Remarks

Use the BoundColumn column type in a DataGrid control to display the contents of a field in the data source. The values are listed in a single column. The field is linked to the BoundColumn, so any updates in the data source will reflect in the corresponding cells of the DataGrid control.

Note

This column type is the default for the DataGrid control.

To control appearance of this column, use the style properties of the DataGrid control.

Caution

Text is not HTML encoded before it is displayed in the BoundColumn. This makes it possible to embed script within HTML tags in the text. If the values for this column come from user input, be sure to validate the values to reduce security vulnerabilities.

Constructors

BoundColumn()

Initializes a new instance of the BoundColumn class.

Fields

thisExpr

Represents the string "!". This field is read-only.
