DataSourceDesigner.Configure Method

Launches the data source configuration utility in the design host.

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

public virtual void Configure()




An attempt was made to invoke this method in the base class.

The Configure method is not supported in the DataSourceDesigner class; however, it can be overridden by custom data source designers inheriting from the DataSourceDesigner class.

In a design host such as Visual Studio 2005, you can see the Configure method in action by completing the following process:

  1. Put a SqlDataSource or an AccessDataSource control on your page.

  2. In Design view, on the action list, clicking Configure.
