BindingSource.BindingComplete Event

 

Occurs when all the clients have been bound to this BindingSource.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

Public Event BindingComplete As BindingCompleteEventHandler

The BindingComplete event occurs after all the clients, typically controls, have been bound to the current BindingSource. 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.

For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example demonstrates handling the BindingComplete event. To run this code, paste it into an empty code file.
