BindingMemberInfo Structure

Contains information that enables a Binding to resolve a data binding to either the property of an object or the property of the current object in a list of objects.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public struct BindingMemberInfo

The BindingMemberInfo type exposes the following members.

Public methodBindingMemberInfoInitializes a new instance of the BindingMemberInfo class.

Public propertyBindingFieldGets the property name of the data-bound object.
Public propertyBindingMemberGets the information that is used to specify the property name of the data-bound object.
Public propertyBindingPathGets the property name, or the period-delimited hierarchy of property names, that comes before the property name of the data-bound object.

Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified object is equal to this BindingMemberInfo. (Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this BindingMemberInfo. (Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns the fully qualified type name of this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)

Public operatorStatic memberEqualityDetermines whether two BindingMemberInfo objects are equal.
Public operatorStatic memberInequalityDetermines whether two BindingMemberInfo objects are not equal.

The BindingMemberInfo is returned by the BindingMemberInfo property of the Binding class.

The BindingMemberInfo is created from the string passed to the BindingMemberInfo constructor.

The following code example prints the BindingPath, BindingField, BindingMember for each control on a form.

private void PrintBindingMemberInfo()
   foreach(Control c in this.Controls)
      foreach(Binding b in c.DataBindings)
         Console.WriteLine("\n" + c.ToString());
         BindingMemberInfo bInfo = b.BindingMemberInfo;
         Console.WriteLine("Binding Path \t" + bInfo.BindingPath);
         Console.WriteLine("Binding Field \t" + bInfo.BindingField);
         Console.WriteLine("Binding Member \t" + bInfo.BindingMember);
