AutoUpdate property

(Windows only; GUI for .NET only)
Indicates whether the BindingSource object automatically updates records in the ABL data source object when some user action in the bound .NET control generates an update operation (such as adding, removing, or editing fields).
Caution: This property is intended only for rapid prototyping purposes. The BindingSource object cannot perform all data-handling tasks automatically (for example, validating data, updating related data, and creating or deleting records in a join query). Also, if any error occurs while updating the ABL data source object, the BindingSource object cannot always notify the .NET control and the control might not behave as expected. The application must take this into account when automatically applying updates in the ABL data source object. For more information, see the data-binding chapter in OpenEdge Development: GUI for .NET Programming.
Data type: LOGICAL
Access: PUBLIC Readable/Writeable
Applies to: Progress.Data.BindingSource class
When TRUE, the BindingSource object automatically applies updates made to any records in the ABL data source object. The default value is FALSE.
