true to use the data item to create the automatically generated row fields; otherwise, false.

Return Value

An ICollection that contains both the automatically generated and the user-defined row fields for the specified data item.

The CreateFieldSet method is a helper method called by the DetailsView control to create the complete set of row fields for the control. If the AutoGenerateRows property is set to true, automatically generated row fields are appended to the user-defined row fields contained in the Fields collection. To create the automatically generated row fields based on the data item, pass in true for the useDataSource parameter; otherwise, the automatically generated row fields are created based on properties of the existing row fields in the control.

Notes to Inheritors When extending the DetailsView class, you can override this method to create your own set of row fields.
