TemplateBasedControl.CustomAlternateTemplate property

Gets or sets a custom alternate template.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

public ITemplate CustomAlternateTemplate { get; set; }

Property value

Type: System.Web.UI.ITemplate
A ITemplate object that renders the control.

The CustomTemplate and CustomAlternateTemplate properties are marked with the [PersistenceMode(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)] attribute. This means that the ITemplate objects that they return are compiled and persist in the TemplateBasedControl object as a nested tag. There are several advantages to using precompiled templates; for example, they can be added to a page in a visual designer such as Microsoft SharePoint Designer or Visual Studio by dragging and dropping them from the designer toolbox. But there are disadvantages also. For more information, see Patterns of Custom Field Rendering, Web User Controls and Web Custom Controls, and PersistenceModeAttribute.
