ListControlDesigner.DataBind Method (BaseDataBoundControl)


Binds the specified control to the design-time data source.

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

protected override void DataBind(
	BaseDataBoundControl dataBoundControl


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.BaseDataBoundControl

The associated control derived from the ListControl, or a copy of that control.

For the DataBoundControlDesigner base class, the DataBind method sets the DataSource and DataSourceID properties of the DataBoundControl object to reference the design-time data source, then calls the BaseDataBoundControl.DataBind method, and then restores the DataSource and DataSourceID properties to their original values.

For the ListControlDesigner class, however, the DataBind method has no functionality, because ListItem objects were just added to the Items collection.
