IListSource.ContainsListCollection Property


Gets a value indicating whether the collection is a collection of IList objects.

 property bool ContainsListCollection { bool get(); };
public bool ContainsListCollection { get; }
member this.ContainsListCollection : bool
Public ReadOnly Property ContainsListCollection As Boolean

Property Value

true if the collection is a collection of IList objects; otherwise, false.


The following code example demonstrates how to implement the IListSource interface. A component named EmployeeListSource indicates that it does not contain an IList for data binding by returning false from the ContainsListCollection method. For a full code listing, see How to: Implement the IListSource Interface.

bool IListSource.ContainsListCollection
    get { return false; }
Public ReadOnly Property ContainsListCollection() As Boolean Implements System.ComponentModel.IListSource.ContainsListCollection
        Return False
    End Get
End Property


Using this property in DataSet returns true because the DataSet class contains a collection of collections. Using this property in DataTable returns false because the DataTable class contains a collection of objects.
