Examples

The following code example defines a data-binding handler, named MyDataBindingHandler, to be used by the designer in editing mode. On exiting the editing mode, the Text property value is displayed.


using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.Design;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.ComponentModel.Design;


namespace CustomControls
{
  [
    DataBindingHandler(typeof(MyDataBindingHandler)),
    ToolboxData("<{0}:MyLabel runat=server></{0}:MyLabel>")
  ]
  public class MyLabel : Label 
  {
    public  MyLabel()
    { 
      // Insert your code here.
    } 
  }

  public class MyDataBindingHandler : DataBindingHandler
  {
    public override void DataBindControl(IDesignerHost host, Control control)
    {
      ((Label)control).Text = "Added by data binding handler.";
    }
  }

}


Namespace CustomControls

  <DataBindingHandler(GetType(MyDataBindingHandler)), ToolboxData("<{0}:MyLabel runat=server></{0}:MyLabel>")>  _
    Public Class MyLabel
      Inherits Label
      
      Public Sub New()
        'Insert your code here.
      End Sub
      
    End Class
   
    Public Class MyDataBindingHandler
      Inherits DataBindingHandler
      
      Public Overrides Sub DataBindControl(host As IDesignerHost, control As Control)
         CType(control, Label).Text = "Added by data binding handler."
      End Sub
      
    End Class
    
End Namespace 'CustomControls
