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

public override void Add (
	Control v
)
public void Add (
	Control v
)
public override function Add (
	v : Control
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

v

The View control to add to the collection.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

The v parameter does not specify a View control.

The Add method adds the new control to the end of an ordinal index array. The control can only be an instance of a View control.

To add a control to the collection at a specific index location, use the AddAt method.

The following code example demonstrates how to programmatically add View controls to a MultiView control. After each View control is created, the MultiView.Views.Add() syntax is used to add the View control to the ViewCollection collection of the MultiView control.
