BindingSource.SupportsSearching Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets a value indicating whether the data source supports searching with the Find method.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public virtual bool SupportsSearching { get; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_SupportsSearching ()

public function get SupportsSearching () : boolean

Property Value

true if the list is a IBindingList and supports the searching with the Find method; otherwise, false.

If the data source is not an IBindingList, SupportsSearching always returns false.

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (binding1.SupportsSearching != true)
        MessageBox.Show("Cannot search the list.");
    else
    {
        int foundIndex = binding1.Find("Name", textBox1.Text);
        if (foundIndex > -1)
            listBox1.SelectedIndex = foundIndex;
        else
            MessageBox.Show("Font was not found.");
    }
}
