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

protected override ControlCollection CreateControlCollection()

Return Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ControlCollection

A ControlCollection that contains the child control.

The CreateControlCollection method creates a private, read-only collection that consists of a single control, which is the child control of a GenericWebPart control. This collection is created so that developers cannot manually add other controls to a GenericWebPart control.

If you want to create a custom GenericWebPart control without adding the child control to the private collection, you can derive from the GenericWebPart class, override the GenericWebPart constructor, and provide a different method for storing the child control referenced by the ChildControl property.
