Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
A Web Parts connection can be established statically or dynamically. A static connection is defined within the <StaticConnections> element. A user can define a dynamic connection when a connections zone is included in a Web page and the user is in the connect mode. When establishing a dynamic connection, the user defines the connection through a configuration control. The method returns the control that the user interacts with to define the connection.
The configuration control displays a UI that allows the user to connect or disconnect a provider and consumer, and select which field from the provider row data to connect with the field data of the consumer. The control is displayed in the ConnectionsZone zone.
