Completes the process of editing a WebPart control.

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

public virtual void EndWebPartEditing ()
public void EndWebPartEditing ()
public function EndWebPartEditing ()

Exception typeCondition


The control referenced by the SelectedWebPart property is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The EndWebPartEditing method finishes the process of editing a WebPart control. It is the counterpart to the BeginWebPartEditing method.

The EndWebPartEditing method ensures that the personalization object referenced by the Personalization property is modifiable, which is necessary because editing a control is a process that requires personalization changes. The method then ensures that the SelectedWebPart object is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), so that the currently selected WebPart control can change, and finally it calls the OnSelectedWebPartChanged method.

Notes to Inheritors Developers who need to extend the WebPartManager control might want to override this method in a derived class. One approach would be to call the base method and then add some additional custom handling, or you might want to completely customize the entire process of completing the editing of a control. For example, in the override method, you could call the base method first, and then add some code that determines what editing changes were made, and displays the list of changes back to the end user as a confirmation.
