    DataLink Class
    In This Topic
    Allows establishing flexible cross-form data binding.

    For information on features of DataLink please refer to topic DataLink Component Architecture. See also description of InterForm Technology.

    Note: This class is not available in .NET Standard compatible assemblies. It is available only in the assembly for full .NET Framework.

    This class is available only in Professional and Developer Editions. It is not available in Standard and Mobile Editions.

    It is recommended to work with this component in design time. For example, if you create the OracleDataTable object (“myDataTable1”) on Form1, you can access Form1's myDataTable1 via the DataSource property of Form2's DataLink object (“dataLink1”). In this case, you will find the following entry in Form2.InitializeComponent():
    private void InitializeComponent() {
            this.dataLink1.DataSource = ((object)(Devart.Common.GlobalComponentsCache.GetObjectByName("Form1.myDataTable1")));
    Private Sub InitializeComponent()
            Me.DataLink1.DataSource = CType(Devart.Common.GlobalComponentsCache.GetObjectByName("Form1.myDataTable1"), Object)
    End Sub
