NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute class using no parameters.

System_CAPS_pubmethod LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the name of the data source property for the component to which the LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute is bound.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the name of the display member property for the component to which the LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute is bound.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the name of the lookup member for the component to which this attribute is bound.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the name of the value member property for the component to which the LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute is bound.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute instance. (Overrides AttributeEquals.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Overrides AttributeGetHashCode.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod IsDefaultAttribute

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod Match

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod ToString

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubfield System_CAPS_static Default

Represents the default value for the LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetIDsOfNames

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetTypeInfo

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetTypeInfoCount

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeInvoke

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute is used to specify the properties used with lookup-based binding, particularly ListBox and ComboBox controls.

The LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute is specified at the class level. The class can be inherited and does not allow multiple attributes on the same class.

The following code example shows properties used with lookup-based binding.

// The DemoControl class shows properties 
// used with lookup-based binding.
[LookupBindingProperties(
    "DataSource", 
    "DisplayMember", 
    "ValueMember", 
    "LookupMember")]
public class DemoControl : Control
{   
}
' The DemoControl class shows properties 
' used with lookup-based binding.
<LookupBindingProperties( _
"DataSource", _
"DisplayMember", _
"ValueMember", _
"LookupMember")> _
Public Class DemoControl
    Inherits Control
End Class

The LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute attribute must include all four members, except when unsetting values. The following code example shows the ComboBox control.

// The DemoComboBox control shows a standard
// combo box binding definition.
[LookupBindingProperties(
    "DataSource", 
    "DisplayMember", 
    "ValueMember", 
    "SelectedValue")]
public class DemoComboBox : Control
{
}
' The DemoComboBox control shows a standard
' combo box binding definition.
<LookupBindingProperties( _
"DataSource", _
"DisplayMember", _
"ValueMember", _
"SelectedValue")> _
Public Class DemoComboBox
    Inherits Control
End Class

The following code example shows that a control can support both simple binding as well as list binding.

// The DemoComboBox2 class shows that a control can
// support both simple binding as well as list binding.
[LookupBindingProperties(
    "DataSource", 
    "DisplayMember", 
    "ValueMember", 
    "SelectedValue")]
[DefaultBindingProperty("Text")]
public class DemoComboBox2 : Control 
{
}
' The DemoComboBox2 class shows that a control can
' support both simple binding as well as list binding.
<LookupBindingProperties( _
"DataSource", _
"DisplayMember", _
"ValueMember", _
"SelectedValue"), _
DefaultBindingProperty("Text")> _
Public Class DemoComboBox2
    Inherits Control
End Class

The following code example shows that the LookupBindingPropertiesAttribute attribute can be unset by specifying no arguments.

// NonBindableCombo control shows how to unset the
// LookupBindingProperties by specifying no arguments.
[LookupBindingProperties()]
public class NonBindableCombo : Control
{
}
' NonBindableCombo control shows how to unset the
' LookupBindingProperties by specifying no arguments.
<LookupBindingProperties()>  _
Public Class NonBindableCombo
    Inherits Control
