BaseDataBoundControl.Initialized Property

Gets a value indicating whether the data-bound control has been initialized.

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

protected bool Initialized { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the data-bound control has been initialized; otherwise, false.

The ConfirmInitState and OnPagePreLoad methods both explicitly set the Initialized property to true. The ConfirmInitState method is called by the DataBoundControl.OnLoad method, while OnPagePreLoad is called when the PreLoad event is raised.

The following code example shows a property that belongs to a derived data-bound control class. The example demonstrates how a data-bound control can call the OnDataPropertyChanged method if a property that identifies a data source is changed after the data-bound control is initialized. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataBoundControl class.

public string DataTextField {
    get {
        object o = ViewState["DataTextField"];
        return((o == null) ? string.Empty : (string)o);
    }
    set {
        ViewState["DataTextField"] = value;
        if (Initialized) {
            OnDataPropertyChanged();
        }
    }
}
