DATASRC Attribute | dataSrc Property

Sets or retrieves the source of the data for data binding.

Syntax

HTML Scripting
< ELEMENT DATASRC = sID ... >
object . dataSrc [ = sID ]

Possible Values

sID String that specifies or receives the identifier of the data source.

The property is read/write. The property has no default value.

Expressions can be used in place of the preceding value(s), as of Microsoft® Internet Explorer 5. For more information, see About Dynamic Properties .

Remarks

Tabular and single-valued data consumers use the dataSrc property to specify a binding. The property takes a string that corresponds to the unique identifier of a data source object (DSO) on the page. The string must be prefixed by a number sign (#).

When the dataSrc property is applied to a tabular data consumer, the entire data set is repeated by the consuming elements.

When the dataSrc property is applied to a table , any contained single-valued consumer objects that specify a dataFld property are repeated for each record in the supplied data set. To complete the binding, the binding agent interrogates the enclosing table for its data source. A tabular data consumer contained within another tabular data consumer ( table ) must specify an explicit dataSrc .

Example

In this example, a text box is bound to the customer_name field of a data source object with an ID of "customer". Because the text box is located within a data-bound table , the text box is repeated to display each of the records provided by the data source.

<TABLE DATASRC ="#customer"> <TR><TD><INPUT TYPE=TEXTBOX DATAFLD="customer_name"><TD><TR> </TABLE>
