This demo illustrates how to bind the DevExpress ASP.NET Data View (ASPxDataView) to a data source. It supports standard data binding with any object that implements the IEnumerable or IDataSource interface (e.g., SqlDataSource, XmlDataSource).
In this example, the ASPxDataView control is bound to the XmlDataSource component, which obtains data from an XML file with the following structure.
<Contact Name="..." Address="..." Phone ="..." PhotoUrl ="..." />
The appearance of the ASPxDataView control's data items is defined via an ItemTemplate type template. Controls that make up the template are bound to data using data binding expressions. (See the ASPX code.)
