DataSourceIDConverter.IsValidDataSource Method

Gets a value that indicates whether the specified component is a valid data source.

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

protected virtual bool IsValidDataSource(
	IComponent component


Type: System.ComponentModel.IComponent

An object that implements the IComponent interface.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if component is a valid data source; otherwise, false.

The IsValidDataSource method considers the component parameter to be a valid data source if it implements the IDataSource interface.

Notes to Inheritors

The IsValidDataSource method should be overridden by controls that need to further investigate a given component to decide whether it should be returned in the list of standard values. For example, if a control works with only XmlDataSource data sources, IsValidDataSource should return true only for those components that are XmlDataSource objects.
