ControlParameter Constructor

Initializes a new unnamed instance of the ControlParameter class.

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

public ControlParameter()

A ControlParameter object that is created with the ControlParameter constructor is initialized with default values for all its properties. The ControlID and PropertyName properties are initialized to String.Empty. In addition, the Name property is initialized to String.Empty, the Type property is initialized to TypeCode.Object, the Direction property is initialized to Input, and the DefaultValue property is initialized to null.

The following code shows how to create a ControlParameter object with the ControlParameter constructor. The ControlParameter object binds the SelectedValue property of a DropDownList control to a parameterized SQL query that retrieves data that is displayed in a DataGrid control.
