Binding(String, Object, String) Binding(String, Object, String) Binding(String, Object, String) Binding(String, Object, String)

Initializes a new instance of the Binding class that simple-binds the indicated control property to the specified data member of the data source.

public:
 Binding(System::String ^ propertyName, System::Object ^ dataSource, System::String ^ dataMember);
public Binding (string propertyName, object dataSource, string dataMember);
new System.Windows.Forms.Binding : string * obj * string -> System.Windows.Forms.Binding
Public Sub New (propertyName As String, dataSource As Object, dataMember As String)

Parameters

propertyName
String String String String

The name of the control property to bind.

dataSource
Object Object Object Object

An Object that represents the data source.

dataMember
String String String String

The property or list to bind to.

Exceptions

propertyName is neither a valid property of a control nor an empty string ("").

The property given by propertyName does not exist on the control.

Examples

The following code example binds a TextBox control to a table column in a DataSet named myDataSet. The example requires that you have declared myDataSet in the declarations section of the module.

private:
   void CreateDataSet()
   {
      myDataSet = gcnew DataSet( "myDataSet" );
      /* Populates the DataSet with tables, relations, and 
         constraints. */
   }

   void BindTextBoxToDataSet()
   {
      /* Binds a TextBox control to a DataColumn named
      CompanyName in the DataTable named Suppliers. */
      textBox1->DataBindings->Add(
         "Text", myDataSet, "Suppliers.CompanyName" );
   }
private void CreateDataSet()
{
   myDataSet = new DataSet("myDataSet");
   /* Populates the DataSet with tables, relations, and 
      constraints. */
}

private void BindTextBoxToDataSet()
{
   /* Binds a TextBox control to a DataColumn named
   CompanyName in the DataTable named Suppliers. */
   textBox1.DataBindings.Add
   ("Text", myDataSet, "Suppliers.CompanyName");
}
   
Private Sub CreateDataSet
   myDataSet = new DataSet("myDataSet")
   ' Populates the DataSet with tables, relations, and
   ' constraints.
End Sub

Private Sub BindTextBoxToDataSet 
   ' Binds a TextBox control to a column in the DataSet.
   textBox1.DataBindings.Add _
   ("Text", myDataSet, "Suppliers.CompanyName")
End Sub

Remarks

You can specify an instance of any of the following classes for the data source:

See the Binding class for more information about creating the dataMember string.

When you create a binding to a control's property, the new Binding inspects the events exposed by the bound control and attaches to two particular events:

If you attempt to bind to a property that does not exist, an ArgumentException will be thrown when the Binding is added to the control's Control.DataBindings collection.
