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

Public Sub New (
	referencedControlType As Type


Type: System.Type

A Type that specifies the type of the control represented by the property to which the IDReferencePropertyAttribute is applied.

The following code example demonstrates how the IDReferencePropertyAttribute attribute is applied to a property that evaluates to a string. In this example, the DataSourceID member identifies a data source control and therefore specifies the DataSourceControl type.

' This class implements a custom data source control.
Public Class SomeDataBoundControl
    Inherits DataBoundControl

    <IDReferencePropertyAttribute(GetType(DataSourceControl))>  _
    Public Shadows Property DataSourceID() As String 
            Return MyBase.DataSourceID
        End Get
            MyBase.DataSourceID = value
        End Set
    End Property

End Class 'SomeDataBoundControl
