Initialize Method

BoundField.Initialize Method (Boolean, Control)


Initializes the BoundField object.

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

public override bool Initialize(
	bool enableSorting,
	Control control


Type: System.Boolean

true if sorting is supported; otherwise, false.

Type: System.Web.UI.Control

The data control that owns the BoundField.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

false in all cases.

The Initialize method is called by the data control with which the BoundField object is associated to perform basic object initialization for instances of the field, before the field is ever added to a rows collection. Data controls such as DetailsView and GridView call the Initialize method in their CreateChildControls methods before other methods such as CreateRow are called to create specific rows with data.

Call this method when you are writing a custom data-bound control that uses TableCell objects to perform basic initialization for a BoundField object. Implement this method if your BoundField-derived type requires any object initialization before it populates TableCell objects with data or controls in the InitializeCell method.
