ControlAdapter::Control Property


Gets a reference to the control to which this control adapter is attached.

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

property Control^ Control {
	Control^ get();

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI::Control^

The System.Web.UI::Control to which this ControlAdapter is attached.

When a derived control adapter is attached to a control, the .NET Framework calls certain adapter members instead of the control members.

Notes to Inheritors:

When you inherit from the ControlAdapter class, at a minimum, you should implement a Control property to return a strongly-typed instance of the control, as shown in the Example section.

The following code example shows how to derive a custom control from the Control class, and then create a corresponding adapter that inherits from the ControlAdapter class. The adapter overrides the Control property and returns a strongly-typed reference to the control.

#using <System.Web.Mobile.dll>
#using <System.dll>
#using <System.Web.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Web::UI;
using namespace System::Web::UI::Adapters;
using namespace System::Web::UI::WebControls;

public ref class CustomControl: public Control{};

public ref class CustomControlAdapter: public ControlAdapter

   property System::Web::UI::Control^ Control 
      // Return a strongly-typed reference to your custom control.
      System::Web::UI::Control^ get()
         return (CustomControl^)ControlAdapter::Control;
   // Override other ControlAdapter members, as necessary.
