Binding Object VB

Description

The binding object represents the binding of one property of one form control (or another data consumer) to a data source. The data consumer represented by the Binding object's Object property can be a form control—or the form itself, or a VB class with its DataBindingBehavior set to either vbSimpleBound or vbComplex-Bound. The data consumer's property that is updated by the data source is represented by the string assigned to the PropertyName property. The data source can be any valid data source, such as an ADO recordset or a VB class with its DataSouceBehavior property set to vbDataSource

For an overview of data binding objects, including the library reference needed to access the object model, see the Data Binding Objects entry. See the BindingCol-lection object for more detail about data binding and an example demonstrating the use of the Binding object.
