Binds the data source to the GridView control. This method cannot be inherited.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
Use the method to bind data from a data source to the GridView control. This method resolves all data-binding expressions in the active template of the control.
Instead of manually calling the DataBind method, you can use model binding with your DataBind control by setting the SelectMethod property to the name of a method that returns data for the GridView. The GridView is then automatically populated with the data that is returned from the select method. Model binding can simplify your code for working with data. For more information, see Model Binding and Web Forms.
