Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.BindingContext
A BindingContext for the control.

Implements

IBindableComponent.BindingContext

The BindingContext of a Control is used to return a single BindingManagerBase for all data-bound controls contained by the Control. The BindingManagerBase keeps all controls that are bound to the same data source synchronized. For example, setting the Position property of the BindingManagerBase specifies the item in the underlying list that all data-bound controls point to.

For more information about creating a new BindingContext and assigning it to the BindingContext property, see the BindingContext.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding the BindingContext property in a derived class, use the base class's BindingContext property to extend the base implementation. Otherwise, you must provide all the implementation. You are not required to override both the get and set accessors of the BindingContext property; you can override only one if needed.

The following code example creates four Binding objects to bind five controls, a DateTimePicker and four TextBox controls, to several data sources. The BindingContext is then used to get the BindingManagerBase for each data source.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
