IListSource.ContainsListCollection Property


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

Namespace:   System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

bool ContainsListCollection { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

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

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.

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; }
