public virtual int LinkCount { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

An integer value representing the number of repository item connections.


The LinkCount property is used internally by container controls to determine the number of elements (grid columns, for instance) connected to the current repository item. Each time a new object connects to a repository item, the number of connections for the item is increased by one. Once the connection between the connected object and the item is removed, the number of connections is automatically decreased.

The repository item can only be deleted from a RepositoryItemCollection when it is not connected to any object (its LinkCount property value is 0).
