public bool FormattingEnabled { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if type conversion and formatting of control property data is enabled; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Setting this property to true also enables error-handling behavior and causes the BindingComplete event to be raised. The handler of this event can take the appropriate action, based on the success, error, or exceptions in the binding process, by examining the BindingCompleteState property of the BindingCompleteEventArgs parameter.
