Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
- Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPartDescription
The method returns a WebPart control from a catalog. The WebPartDescription object that is passed to the method matches a specific WebPart control and enables that control to be returned by the method.
If a catalog contains a server control that does not derive from the WebPart class, such as an ASP.NET server control, a custom server control, or a user control, a CatalogPart control must wrap the server control with a GenericWebPart control, and return the GenericWebPart control from this method.Notes to Inheritors
The method is abstract, so it must be implemented by derived CatalogPart controls. This method is called by the zone that contains a CatalogPart control, by an associated CatalogPartChrome object, and by the WebPartManager object on a Web page.
