Property Value

An Object that represents the data item that is bound to the menu item. The default value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), which indicates that the menu item is not bound to any data item.

When the Menu control is bound to a data source, such as an XmlDataSource object, this property is set to the data item that is bound to this specific menu item. This property is commonly used to access the value of the data item.


This property is available only after data binding has occurred.
