Property (As String )

StringValue = aCheckbox.DataSource

Supported for all project types and targets.

The DataControl that references a table in a database whose fields are displayed.


Use the DataField property to link a field to be displayed in a CheckBox. In the IDE, a popup menu of field names will appear in the Properties pane. When setting in code, it takes a String. Assign it to the Name property of a DataControl. Note: Database fields can also be displayed using TextFields and TextAreas, ListBoxes, and Label controls.


The following example links the Checkbox to a database and a field in the database.

Me.DataSource = "database"
Me.DataField = "color"
