    Question newbie WinForms DataBinding question

    Folks,

    Im doing my first project with WinForms, and Im trying to get the DataBinding working. Theres no database in my project, but Id like to bind some of the TextBoxes to runtime object properties. On the web I found the following line of code which does it:

    Code:
    textBox2.DataBindings.Add(new Binding("Text", this.myPerson, "LastName"));
    This is a viable approach for me. However, my question is can data binding to runtime object properties be done during design time (without writing code) ? If so, how?

    Any suggestions references and insight is appreciated!

    Cheers,
    - Nick

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this. The example you shown should answer the question. You probably need to clarify what you mean by 'runtime object properties' and clarify what you mean by 'without writing code'. You can use the Visual Studio designer tools to set up the data binding but you would need to know what you are binding to at design time.

    That's what I'm looking for. I know the name of the object (of my own class) and the property. How can I set-up the binding using Visual Studio designer tools?

    P.S. I know how I would set up this binding if I were using WPF, but I'm forced to use WinForms.
