BindingMemberInfo Structure

Contains information that enables a Binding to resolve a data binding to either the property of an object or the property of the current object in a list of objects.

For a list of all members of this type, see BindingMemberInfo Members.


[Visual Basic]
Public Structure BindingMemberInfo
public struct BindingMemberInfo
public __value struct BindingMemberInfo

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the structures in the .NET Framework, but you cannot define your own.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


The BindingMemberInfo is returned by the BindingMemberInfo property of the Binding class.

The BindingMemberInfo is created from the string passed to the Binding constructor.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example prints the BindingPath, BindingField, BindingMember for each control on a form.

[Visual Basic] 
Private Sub PrintBindingMemberInfo()
  Dim c As Control
  Dim b As Binding
  For Each c In  Me.Controls         
     For Each b In  c.DataBindings
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + c.ToString())
        Dim bInfo As BindingMemberInfo = b.BindingMemberInfo
        Console.WriteLine("Binding Path " + ControlChars.Tab _
                          + bInfo.BindingPath)
        Console.WriteLine("Binding Field " + ControlChars.Tab _
                          + bInfo.BindingField)
        Console.WriteLine("Binding Member " + ControlChars.Tab _
                          + bInfo.BindingMember)
      Next b
   Next c
End Sub

private void PrintBindingMemberInfo()
   foreach(Control c in this.Controls)
      foreach(Binding b in c.DataBindings)
         Console.WriteLine("\n" + c.ToString());
         BindingMemberInfo bInfo = b.BindingMemberInfo;
         Console.WriteLine("Binding Path \t" + bInfo.BindingPath);
         Console.WriteLine("Binding Field \t" + bInfo.BindingField);
         Console.WriteLine("Binding Member \t" + bInfo.BindingMember);

   void PrintBindingMemberInfo() {
      System::Collections::IEnumerator* myEnum = this->Controls->GetEnumerator();
      while (myEnum->MoveNext()) {
         Control* c = __try_cast<Control*>(myEnum->Current);
         System::Collections::IEnumerator* myEnum = c->DataBindings->GetEnumerator();
         while (myEnum->MoveNext()) {
            Binding* b = __try_cast<Binding*>(myEnum->Current);
            Console::WriteLine(S"\n {0}", c);
            BindingMemberInfo bInfo = b->BindingMemberInfo;
            Console::WriteLine(S"Binding Path \t {0}", bInfo.BindingPath);
            Console::WriteLine(S"Binding Field \t {0}", bInfo.BindingField);
            Console::WriteLine(S"Binding Member \t {0}", bInfo.BindingMember);
