Gets a value indicating whether the DataSourceID property is set.

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

Protected ReadOnly Property IsBoundUsingDataSourceID As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

The value true is returned if the DataSourceID property is set to value other than String.Empty; otherwise, the value is false.

Controls such as GridView, DetailsView, FormView, and Menu use the IsBoundUsingDataSourceID property to determine whether the data-bound control is bound to an ASP.NET 2.0 data source control, such as an ObjectDataSource or SqlDataSource.

The following code example demonstrates how the IsBoundUsingDataSourceID property is used by a derived data-bound control class. The IsBoundUsingDataSourceID property is used in the PerformSelect method implementation to determine whether the DataBinding event should be raised. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataBoundControl class.

Protected Overrides Sub PerformSelect()

    ' Call OnDataBinding here if bound to a data source using the 
    ' DataSource property (instead of a DataSourceID) because the 
    ' data-binding statement is evaluated before the call to GetData.
    If Not IsBoundUsingDataSourceID Then
        OnDataBinding(EventArgs.Empty)
    End If

    ' The GetData method retrieves the DataSourceView object from the 
    ' IDataSource associated with the data-bound control.            
    GetData().Select(CreateDataSourceSelectArguments(), _
        AddressOf OnDataSourceViewSelectCallback)

    ' The PerformDataBinding method has completed.
    RequiresDataBinding = False
    MarkAsDataBound()

    ' Raise the DataBound event.
        OnDataBound(EventArgs.Empty)

End Sub 'PerformSelect
