Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of the data member to map the column style to.

The comparison used to match the MappingName to the data member is case-insensitive.

This DataGridColumnStyle is used to render the data in the indicated data member whenever the data source matches the one indicated by the MappingName property of the DataGridTableStyle that contains this column style.

The DataGridColumnStyle.MappingName property is usually set to the ColumnName of a DataColumn.

The following code example creates a DataGridTableStyle, and adds two DataGridColumnStyle objects to the GridColumnStylesCollection. The MappingName for each DataGridColumnStyle is set to the ColumnName of a DataColumn.

private void AddDataGridTableStyle()
   // Create a new DataGridTableStyle and set MappingName.
   DataGridTableStyle myGridStyle = 
   new DataGridTableStyle();
   myGridStyle.MappingName = "Customers";

   // Create two DataGridColumnStyle objects.
   DataGridColumnStyle colStyle1 =
   new DataGridTextBoxColumn();
   colStyle1.MappingName = "firstName";

   DataGridColumnStyle colStyle2 =
   new DataGridBoolColumn();
   colStyle2.MappingName = "Current";

   // Add column styles to table style.

   // Add the grid style to the GridStylesCollection.
