) As Type

Parameters

A String value that specifies the name of the data source field.

Remarks

For example, the DashboardSqlDataSource class instance (dataSource) contains the SalesPerson query from the corresponding view contained in the standard Northwind database. In this case, the GetFieldSourceType method returns DateTime for the OrderDate field from the SalesPerson view.

((IDashboardDataSource)dataSource).GetFieldSourceType("OrderDate", "SalesPerson");

Note that dataSource is the DashboardSqlDataSource class instance.
