Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.Control

The Control that the binding belongs to.

The following code example gets the BindingManagerBase for a specific data source, and prints information about each Control property that is bound to the data source. The example uses the Bindings property of the BindingManagerBase to get all controls.

Private Sub PrintBoundControls1
   ' Gets the BindingManagerBase for the Customers table.
   Dim myBindingBase As BindingManagerBase = _
   Me.BindingContext(ds, "Customers")

   ' Prints the information of each control managed by
   ' the BindingManagerBase.
   Dim b As Binding
   For Each b In myBindingBase.Bindings
      Console.WriteLine(b.Control.ToString)
   Next
End Sub

Private Sub PrintBoundControls2
   ' Gets the BindingManagerBase for a child table of
   ' the Customers table. The RelationName of a DataRelation
   ' is appended to the parent table's name.
   Dim myBindingBase As BindingManagerBase = _
   Me.BindingContext(ds, "Customers.CustToOrders")


   ' Prints the information of each control managed by
   ' the BindingManagerBase.
   Dim b As Binding
   For Each b In myBindingBase.Bindings
      Console.WriteLine(b.Control.ToString)
   Next
End Sub
