ListSourceHelper Class

Used by data source controls when implementing the members defined by the IListSource interface. This class cannot be inherited.

System.Object
  System.Web.UI.ListSourceHelper

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

public static class ListSourceHelper

The ListSourceHelper type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodStatic memberContainsListCollectionIndicates whether the specified data source control contains a collection of data source view objects.
Public methodStatic memberGetListRetrieves an IList collection of data source objects.

The ListSourceHelper class is a utility class provided to simplify implementation of the IListSource interface by data source controls. Data source controls that implement the IDataSource interface but do not extend the DataSourceControl class can use the static ListSourceHelper methods in their own implementations of the methods defined by the IListSource interface. Data source controls that extend from the DataSourceControl class inherit these method implementations automatically.

The following code example demonstrates the design pattern for a data source class that implements the IListSource methods.

#region Implementation of IDataSource

public virtual DataSourceView GetView(string viewName) {
    if (null == view) {
        view = new SomeDataSourceView(this);
    }
    return view;
}

public virtual ICollection GetViewNames() {
    ArrayList al = new ArrayList(1);
    al.Add(GetView(String.Empty).Name);
    return al as ICollection;
}

event EventHandler IDataSource.DataSourceChanged {
    add {
        ((IDataSource)this).DataSourceChanged += value;
    }
    remove {
        ((IDataSource)this).DataSourceChanged -= value;
    }
}

#endregion
#region Implementation of IListSource

bool IListSource.ContainsListCollection {
    get {
        return ListSourceHelper.ContainsListCollection(this);
    }
}

IList IListSource.GetList() {
    return ListSourceHelper.GetList(this);
}
