Property Value

A BindingContext for the ToolStrip.

The BindingContext of a ToolStrip returns a single BindingManagerBase for all data-bound controls contained by the ToolStrip. The BindingManagerBase keeps all controls that are bound to the same data source synchronized. For example, setting the Position property of the BindingManagerBase specifies the item in the underlying list that all data-bound controls point to.

For more information about creating a new BindingContext and assigning it to the BindingContext property, see the BindingContext constructor.

Notes to Inheritors: When overriding the BindingContext property in a derived class, use the base class's BindingContext property to extend the base implementation. Otherwise, you must provide all the implementation. You are not required to override both the get and set accessors of the BindingContext property; you can override only one, if needed.
