Return Value

Type: System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter.StandardValuesCollection

A TypeConverter.StandardValuesCollection instance containing available values for assignment to the associated control property.

The GetStandardValues method uses the Instance property of the specified context object to obtain an IComponent implementation. If the IComponent implementation is available, it is used to access the associated control at design time and retrieve the list of available values from the associated GridView component.

The collection of available values is built from the bound column fields in the GridView control. The bound column fields consist of BoundField objects in the Columns collection, and from the bound column fields automatically generated for fields in the data source.
