Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.MobileControls.ListDecoration

An enumerated value representing the type of decoration used for items.

Where the target device permits, list items can be undecorated, or decorated with bullets or numbers. The ListDecoration enumeration has the following values:




No decoration.


List items are decorated with a bullet.


List items are decorated with a number.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Decoration property to change the list to a numbered list. The property is set in the last line of the Page_Load method. This example is part of a larger example for the List overview.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!IsPostBack)
        // Set the DataMembers of the List
        List1.DataValueField = "Status";
        List1.DataTextField = "TaskName";

        // Create an ArrayList of task data
        ArrayList arr = new ArrayList();
        arr.Add(new Task("Define transactions", "scheduled"));
        arr.Add(new Task("Verify transactions", "scheduled"));
        arr.Add(new Task("Check balance sheet", "scheduled"));
        arr.Add(new Task("Compile balance sheet", "scheduled"));
        arr.Add(new Task("Prepare report", "scheduled"));
        arr.Add(new Task("Send report", "scheduled"));

        // Bind the array to the list
        List1.DataSource = arr;

        const string spec = "Start: {0} tasks are done, {1} " +
           "tasks are scheduled, and {2} tasks are pending.";
        Label2.Text = String.Format(spec, doneCount, +
            schedCount, pendCount);

        List1.Decoration = ListDecoration.Bulleted;
