	WebPartMobileAdapter.WebPartIconLink linkType


Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPartMobileAdapter.WebPartIconLink

A value that specifies whether the icon will be just an image or a clickable control.

Return value

Type: System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Image
An icon that renders beside the Web Part title.

Your code may call CreateWebPartIcon(WebPartMobileAdapter.WebPartIconLink) only in an override of CreateControlsForSummaryView() or CreateControlsForDetailView().

If linkType is NoLink, an icon is rendered. If linkType is anything else, behavior depends on the capabilities of the browser. If it supports expanding and collapsing of a Web Part, then the rendered icon works as an expand/collapse button. Otherwise, the icon is either a link to the detailed view of the Web Part, when the Web Part is being rendered in summary view, or a link to the summary view, when the Web Part is being rendered in detailed view.
