Examples

The following code example demonstrates the MoveNext, MoveFirst, Current, and Position members. To run this example, paste the code into a form that imports the System.Drawing.Drawing2D namespace and contains a BindingSource named BindingSource1 and a button named button1. Associate the Form1_Load and Form1_Paint methods with the Load and Paint events for the form, and associate the button1_click method with the Click event for button1. Visual Basic users will need to add a reference to System.Data.dll.

    void Form1_Load(Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e)
    {
        // Set the data source to the Brush type and populate
        // bindingSource1; with some brushes.
        bindingSource1->DataSource = System::Drawing::Brush::typeid;
        bindingSource1->Add(
            gcnew TextureBrush(gcnew Bitmap(Button::typeid, "Button.bmp")));
        bindingSource1->Add(gcnew HatchBrush(HatchStyle::Cross, Color::Red));
        bindingSource1->Add(gcnew SolidBrush(Color::Blue));
    }


private:
    void moveNextButton_Click(Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e)
    {
        // If you are not at the end of the list, move to the next item
        // in the BindingSource.
        if (bindingSource1->Position + 1 < bindingSource1->Count)
        {
            bindingSource1->MoveNext();
        }
        // Otherwise, move back to the first item.
        else
        {
            bindingSource1->MoveFirst();
        }
        // Force the form to repaint.
        this->Invalidate();
    }

    void Form1_Paint(Object^ sender, PaintEventArgs^ e)
    {
        // Get the current item in the BindingSource.
        Brush^ item = (Brush^) bindingSource1->Current;

        // If the current type is a TextureBrush, fill an ellipse.

Remarks

When setting the Position property, out-of-range values are treated in the following manner:

  • Negative values are treated as 0.

  • Values greater than or equal to Count are treated as Count minus 1.

Changing the Position property will adjust the Current property likewise.
