Gets a value indicating whether the DataSourceID property is set.

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

protected bool IsBoundUsingDataSourceID { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

The value true is returned if the DataSourceID property is set to value other than String.Empty; otherwise, the value is false.

Controls such as GridView, DetailsView, FormView, and Menu use the IsBoundUsingDataSourceID property to determine whether the data-bound control is bound to an ASP.NET 2.0 data source control, such as an ObjectDataSource or SqlDataSource.

The following code example demonstrates how the IsBoundUsingDataSourceID property is used by a derived data-bound control class. The IsBoundUsingDataSourceID property is used in the PerformSelect method implementation to determine whether the DataBinding event should be raised. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataBoundControl class.

protected override void PerformSelect() {            

   // Call OnDataBinding here if bound to a data source using the
   // DataSource property (instead of a DataSourceID), because the
   // databinding statement is evaluated before the call to GetData.       
    if (! IsBoundUsingDataSourceID) {
        OnDataBinding(EventArgs.Empty);
    }            

    // The GetData method retrieves the DataSourceView object from  
    // the IDataSource associated with the data-bound control.            
    GetData().Select(CreateDataSourceSelectArguments(), 
        OnDataSourceViewSelectCallback);

    // The PerformDataBinding method has completed.
    RequiresDataBinding = false;
    MarkAsDataBound();

    // Raise the DataBound event.
    OnDataBound(EventArgs.Empty);
}
