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

Object DataItem { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
An object that represents the value to use when data-binding operations are performed.

The DataItem property identifies an object that is used in data-binding operations and late-binding expressions.

The following code example demonstrates how to implement a type that uses the IDataItemContainer interface. The SimpleSpreadsheetRow class is a container class with a member named Data. It implements the IDataItemContainer interface by mapping the Data property to the DataItem property. Simplified data-binding expressions can bind to the data object using the DataItem property.

object IDataItemContainer.DataItem
        return Data;
