The BaseDataBoundControl with which this designer is associated.

When you override the DataBind method in a designer that is derived from the BaseDataBoundControlDesigner class, perform the necessary actions to set up the data-bound control so that when the design-time markup is retrieved, the control renders properly. Typically, you will associate a design-time data source rather than the live data source, for performance reasons.
