LinqDataSourceView Constructor (LinqDataSource, String, HttpContext)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Initializes a new instance of the LinqDataSourceView class, setting the specified LinqDataSource control as the owner of the current view.

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

public LinqDataSourceView(
	LinqDataSource owner,
	string name,
	HttpContext context


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.LinqDataSource

The data source control that the LinqDataSourceView object is associated with.

Type: System.String

A unique name for the data source view within the scope of the data source control that owns it.

Type: System.Web.HttpContext

The current HttpContext instance.

The LinqDataSourceView constructor is called by the GetView method to return a new instance of a data source view with the specified name parameter. Only one LinqDataSourceView object is associated with a LinqDataSource control at a time. The name of the LinqDataSourceView object is always DefaultView, although this naming restriction is imposed by the LinqDataSource control, not by the LinqDataSourceView control. You can override the LinqDataSource.GetView method to support views that use a different naming convention.

The HttpContext instance that is passed by the context parameter is used by the data source view to access parameter collections.
