The GetValue method is a helper method used to determine the value of a field. If the BoundField object is being displayed in a designer and the field value can not be determined at design time, the value returned from the GetDesignTimeValue method is returned instead of the actual field value.

NoteNote:

This method is used primarily by control developers.

Notes to Inheritors: When extending the BoundField class, you can override this method to provide a custom routine to determine a field's value.
