Public Property NavigateUrlField As String

Property Value

Type Description

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


The NavigateUrlField 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 NavigateUrlField property to specify the bound data source's data field (or an xml element's attribute) which stores tabs' navigate URLs. The NavigateUrlField property maps the Tab.NavigateUrl properties of Tab objects to the specified data field's values.

You can format the obtained navigate locations by using the TabControlSettings.NavigateUrlFormatString property.

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