dataSrc of type DOMString

Sets or retrieves the source of the data for data binding.

Tabular and single-valued data consumers use the dataSrc property to specify a binding. The property takes a string that corresponds to the unique identifier of a data source object (DSO) on the page. The string must be prefixed by a number sign (#).

When the dataSrc property is applied to a tabular data consumer, the entire data set is repeated by the consuming elements.

When the dataSrc property is applied to a table, any contained single-valued consumer objects that specify a dataFld property are repeated for each record in the supplied data set. To complete the binding, the binding agent interrogates the enclosing table for its data source. A tabular data consumer contained within another tabular data consumer (table) must specify an explicit dataSrc.
