BindingSource.Current Property

Gets the current item in the list.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public Object Current { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
An Object that represents the current item in the underlying list represented by the List property, or null if the list has no items.

Use the Current property to access the current item, but use the List property to get the entire list. To determine the type of the current object, use the GetType, or ToString methods.

To change the current item, set the Position property to a new integral value, or use one of the navigation methods such as MoveNext.

The following code example demonstrates the Current property. To run this example, paste the code into a form and call the PopulateBindingSourceWithFonts method from the form's Load event handling method.

public BindingSource bindingSource1 = new BindingSource();
TextBox box1 = new TextBox();

private void PopulateBindingSourceWithFonts()
{
    bindingSource1.CurrentChanged += new EventHandler(bindingSource1_CurrentChanged);
    bindingSource1.Add(new Font(FontFamily.Families[2], 8.0F));
    bindingSource1.Add(new Font(FontFamily.Families[4], 9.0F));
    bindingSource1.Add(new Font(FontFamily.Families[6], 10.0F));
    bindingSource1.Add(new Font(FontFamily.Families[8], 11.0F));
    bindingSource1.Add(new Font(FontFamily.Families[10], 12.0F));
    DataGridView view1 = new DataGridView();
    view1.DataSource = bindingSource1;
    view1.AutoGenerateColumns = true;
    view1.Dock = DockStyle.Top;
    this.Controls.Add(view1);
    box1.Dock = DockStyle.Bottom;
    box1.Text = "Sample Text";
    this.Controls.Add(box1);
    box1.DataBindings.Add("Text", bindingSource1, "Name");
    view1.Columns[7].DisplayIndex = 0;

}

void bindingSource1_CurrentChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    box1.Font = (Font)bindingSource1.Current;
}
