Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
A Web Parts connection is a link or association between two WebPart (or other server or user) controls that enables them to share data. In every Web Parts connection, one control acts as a provider of data and another as a consumer of data.
When a Web Parts control is both a provider and a consumer, and the provided data depends on the consumed data, there is the possibility of creating a connection that results in an infinite loop between Web Parts controls. These loops are called circular connections. A developer can prevent a circular connection by using the WebPartTracker class to track the number of connections for a provider connection point and a Web Parts control. The provider connection point and the control are specified in the WebPartTracker constructor.
