Setting the Simple Data Field dialog box options

Setting the Simple Data Field dialog box options

The Simple Data Field column (referred to as a bound column in ASP.NET) lets you specify which data source field to display, and the data format the field will use with a .NET formatting expression.

To set the Simple Data Field dialog box options:

  1. The Title text box lets you insert a title into the grid’s header or footer rows. (Displaying a header or footer row for a DataGrid is controlled by the DataGrid Property inspector.)
  2. Select a DataSet column with which to populate the DataGrid column from the Data Field pop-up menu.
  3. Click the Read Only checkbox to specify that the DataGrid does not allow add, update, or delete privileges.
  4. Select a data type from the Submit As pop-up menu.
  5. Click OK.
