Property Value

Type Description

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


The TextField property is in effect if a menu is bound to a data source.

Use the TextField property to specify the bound data source's data field (or an xml element's attribute) which stores menu item texts. The TextField property maps the Text properties of menu item objects to the specified data field's values. You can format the obtained texts by using the MenuSettingsBase.TextFormatString property.

If the TextField property of a data bound menu is not defined, the menu can automatically obtain menu item texts from a data field whose name is "Text". You can also use the MenuSettingsBase.ItemDataBound property to manipulate a menu item's settings as required.
