HierarchicalDataBoundControlDesigner.UseDataSourcePickerActionList Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the control should render its default action lists, which contain a data source ID drop-down list and related tasks.

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

protected virtual bool UseDataSourcePickerActionList { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
Always true.

The default action lists for the HierarchicalDataBoundControlDesigner class include a Choose Data Source menu item that has a drop-down list from which a data source can be selected, and any other action items on the action lists of the data source control.

Typically, the data source control action lists will include Configure Data Source and Refresh Schema menu items, although these need not always be present. The Configure Data Source menu item displays a dialog box that is appropriate to the type of data source chosen. For example, if the data source is an ObjectDataSource control, the Configure Data Source dialog box allows you to choose a business object for the ObjectDataSource. The Refresh Schema menu item refreshes the designer schema that is applied by the data source.

Notes to Inheritors

If you do not want the default data source action list items to be displayed, override the UseDataSourcePickerActionList property to return false. If you want other data source action list items to be displayed, override the UseDataSourcePickerActionList to return false and override the ActionLists property to add the appropriate DesignerActionItem objects to the DesignerActionListCollection object that it returns.
