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

public override void ExtractValuesFromCell(
	IOrderedDictionary dictionary,
	DataControlFieldCell cell,
	DataControlRowState rowState,
	bool includeReadOnly


Type: System.Collections.Specialized.IOrderedDictionary
An IOrderedDictionary used to store the values of the specified cell.
Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataControlFieldCell
The DataControlFieldCell that contains the values to retrieve.
Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataControlRowState
One of the DataControlRowState values.
Type: System.Boolean
The value true includes only the values of read-only fields; otherwise, false.

The ExtractValuesFromCell method is a helper method used to retrieve the values of the fields from the specified DataControlFieldCell object in an AutoGeneratedField object.


This method is primarily used by control developers.

This method does not have a return value. Instead, the field values are returned by reference through the IOrderedDictionary object passed in for the dictionary parameter. After the method has been called, iterate through the IOrderedDictionary object to access the field values.


To include the read-only field values in the DataControlFieldCell object, pass in true for the includeReadOnly parameter.
