I'm trying to create a custom web part that consumes from an OOTB list view web part's "Send Row of Data To" producer. The list has a lookup field to another list, and I need that value (the associated item in that other list) as a parameter in my custom web part.

Resources I've looked through:

What provider interface does the OOTB list view web part use? IRowProvider looked like a candidate, but it's listed as obsolete.

Hopefully, once I know what interface is being used, I can find the api and figure out how to drill into the row's data.

side note: Does anyone know where I can find the api for the OOTB list view web part? Perhaps it's documented in there? So far, I've only found this and this, and they haven't been helpful.

Tried IWebPartRow?

Indeed, this is the solution. I found that class after tinkering half an hour more. My frustration was making me desperate ~_~. – Kache Feb 5 '11 at 7:04
