WebPartManagerInternals.GetZoneID Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets the ID of a zone that contains the specified WebPart or server control.

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

public string GetZoneID (
	WebPart webPart
public String GetZoneID (
	WebPart webPart
public function GetZoneID (
	webPart : WebPart
) : String



A WebPart that resides in a zone.

Return Value

A string that represents the ID of the zone that contains webPart.

The GetZoneID method returns the ID of the zone that contains the control referenced by the webPart parameter.


The Zone property of webPart references the actual zone object that contains webPart, not the ID of the zone. If webPart is currently closed, the value of its Zone property is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), and the GetZoneID method will return the ID of the last zone that webPart was in prior to being closed.
