Property Value

Type Description

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


The NameField property is in effect if the TabControl is bound to a data source (via the TabControlExtension.Bind, TabControlExtension.BindToSiteMap or TabControlExtension.BindToXML methods).

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 tabs. The NameField property maps the TabBase.Name properties of TabBase objects to the specified data field's values.

If the NameField property of a data bound TabControl is not defined, the TabControl can automatically obtain active tab names from a data field which is named as "Name". You can also handle the TabControlSettings.TabDataBound event to manipulate a tab's settings as required.
