildControls()
{
    Object o = get_ViewState().get_Item("NumItems");
    if (o != null) {
        // Clear any existing child controls.
        get_Controls().Clear();

        int numItems = Convert.ToInt32(o);
        for (int i = 0; i < numItems; i++) {
            // Create an item.
            RepeaterItem item = new RepeaterItem(i, null);
            // Initialize the item from the template.
            get_ItemTemplate().InstantiateIn(item);
            // Add the item to the ControlCollection.
            get_Controls().Add(item);
        }
    }
} //CreateChildControls
