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

Not applicable.

Property Value

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;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.Adapters;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

public class CustomControl : Control
    // Add your custom control code.

public class CustomControlAdapter : ControlAdapter
    // Return a strongly-typed reference to your custom control.
    public new CustomControl Control
            return (CustomControl)base.Control;

        // Override other ControlAdapter members, as necessary. 

package SimpleControlProperty; 

import System.*;
import System.Web.UI.*;
import System.Web.UI.Adapters.*;
import System.Web.UI.WebControls.*;

public class CustomControl extends Control
    // Add your custom control code.
} //CustomControl

public class CustomControlAdapter extends ControlAdapter
    // Declare the inherited property as your custom type.
    /** @property 
    public Control get_Control()
        // Cast the base call to your custom control.
        return (Control)super.get_Control();
    } //get_Control

    // Any device-specific adapters that inherit from 
    // this one can have a reference to your custom control 
    // by using super.get_Control() to access the inherited property.
} //CustomControlAdapter
