	String controlText

Parameters

designerHost

An IDesignerHost instance that is the designer host for the page.

controlText

A string that represents a collection of markup for controls.

Return Value

An array of Control elements, parsed from controlText; otherwise, a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), if the parser cannot build the controls.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

designerHost is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

- or -

controlText is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or an empty string ("").

The ParseControls method accesses the string representing the register directives on the ASP.NET Web page using the services of the designer host. Designer host services are acquired through the ReferenceManager property of the RootDesigner object, or if that is not available, the IWebFormReferenceManager service.

The ParseControls method throws an exception if the parser cannot build the controls from the controlText parameter.
