Object null

The data source object from which the data-bound control retrieves its data.


Use the DataBind() method to bind a control to the specified data source.

You cannot specify this property in a theme.

<dx:ASPxTitleIndex ID="ASPxTitleIndex1" runat="server">
    <!-- ... -->

    ASPxTitleIndex1.DataSource = names;


For ASPxRichEdit only:

The DataSource property specifies a data source for the Mail Merge feature. The property accepts an object that implements the IList interface. If a bound data source contains multiple data tables, use the DataMember property to specify a data member.
