As with every other group of server controls, it pays for us to first take a look at the parent of all these controls. This group’s Mama and Dada is the ListControl class, which is located in the System.Web.UI.WebControls namespace. Table 9.1 displays the ListControl’s properties. It also has one method that the other list controls will inherit.
|AutoPostBack||Gets or sets a value indicating whether a postback to the server automatically occurs when the user changes the list selection.|
|DataMember||Gets or sets the specific table in the datasource to bind to the control.|
|DataSource||Gets or sets the data source that is used to populate the items of the list control.|
