Provides a base class for a data-binding handler.
Assembly: System.Design (in System.Design.dll)
Binds the specified control.
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)
Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
DataBindingHandlerAttribute in the code for the control.provides a base class for data-binding handlers. A data-binding handler can be used within a designer to perform data-binding to enable a meaningful display of the control on the design surface. Typically a control's designer is responsible for this functionality. However, when a control is not live on the design surface, such as within the template of another control, it does not have a designer, and this functionality is provided by a data-binding handler if one has been specified with a
To use a data-binding handler, the control which has the data-bound property or properties must have a DataBindingHandlerAttribute specified within its code that indicates the type of data-binding handler to use.
For example, the Label control is associated with the TextDataBindingHandler class through a DataBindingHandlerAttribute in the code for the Label class. Within a template for a DataList, a Label control whose text property has been data bound displays the word "DataBound" on the label. Without the data-binding handler, the label would be invisible at design-time, as it does not have a designer to bind its data-bound properties while in a templated control at design-time.
To implement a data-binding handler, define a new class that derives from this class and implement the DataBindControl method to set the appropriate properties.
