Binding.BindsDirectlyToSource Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to evaluate the Path relative to the data item or the DataSourceProvider object.

 property bool BindsDirectlyToSource { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool BindsDirectlyToSource { get; set; }
member this.BindsDirectlyToSource : bool with get, set
Public Property BindsDirectlyToSource As Boolean

Property Value

false to evaluate the path relative to the data item itself; otherwise, true. The default is false.


The normal behavior (when this property is false) includes special treatment for DataSourceProvider objects. In this case, the binding engine evaluates the Path relative to the object obtained from the Data property. In addition, the binding listens for the DataChanged event and reacts accordingly. Setting this property to true overrides this behavior and gives the binding access to properties of the DataSourceProvider object itself.
