DataBinder.GetDataItem Method (Object)

Retrieves an object's declared data item.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public static Object GetDataItem(
	Object container
)

Parameters

container
Type: System.Object
The object reference against which the expression is evaluated. This must be a valid object identifier in the page's specified language.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
An object that represents the container's declared data item. Returns null if no data item is found or if the container evaluates to null.

This method calls the GetDataItem(Object, Boolean) method, ignoring its foundDataItem parameter when returning the result.

An object's data item is identified in one of two ways. If the container object implements the IDataItemContainer interface, the DataItem property identifies the data item, and its value is returned. Otherwise, the method attempts to resolve and return a container property named "DataItem".
