DataList.CreateControlHierarchy Method

Creates the control hierarchy that is used to render the data list control, with or without the specified data source.

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

protected override void CreateControlHierarchy(
	bool useDataSource
)

Parameters

useDataSource
Type: System.Boolean

true to use the control's data source; false to indicate that the control is being recreated from view state and should not be data-bound.

The CreateControlHierarchy method is used primarily by control developers when deriving a custom implementation from the DataList control.

The CreateControlHierarchy method uses the CreateItem and InitializeItem methods to create DataListItem controls that represent the header, footer, separator, and data-bound items contained in the data list. You can access the data-bound items for the data list through the Items collection. You can access all item types, including the header, footer, and separator items, through the Controls collection.

Override the CreateControlHierarchy method to customize how DataListItem controls are created or added to the DataList control. Override the InitializeItem method to customize templates for a DataListItem control.
