public override string NameField { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A string value that specifies the name of the required data source field.


The NameField property is in effect if the NavBarItemDataFields control is bound to a data source (via the ASPxDataWebControlBase.DataSourceID or ASPxDataWebControlBase.DataSource property).

Use the NameField property to specify the bound data source’s data field (or an xml element’s attribute) which stores unique identifier names of navbar items. The NameField property maps the NavBarItem.Name properties of NavBarItem objects to the specified data field’s values.

If the NameField property of a data bound NavBarItemDataFields control is not defined, the control can automatically obtain item unique identifiers from a data field whose name is “Name” (which is equal to the NavBarItem.Name property’s name). You can also handle the ASPxNavBar.ItemDataBound event to manipulate a tab’s settings as required.
