StateBag.Keys Property

Gets a collection of keys representing the items in the StateBag object.

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

public ICollection Keys { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.ICollection
The collection of keys.

Implements

IDictionary.Keys

These keys are the names of the control properties. For example, if you created a BGColor property on a Table control that you customized, a BGColor entry is created in this collection representing that property on your Table control.

These keys correspond to the names of the StateItem objects stored in the StateBag collection for the current page or server control.

You can iterate over this collection using the StateBag.GetEnumerator method.

The following code example demonstrates using the Keys property.


private string GetMruList(string selectedValue) {
   StateBag state = ViewState;
   if (state.Count > 0) {
      int upperBound = state.Count;
      string[] keys = new string[upperBound];
      StateItem[] values = new StateItem[upperBound];
      state.Keys.CopyTo(keys, 0);
      state.Values.CopyTo(values, 0);
      StringBuilder options = new StringBuilder();
      for(int i = 0; i < upperBound; i++) {
         options.AppendFormat("<option {0} value={1}>{2}", (selectedValue == keys[i])?"selected":"", keys[i], values[i].Value);
      }
      return options.ToString();
   }
   return "";
}
