BaseControlArray.GetControlInstanceType Method


Returns the type of a control in a control array.

 abstract Type ^ GetControlInstanceType();
protected abstract Type GetControlInstanceType ();
abstract member GetControlInstanceType : unit -> Type
Protected MustOverride Function GetControlInstanceType () As Type


The type of a control in a control array.


This method must be overridden.

The BaseControlArray class is the base class for all control arrays that are used in applications upgraded from Visual Basic 6.0. Because this class is not typically used to create an instance of the class, this Protected method is usually not called directly but is instead called by a derived class.

Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.

Notes to Implementers

When you override GetControlInstanceType in a derived class, do not call the GetControlInstanceType method of the base class.
