Control.DataBinding Event

Occurs when the server control binds to a data source.

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

public event EventHandler DataBinding
/** @event */
public void add_DataBinding (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_DataBinding (EventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

This event notifies the server control to perform any data-binding logic that has been written for it.
