Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The Type object that is passed in as a parameter of the object is used by the parser as the type of Container object that is used in data-binding expressions. The control whose property returns an ITemplate interface and is marked with the , must implement the INamingContainer interface.
For more information about using attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.
The following code example demonstrates how to create a templated control named TemplatedFirstControl and associate it with a container named FirstTemplateContainer. This allows the creation of custom controls that display the server time when the template is not specified and the template's content when the template is specified.
The following Web form demonstrates how to use the custom control created in the preceding code example. Two instances of the TemplatedFirstControl are placed on the page:
The first instance includes the template <FirstTemplate>.
The second instance does not include <FirstTemplate>; therefore, it shows just the time.
