BindingMemberInfo.BindingMember BindingMemberInfo.BindingMember BindingMemberInfo.BindingMember BindingMemberInfo.BindingMember Property


Gets the information that is used to specify the property name of the data-bound object.

 property System::String ^ BindingMember { System::String ^ get(); };
public string BindingMember { get; }
member this.BindingMember : string
Public ReadOnly Property BindingMember As String

Property Value

An empty string (""), a single property name, or a hierarchy of period-delimited property names that resolves to the property name of the final data-bound object.


The following code example gets the BindingMemberInfo object of each Binding on a form, and prints the BindingPath, BindingField, and BindingMember property values of BindingMemberInfo.

   void PrintBindingMemberInfo()
      Console::WriteLine( "\n BindingMemberInfo" );
      for each ( Control^ thisControl in this->Controls )
         for each ( Binding^ thisBinding in thisControl->DataBindings )
            BindingMemberInfo bInfo = thisBinding->BindingMemberInfo;
            Console::WriteLine( "\t BindingPath: {0}", bInfo.BindingPath );
            Console::WriteLine( "\t BindingField: {0}", bInfo.BindingField );
            Console::WriteLine( "\t BindingMember: {0}", bInfo.BindingMember );
private void PrintBindingMemberInfo()
   Console.WriteLine("\n BindingMemberInfo");
   foreach(Control thisControl in this.Controls)
      foreach(Binding thisBinding in thisControl.DataBindings)
         BindingMemberInfo bInfo = thisBinding.BindingMemberInfo;
         Console.WriteLine("\t BindingPath: " + bInfo.BindingPath);
         Console.WriteLine("\t BindingField: " + bInfo.BindingField);
         Console.WriteLine("\t BindingMember: " + 
Private Sub PrintBindingMemberInfo()
   Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + " BindingMemberInfo")
   Dim thisControl As Control
   Dim thisBinding As Binding
   For Each thisControl In  Me.Controls    
      For Each thisBinding In  thisControl.DataBindings
         Dim bInfo As BindingMemberInfo =  _
         Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Tab + _
         " BindingPath: "  + bInfo.BindingPath)
         Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Tab + _
         " BindingField: " + bInfo.BindingField)
         Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Tab + _
         " BindingMember: "  + bInfo.BindingMember)
      Next thisBinding
   Next thisControl
End Sub


A BindingMemberInfo is created automatically when you call the BindingMemberInfo constructor with a control-property name, data source, and navigation path. The dataMember parameter contains the BindingMember string.

The BindingMember is the period delimited combination of the BindingPath and BindingField values. For example, when a new Binding is created by using a dataMember parameter of "Customers.custToOrders.OrderDate", BindingMember will return "Customers.custToOrders.OrderDate".
