BaseDataBoundControl.OnDataPropertyChanged Method

Rebinds the data-bound control to its data after one of the base data source identification properties changes.

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

protected virtual void OnDataPropertyChanged()


An attempt was made to change the property value during the data-binding phase of the control.

The OnDataPropertyChanged method is called when the DataSource, DataSourceID, or DataMember property value changes any time after the page's PreRender event has occurred.

The following code example shows a property that belongs to a derived data-bound control class. The example demonstrates how a data-bound control can call the OnDataPropertyChanged method if a property that identifies a data source is changed after the data-bound control is initialized. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataBoundControl class.

public string DataTextField {
    get {
        object o = ViewState["DataTextField"];
        return((o == null) ? string.Empty : (string)o);
    set {
        ViewState["DataTextField"] = value;
        if (Initialized) {
