Calendar.CreateControlCollection Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Creates a collection to store child controls.

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

protected override ControlCollection CreateControlCollection()

Return Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ControlCollection
Always returns an InternalControlCollection object.

The CreateControlCollection method is primarily of interest to control developers who extend the functionality of the Calendar control.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the CreateControlCollection method in a custom server control so that it always returns a new instance of the EmptyControlCollection class for the Calendar control.
