ASPxCloudControl.TextField Property

Gets or sets the data source field which provides item descriptions.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v21.1.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue("")]
public string TextField { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String

String.Empty

A string value that specifies the name of the data source field which contains item descriptions.

Remarks

An item’s description (text) is rendered as a link that when clicked, allows the user to drill into the selected category. When the ASPxCloudControl is data bound, the name of the data field that provides item descriptions is specified by the TextField property. Otherwise, if the control functions in unbound mode, use the item’s CloudControlItem.Text property instead.

Example

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.
