CompositeDataBoundControl.CreateChildControls Method (IEnumerable, Boolean)

When overridden in an abstract class, creates the control hierarchy that is used to render the composite data-bound control based on the values from the specified data source.

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

abstract CreateChildControls : 
        dataSource:IEnumerable * 
        dataBinding:bool -> int 

Parameters

dataSource
Type: System.Collections.IEnumerable
An IEnumerable that contains the values to bind to the control.
dataBinding
Type: System.Boolean
true to indicate that the CreateChildControls(IEnumerable, Boolean) is called during data binding; otherwise, false.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of items created by the CreateChildControls(IEnumerable, Boolean).

The CreateChildControls() method is a helper method that is used by classes that derive from the CompositeDataBoundControl class to create the control hierarchy for a composite data-bound control. When extending the CompositeDataBoundControl class, you must override the CreateChildControls() method to create your own control hierarchy. For more information on creating a composite control, see Developing Custom ASP.NET Server Controls.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the CreateChildControls(IEnumerable, Boolean) method in a custom control to create the control hierarchy.
