IWebPartField.GetFieldValue Method

Returns the value of the field that is being used by the interface as the basis of a connection between two WebPart controls.

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

void GetFieldValue(
	FieldCallback callback
)

Parameters

callback
Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.FieldCallback

A FieldCallback delegate that contains the address of a method that receives the data.

Use this method to retrieve the data field values passed by the interface.

The following code example shows the implementation and use of the GetFieldValue method. The complete example is shown in the class overview for the IWebPartField interface. The provider control implements the GetFieldValue method, returning the value of a particular field in the data table. The consumer control calls the GetFieldValue method in its OnPreRender method, so that the value of the data can be written to the page.
