How do I databind an EditControl to a datasource?

 

Please refer to the code sample given below which shows how an EditControl can be databound to a table in a DataSet .

[C#]//create a new DataSet

this.dataset = new DataSet("MyDataSet");                                   

//create a new DataTable

this.table = new DataTable("MyDataTable"); 

//create a new DataColumn and add it to the DataTable

this.datacolumn = new DataColumn("Code",System.Type.GetType("System.String"));

this.table.Columns.Add(this.datacolumn);

//create a new DataRow, and assign it to the specific column

//assign a string value ‘program’ to that DataRow-DataColumn field

this.datarow = this.table.NewRow();

this.datarow[this.datacolumn] = program; 

// Add this DataRow to the DataTable

this.table.Rows.Add(this.datarow); 

//Add this DataTable to the DataSet

this.dataset.Tables.Add(this.table);

// Databinding EditControl.Text to the DataColumn "Code" // where "Code" contains the program to be displayed in the EditControl this.editControl1.DataBindings.Add("Text", this.dataset.Tables[0], "Code");

[VB.NET]'create a new DataSet   Me.dataset = New DataSet("MyDataSet")                                      'create a new DataTable   Me.table = New DataTable("MyDataTable")   'create a new DataColumn and add it to the DataTable   Me.datacolumn = New DataColumn("Code",System.Type.GetType("System.String"))   Me.table.Columns.Add(Me.datacolumn)   'create a new DataRow, and assign it to the specific column   'assign a string value ‘program’ to that DataRow-DataColumn field   Me.datarow = Me.table.NewRow()   Me.datarow(Me.datacolumn) = program   ' Add this DataRow to the DataTable   Me.table.Rows.Add(Me.datarow)   'Add this DataTable to the DataSet   Me.dataset.Tables.Add(Me.table)   ' Databinding EditControl.Text to the DataColumn "Code" ' where "Code" contains the program to be displayed in the EditControl Me.editControl1.DataBindings.Add("Text", Me.dataset.Tables(0), "Code")
