DataBoundControlAdapter.Control Property

Retrieves a strongly-typed reference to the DataBoundControl object associated with this control adapter.

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

protected DataBoundControl Control { get; }

When a DataBoundControlAdapter object is attached to a DataBoundControl control, the .NET Framework calls certain adapter members instead of the control members.

Notes to Inheritors:

When you inherit from the DataBoundControlAdapter class, you should, at a minimum, implement a Control property to return a strongly typed instance of the control, as shown in the Example section

The following code example shows how to override the Control property in an adapter derived from the DataBoundControlAdapter class. It returns a strongly typed reference to the MyDataBound control.

// Returns a strongly-typed reference to the MyDataBound control. 
public new MyDataBound Control
{
    get
    {
        return (MyDataBound)base.Control;
    }
}
