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

Provides a component editor for the DataBindings collection of the associated Menu control.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.Design.WebControls
Assembly: System.Design (in

public class MenuBindingsEditor : UITypeEditor

public class MenuBindingsEditor extends UITypeEditor

The MenuBindingsEditor class provides a user interface for editing the MenuItemBinding elements of the DataBindings collection within the associated Menu control.

The MenuBindingsEditor object is invoked by selecting the ellipsis () button on the DataBindings property in the Properties grid of the visual designer, or by choosing Edit Menu Items from the Common Tasks context menu on the control.

The EditValue method edits the values of the data bindings collection of the associated Menu control. The GetEditStyle method gets the editing style that is associated with this editor.

The following code example shows how to use the EditorAttribute attribute to associate the MenuBindingsEditor class and the UITypeEditor class (the bindings editor base class) with a property in a custom control, derived from the WebControl class, that gets and sets a MenuItemCollection collection.

private MenuItemBindingCollection localBindings;

// Associate the MenuBindingsEditor with the DataBindings. 
public MenuItemBindingCollection DataBindings
    get { return localBindings; }
    set { localBindings = value; }
} // DataBindings
