Not applicable.



The data source view that performs the data retrieval operation.

Exception typeCondition


The data source view does not support the data source capability specified.

The RaiseUnsupportedCapabilitiesError method is used by data-bound controls to compare additional requested capabilities represented by the properties of the DataSourceSelectArguments class, such as the ability to sort or page through a result set, with the capabilities supported by the data source view. The view calls its own RaiseUnsupportedCapabilityError method for each possible capability defined in the DataSourceCapabilities enumeration.


If any of the DataSourceSelectArguments properties are set, but the currently bound data source control does not support the requested capability, an InvalidOperationException exception is thrown when the DataSourceSelectArguments.RaiseUnsupportedCapabilitiesError method is called.
