Property Value

Type: System.Object
The data source of the list that is being bound.

To bind a data source to a list, you must first use the control's DataBind method to ensure data binding. The data source can either be of type IEnumerable, or it can be of type IListSource. If the data source is of type IListSource, you can use the DataMember field to specify which member to extract.
