Data binding is all about declarative code, right? So I specify what I want with attributes, and the framework takes care of the rest. Unless I'm mistaken and data binding relates to S&M, right?
So, why does the DropDownList control only provide binding fields for its data source, i.e. its list source, and not for its actual data field. i.e. how the heck to I bind the selected value my name DropDownList to the Name field in my Person record? Is this a gross oversight on Microsoft's part, or on mine?
What is the point of two way data binding if I still have to manually set and read the selected value?
