The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Verifies that the object a data-bound control binds to is one it can work with.

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

protected override void ValidateDataSource(
	object dataSource


Type: System.Object

An object set to the DataSource property.

Exception Condition

dataSource is not null and implements neither the IHierarchicalEnumerable nor the IHierarchicalDataSource interface.

The ValidateDataSource method is called only in the BaseDataBoundControl class's mutator (setter) for the DataSource property. The HierarchicalDataBoundControl class checks the type of the object that is set for the DataSource property to ensure that it is an instance of the IHierarchicalEnumerable or IHierarchicalDataSource interfaces.
