ObjectList.NET 1.1, disposable

System.Web.UI.MobileControls (system.web.mobile.dll)class

The ObjectList control is a data-bound list that allows you to display multiple pieces of information from System.Data.DataRow objects in a System.Data.DataTable, or any other type of object in a collection. Unlike the simpler List control, you cannot directly add items to or remove items from an ObjectList. Instead, you must set the DataSource property and call the DataBind( ) method.

The appearance of the ObjectList depends on the type of mobile device and the control property settings. Usually, the ObjectList appears as a single list of values drawn from the data-bound object. For example, if you are binding a table of customers, you might configure the ObjectList to display a list of customer IDs by setting the LabelField property to "ID". The user can then select the ID (on a WML browser) or click the "More" link (on an HTML browser) to show the full item information and any item-specific commands you have defined. You can specify the fields that will be shown in the detailed view in one of two ways. If you set AutoGenerateFields to True, all the fields (or public properties) will be shown for the bound objects. Alternatively, set AutoGenerateFields to False and add a collection of ObjectListField instances (one for each field or property you want to bind) to the Fields collection. In addition, you can configure the rendering of the control so that it creates a table that shows multiple fields for each item. This is only supported for HTML devices. To enable this behavior, set the TableFields to a list of property or field names separated by semicolons (as in "ID;FirstName;LastName").

The ObjectList also allows you to define commands that can be invoked for any item in the list. You can define these commands by adding ObjectListCommand instances to the Commands collection. Visual Studio .NET provides rich designer support for the ObjectList control, including a property builder that allows you to specify bound columns and define list commands.
