public class HyperLinkDataBindingHandler : DataBindingHandler

public class HyperLinkDataBindingHandler extends DataBindingHandler
Not applicable.

The following code example creates a class, named CustomHyperLinkDataBindingHandler, which derives from the HyperLinkDataBindingHandler class. It resolves design-time data binding for the CustomHyperLink class using the DataBindControl method.

// Derive a class from the HyperLinkDataBindingHandler. It will 
// resolve  data binding for the CustomHyperlink at design time.
public class CustomHyperLinkDataBindingHandler : 
    // Override the DataBindControl to set property values in  
    // the DataBindingCollection at design time.
    public override void DataBindControl(IDesignerHost designerHost, 
        Control control)
        DataBindingCollection bindings = 
        DataBinding imageBinding = bindings["ImageUrl"];

           // If Text is empty, supply a default value.
        if (!(imageBinding == null))
            CustomHyperLink hype = (CustomHyperLink)control;
            hype.ImageUrl = "Image URL.";

        // Call the base method to bind the control.
        base.DataBindControl(designerHost, control);
    } // DataBindControl
} // CustomHyperLinkDataBindingHandler
