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

public Control LoadControl (
	Type t,
	Object[] parameters
public Control LoadControl (
	Type t, 
	Object[] parameters
public function LoadControl (
	t : Type, 
	parameters : Object[]
) : Control
Not applicable.



The type of the control.


An array of arguments that match in number, order, and type the parameters of the constructor to invoke. If parameters is an empty array or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the constructor that takes no parameters (the default constructor) is invoked.

Return Value

Returns the specified UserControl.

If the user control supports caching, the object returned from the LoadControl method is not actually a UserControl object; rather, it is a PartialCachingControl object.

When you load a control into a container control, the container raises all of the added control's events until it has caught up to the current event. However, the added control does not catch up with postback data processing. For an added control to participate in postback data processing, including validation, the control must be added in the Init event rather than in the Load event.
