Data-binds the specified control.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.Design
Assembly:  System.Design (in System.Design.dll)

public override void DataBindControl(
	IDesignerHost designerHost,
	Control control


Type: System.ComponentModel.Design.IDesignerHost

An object implementing IDesignerHost for the document that contains the control.

Type: System.Web.UI.Control

The Control to data-bind.

The DataBindControl method of TextDataBindingHandler sets the Text property of the control, if it exists, to a sample data string.

This method should be implemented in a derived class to provide functionality to a custom data-binding handler. The logic for the data-binding should be implemented within this method, and can be specific to the type or types that the handler is binding a property or properties on.

Notes to Implementers:

Most data binding handlers need to examine the data-bindings collection on the control using the IDataBindingsAccessor interface to determine if any specific properties it can handle are data-bound.
