This example illustrates how to bind the ASPxCloudControl to a data source. The ASPxCloudControl receives data from an MS Access database. The ASPxCloudControl implements specific properties that point to the data fields containing the necessary data. These are the ASPxCloudControl.TextField, ASPxCloudControl.ValueField and ASPxCloudControl.NavigateUrlField properties. The ASPxCloudControl.ItemDataBound event is used to customize values that are to be assigned to tag cloud element properties during data binding.
