The DataSource object for the specified index value.

The number or numeric expression passed as the argument for index must evaluate to a number from 0 to the value of the Count property minus 1.

After you have set a reference to the DataSource object that the Item property returns, you can access any of its properties or methods.

This member can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.

This type or member can be accessed from code running in forms opened in Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 or in a Web browser.

In the following example, the first DataSource object in the DataSourceCollection of the form template is retrieved by index value and assigned to a variable.

DataSource firstDataSource = this.DataSources[0];
