DataBinder.GetDataItem Method (Object)
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
The object reference against which the expression is evaluated. This must be a valid object identifier in the page's specified language.
Return ValueAn object that represents the container's declared data item. Returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if no data item is found or if the container evaluates to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
This method calls the GetDataItem method, ignoring its foundDataItem parameter when returning the result.
An object's data item is identified in one of two ways. If the container object implements the IDataItemContainer interface, the DataItem property identifies the data item, and its value is returned. Otherwise, the method attempts to resolve and return a container property named "DataItem".
