ListObject.SourceType Property

 

Gets the current source of the list.

Namespace:   Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.dll)

XlListObjectSourceType SourceType { get; }

The following code example creates a DataTable and a ListObject, and then binds the ListObject to the DataTable. It then displays the source of the list in a message.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void ListObject_SourceType()
{
    // Create a new DataSet and DataTable.
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    DataTable dt = ds.Tables.Add("Customers");
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("LastName"));
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("FirstName"));

    // Add a new row to the DataTable.
    DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
    dr["LastName"] = "Chan";
    dr["FirstName"] = "Gareth";
    dt.Rows.Add(dr);

    // Create a list object.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ListObject list1 =
        this.Controls.AddListObject(
        this.Range["A1"], "list1");

    // Bind the list object to the DataTable.
    list1.AutoSetDataBoundColumnHeaders = true;
    list1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers", "LastName",
        "FirstName");

    // Get the source type and display it in a message.
    MessageBox.Show("The source type of list1 is " +
        list1.SourceType.ToString() + ".");
}
