Control.DataBind Method (Boolean)

Binds a data source to the invoked server control and all its child controls with an option to raise the DataBinding event.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

protected virtual void DataBind(
	bool raiseOnDataBinding
)

Parameters

raiseOnDataBinding
Type: System.Boolean

true if the DataBinding event is raised; otherwise, false.

Use the Control.DataBind(Boolean) method in a scenario when your custom control overrides the DataBind method and implements the IDataItemContainer interface. In this scenario, the custom control calls the Control.DataBind(Boolean) method with raiseOnDataBinding set to false to ensure that the base class's DataBind method gets called.

The Control.DataBind() method invokes the Control.DataBind(Boolean) method with raiseOnDataBinding set to true.

NoteNote

Calling the Control.DataBind(Boolean) method with raiseOnDataBinding set to false causes any child controls to be data bound with the Control.DataBind() method.
