Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI::IAutoFieldGenerator^

The control that will automatically generate the columns for a GridView control that uses ASP.NET Dynamic Data features.

In order to use ASP.NET Dynamic Data features in a page, you must add a DynamicDataManager control to the page. This enables ASP.NET Dynamic Data features for data-bound controls in a page, such as GridView control. To enable an individual GridView control to use Dynamic Data features, you must associate it with the DynamicDataManager control by calling the DynamicDataManager::RegisterControl method during the Page_Init event. This method automatically sets the ColumnsGenerator property to the DynamicDataManager object.
