BoundColumn Class

A column type for the DataGrid control that is bound to a field in a data source.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public class BoundColumn : DataGridColumn
public class BoundColumn extends DataGridColumn
public class BoundColumn extends DataGridColumn
Not applicable.

Use the BoundColumn column type in a DataGrid control to display the contents of a field in the data source. The values are listed in a single column. The field is linked to the BoundColumn, so any updates in the data source will reflect in the corresponding cells of the DataGrid control.

NoteNote:

This column type is the default for the DataGrid control.

To control appearance of this column, use the style properties of the DataGrid control.

Caution noteCaution:

Text is not HTML encoded before it is displayed in the BoundColumn. This makes it possible to embed script within HTML tags in the text. If the values for this column come from user input, be sure to validate the values to reduce security vulnerabilities.

The following example demonstrates how to use a BoundColumn column type in the DataGrid control to display the fields in a data source.
