IList GetList()

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.IList
An IList that can be bound to a data source from the object.

The following code example demonstrates how to implement the IListSource interface. A component named EmployeeListSource exposes an IList for data binding by implementing the GetList method. For a full code listing, see How to: Implement the IListSource Interface.

System.Collections.IList IListSource.GetList()
{
    BindingList<Employee>   ble = new BindingList<Employee>();

    if (!this.DesignMode)
    {
        ble.Add(new Employee("Aaberg, Jesper", 26000000));
        ble.Add(new Employee("Cajhen, Janko", 19600000));
        ble.Add(new Employee("Furse, Kari", 19000000));
        ble.Add(new Employee("Langhorn, Carl", 16000000));
        ble.Add(new Employee("Todorov, Teodor", 15700000));
        ble.Add(new Employee("Vereb�lyi, �gnes", 15700000));
    }

    return ble;
}
