IsReadOnly Property

ControlCollection.IsReadOnly Property

Gets a value indicating whether the ControlCollection object is read-only.

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

public bool IsReadOnly { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the control is read-only; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The following code example creates a method that enumerates through the ControlCollection collection of a Button control, myButton. When the enumerator is created, the IsSynchronized property is checked to see if the operation is thread safe, and if it is not, the SyncRoot property is used to obtain an object to make the operation thread safe. When the enumeration is complete, the value of the IsReadOnly property is written as the Text property of a Label control on the containing page.

// Create a method that enuberates through a  
// button//s ControlCollection in a thread-safe manner.   
public void ListControlCollection(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   IEnumerator myEnumerator = myButton.Controls.GetEnumerator();

   // Check the IsSynchronized property. If False, 
   // use the SyncRoot method to get an object that  
   // allows the enumeration of all controls to be  
   // thread safe. 
   if (myButton.Controls.IsSynchronized == false)
   {
       lock (myButton.Controls.SyncRoot)
       {
           while (myEnumerator.MoveNext())
           {

               Object myObject = myEnumerator.Current;

               LiteralControl childControl = (LiteralControl)myEnumerator.Current;
               Response.Write("<b><br /> This is the  text of the child Control  </b>: " +
                              childControl.Text);
           }
           msgReadOnly.Text = myButton.Controls.IsReadOnly.ToString();
       }
   }       
}
