ItemStyle Property

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

public TableItemStyle ItemStyle { get; }
/** @property */

public function get ItemStyle () : TableItemStyle

Not applicable.

Property Value

A TableItemStyle that governs the appearance of text displayed in a DataControlField.

The ItemStyle property governs the appearance of any text data displayed by a type derived from DataControlField. For example, when you bind a BoundField control to text data, you can use the ItemStyle property to alter the appearance of the text that is displayed.

The following code example demonstrates how to declaratively set the ItemStyle property on the BoundField objects used to display FirstName and LastName data in a DetailsView control. The DetailsView control has the AutoGenerateRows property set to false, which enables it to display a subset of the data returned by the SelectCommand property.
