The InitializeCell method is implemented by ImageField-derived types to add text and controls to a DataControlFieldCell object of a data control that uses tables to display a user interface (UI). These data controls create the complete table structure row-by-row when the control's CreateChildControls method is called. The InitializeCell method is called by the InitializeRow method of data controls such as DetailsView and GridView.

Call this method when you are writing a custom data-bound control that uses DataControlFieldCell objects to initialize the cells of the table structure with data or controls. Implement this method when you are writing an ImageField-derived class.
