Initializes a new instance of the ConnectionProviderAttribute class, specifying a display name and an ID for the provider connection point.

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

public ConnectionProviderAttribute(
	string displayName,
	string id


Type: System.String

A string that contains a friendly name for the provider connection point to display in the user interface (UI).

Type: System.String

The ID, a unique string value assigned to the provider connection point.

Exception Condition

displayName or id is null.

The displayName parameter is a friendly name of the provider connection point that is used by the ConnectionsZone control to represent a provider's connection point in the UI.

The id parameter is used to specify the ID for the provider connection point associated with the specific callback method. A control can have multiple connection points, but the id for each must be unique. Therefore, this overload of the constructor is useful if you have multiple callback methods in your provider control.
