Part.ChromeState Property

Gets or sets whether a part control is in a minimized or normal state.

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

public virtual PartChromeState ChromeState { get; set; }
/** @property */
public PartChromeState get_ChromeState ()

/** @property */
public void set_ChromeState (PartChromeState value)

public function get ChromeState () : PartChromeState

public function set ChromeState (value : PartChromeState)

Not applicable.

Property Value

One of the PartChromeState values. The default is Normal.
Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The value specified is not one of the PartChromeState values.

A part control's ChromeState can be normal or minimized.

Notes to Inheritors: Derived classes such as WebPart can override ChromeState to enable user personalization of the control's border state.

The following code example illustrates the declarative use of the ChromeState property in a part control. This example requires the custom WebPart control TextDisplayWebPart, which can be found in the Example section of the Part class summary.

Note that in the declarative markup for the Web page, the second instance of the TextDisplayWebPart control sets its ChromeState property. After you load the page in a browser, the second control instance appears minimized.
