Subclassing an Object
Posted on 2007-11-29
I am trying to implement a solution that will display a radiobuttonlist to the user that is populated from a dataset. I am currently using the datavaluefield and datatextfield properties to utilize the specified column in the dataset; however, I'd like to add some addition attributes to each radio button in the list that are populated when the radiobuttonlist is bound to the dataset ..
I have already created a class and inherited the radiobuttonlist class, but I'm not sure where to go from here ... any help is greatly appreciated.
For example, I'd like to attach 3 other pieces of data:
radio1.DataValueField = "id"
radio1.DataTextField = "displaycolumn"
radio1.SubscriberID = "subscriberID" <--- new
radio1.GenKey = "consumergenkey" <--- new
radio1.CustCov = "custcovnumber" <--- new
