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

public void SetTransformer (
	WebPartConnection connection,
	WebPartTransformer transformer
public void SetTransformer (
	WebPartConnection connection, 
	WebPartTransformer transformer
public function SetTransformer (
	connection : WebPartConnection, 
	transformer : WebPartTransformer



A WebPartConnection that creates a connection between server controls.


A WebPartTransformer to be used with connection.

When a connection between two server controls requires a transformer so that the consumer control can interpret data from the provider control, the SetTransformer method is called to supply a specific WebPartTransformer object to the WebPartConnection object. If the connection already has a transformer assigned to it, the object referenced by the transformer parameter overrides the existing one; otherwise, the object referenced in the transformer parameter is used.

The WebPartManager control uses the SetTransformer method whenever you call the ConnectWebParts method to establish a connection that requires a transformer.
