Parameter.Evaluate Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Updates and returns the value of the Parameter object.

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

protected virtual Object Evaluate (
	HttpContext context,
	Control control
)
protected Object Evaluate (
	HttpContext context, 
	Control control
)
protected function Evaluate (
	context : HttpContext, 
	control : Control
) : Object

Parameters

context

The current HttpContext of the request.

control

The Control the parameter is bound to. If the parameter is not bound to a control, the control parameter is ignored.

Return Value

An object that represents the updated and current value of the parameter.

The default implementation of the Evaluate method is to return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) in all cases. Classes that derive from the Parameter class override the Evaluate method to return an updated parameter value. For example, the ControlParameter object returns the value of the control that it is bound to, while the QueryStringParameter object retrieves the current name/value pair from the HttpRequest object.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the Evaluate method to return the correct value in a class that is derived from the Parameter class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the Parameter class overview.

// The Evaluate method is overridden to return the
// DataValue property instead of the DefaultValue.
protected override object Evaluate(HttpContext context, Control control) {

  if (context.Request == null)
      return null;

  return DataValue;
}

// The Evaluate method is overridden to return the 
// DataValue property instead of the DefaultValue.
protected Object Evaluate(Control control)
{
    return get_DataValue();
} //Evaluate
