Property Value

Type Description

An ExpressionBindingCollection object.


You can create a binding expression to specify a control or parameter property. Create a ExpressionBinding object and set its properties:

See Data Binding Modes for more information.

The following code example illustrates how to specify an expression to a control’s property:

// Create a label control.
XRLabel label = new XRLabel();
// Specify an expression that sets the label's Text to the current date. The expression is rendered within the BeforePrint event.
XRLabel.ExpressionBindings.Add (new ExpressionBinding("Text", "TODAY()"));
// Specify an expression that is rendered within the PrintOnPage event.
XRLabel.ExpressionBindings.Add (new ExpressionBinding("PrintOnPage","Font.Bold","true"));

The following code snippet demonstrates how to specify a custom expression for a label’s XRControl.Text property. This code assumes that a report is bound to a data source containing the UnitPrice and UnitsInStock fields.

using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;

public XtraReport1() {
    // ...
    ExpressionBinding expressionBinding = new ExpressionBinding("BeforePrint", "Text", "[UnitPrice]*[UnitsInStock]");
