Table.CreateControlCollection Method

Creates a new ControlCollection object to hold the TableRow controls of the current Table control.

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

protected override ControlCollection CreateControlCollection()

Return Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ControlCollection
A ControlCollection object to contain the TableRow controls of the current Table control.

This method is used primarily by control developers when deriving a custom class from a Table control.

This method overrides the CreateControlCollection implementation for the base Control class. For a Table control, the CreateControlCollection always returns a ControlCollection that can only contain TableRow controls of the current Table 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 Table.
