Remarks

By default, the values of the field specified by the DataImageUrlField property can be modified by the user when a data-bound control is in edit mode. To prevent the user from changing the values of the field, set this property to true.

Note

In an ImageField object, the DataImageUrlField property usually contains the name of the field that contains the URLs to the images displayed in the object.
