The ComplexBindingPropertiesAttribute is used to specify the properties used with complex data binding, such as binding based on System.Collections.IList.

The ComplexBindingPropertiesAttribute attribute is specified at the class level. It is inheritable and does not allow multiple attributes on the same class.

A control can support both simple binding, with DefaultBindingPropertyAttribute, as well as complex binding.

For more information about using attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.

The following code example demonstrates using ComplexBindingPropertiesAttribute to identify a control's DataSource and DataMember properties for data binding. For a full code listing, see How to: Apply Attributes in Windows Forms Controls.
