Computer Programming: Control class properties, methods and events

The System.web.UI.Control class is the base class for all Web server controls. This class is derived directly from the object class, which resides in the System namespace. Here is the hierarchy of the control class:

Public Properties of control class

AppRelativeTemplateSourceDirectory : Obtains the application-relative virtual directory of the Page or UserControl that contains this control
BindingContainer : Obtains the control that contains this control's data binding
ClientID : Obtains the server control identifier generated by ASP.NET
Controls : Obtains a ControlCollection object that represents the child controls for a specified server control in the UI hierarchy
EnableTheming : Obtains a value indicating whether themes apply to his control.
EnableViewState : Obtains a value indicating whether the server control persists its view-state, and the view-state of any child controls it contains.
ID : Obtains the programmatic identifier assigned to the server control
NamingContainer : Obtains a reference to the server control's naming container, which creates a unique namespace for differentiating between server controls with the same System.Web.UI.Control.ID property Value.
Page : Obtains a reference to the Page instance that contains the server control.
Parent : Obtains a reference to the server control's parent control in the page control hierarchy
Site : Obtains information about the container that hosts the current control when rendered on a design surface.
SkidID : Obtains the skin to apply to the control.
TemplateControl : Obtains a reference to the template that contains this control
TemplateSourceDirectory: Obtains the virtual directory of the Page or UserControl that contains the current server control.
UniqueID : Obtains the unique , hierarchically-qualified identifier for the server control.
Visible : Obtains a value that indicates whether a server control is rendered as UI on the page.

Public Method of control class

ApplyStyleSheetSkin : Helps in applying the style properties defined in the page style sheet to the control
DataBind : Helps in binding a data source to the invoked server control and all its child controls.
Dispose : Helps in enabling a server control to perform final clean up before it is released from memory.
FindControl : Helps in searching the current naming container for the specified server control.
Focus : Helps in setting input focus to a control.
HasControls : Helps in determining if the server control contains any child controls
RenderControl : Helps in output server control content and stores tracing information about the control if tracing is enabled.
ResolveClientUrl : Helps in getting a URL that can be used by the browser.
ResolveUrl : Helps in converting a URL into the desired format
SetRenderMethodDelegate : Helps in assigning an event handler delegate to render the server control and its content into its parent control.

Public Events of Control Class

DataBinding : Occurs when the server control binds to a data source
Dispose : Occurs when a server control is released from memory, which is the last stage of the server control life cycle when an ASP.NET page is requested.
Init : Occurs when the server control is initialized, which is the first step in the life cycle.
Load : Occurs when the server control is loaded into the page object.
PreRender : Occurs when the server control is about to render to its containing Page object.
Unload : Occurs when the server control is unloaded from memory.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
