@ Implements 

Indicates that the current ASP.NET application file (Web page, user control, or master page) implements the specified .NET Framework interface.


<%@ Implements interface="ValidInterfaceName" %>

interface

The interface to be implemented on the page or user control.

When you implement an interface in a Web Forms page, you can create its events, methods, and properties between the opening and closing tags of a <script> element in a code declaration block. You cannot use this directive to implement an interface in a code-behind file.

The following code example demonstrates a user control that includes an @ Implements directive to access the six properties of the IWebPart interface. By implementing these properties in the user control, you enable the user control to have the properties and appearance of a WebPart control, when you place it within a WebPartZone control. The first part of the code example is the user control; place this code in a file and name it CalendarUserControl.ascx.

The second part of the code example is a page to host the user control. Note that the page uses an @ Register directive to register the user control for use on the page. Notice also that, when the user control is declared in the body of the page, some IWebPart properties such as Title and Description are assigned values in the declarative syntax. For more information on how to include a user control in a Web Forms page, see @ Register, Custom Server Control Syntax, and How to: Include a User Control in an ASP.NET Web Page. For information about Web Parts pages, see ASP.NET Web Parts Pages.
