The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets a value that indicates whether a control is a member of a control array.

Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)

protected bool BaseCanExtend(
	object target


Type: System.Object

The Control to test.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the control is a member of the control array; otherwise, false.

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 Inheritors:

Derived classes should make sure that target is of the correct type for the control array.

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