ControlCollection.SyncRoot Property

Gets an object that can be used to synchronize access to the collection of controls.

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

public Object SyncRoot { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The Object used to synchronize the collection.

Implements

ICollection.SyncRoot

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();
       }
   }       
}
