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)

protected 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;
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.
