CatalogZone Web Server Control Overview
This topic contains:
A key feature of Web Parts controls such as the CatalogZone control is that they enable end users to personalize Web pages and save their personalized settings. The CatalogZone control enables end users to add WebPart controls or other server controls to a Web Parts page at run time. The CatalogZone control serves as the primary control in the Web Parts control set for hosting CatalogPart controls on a Web page.
Enabling a CatalogZone Web Server Control
A CatalogZone control becomes visible only when a user switches a Web page to catalog-display mode (CatalogDisplayMode). For code examples that show how to use the CatalogZone control, see the examples in CatalogZone Web Server Control Declarative Syntax and System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts..::.CatalogZone.
CatalogPart Controls That Are Provided with the CatalogZone Web Server Control
A zone created by a CatalogZone control can contain several types of CatalogPart controls. Each CatalogPart control is a type of container for server controls that users can add to the page. The CatalogPart controls differ according to where the server controls they contain are coming from.
For a summary of CatalogPart controls, see the System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts..::.CatalogZone class overview.
