Declares the base type of the container control of a property that returns an ITemplate interface and is marked with the attribute. The control with the ITemplate property must implement the INamingContainer interface. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
Initializes a new instance of theclass using the specified container type.
Initializes a new instance of the BindingDirection property.class using the specified container type and the
This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
|_Attribute::GetIDsOfNames(Guid%, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)|
Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_Attribute::GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)|
Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_Attribute::Invoke(UInt32, Guid%, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)|
Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
The Type object that is passed in as a parameter of the object is used by the parser as the type of Container object that is used in data-binding expressions. The control whose property returns an ITemplate interface and is marked with the , must implement the INamingContainer interface.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a templated control named TemplatedFirstControl and associate it with a container named FirstTemplateContainer. This allows the creation of custom controls that display the server time when the template is not specified and the template's content when the template is specified.
The following Web form demonstrates how to use the custom control created in the preceding code example. Two instances of the TemplatedFirstControl are placed on the page:
The first instance includes the template <FirstTemplate>.
The second instance does not include <FirstTemplate>; therefore, it shows just the time.
