    Fields Property
    In This Topic
    Returns the current data binding collection.  This collection contains the available Field objects to which the report controls and sections can be bound.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public ReadOnly Property Fields As FieldCollection
    public FieldCollection Fields {get;}
    Remarks

    ActiveReports initializes the collection with all the fields in the DataSource if any.  You can add custom unbound fields to the collection in the DataInitialize event.  This allows you to create custom calculated fields and bind the report sections and controls to fields not available through the data source but provided at run time in the FetchData event.   This allows the report to bind to collections, arrays or any other custom data structure that your application handles.

    Note:  Do not reference the Fields collection outside the DataInitialize and FetchData events.

    Example
    private void rptUnbound_DataInitialize(object sender, System.EventArgs eArgs)
    {
        Fields.Add("CategoryName");
        Fields.Add("ProductName");    
        Fields.Add("UnitsInStock");        
        Fields.Add("Description");
    }
    Private Sub rptUnbound_DataInitialize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As _
        System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.DataInitialize
        Fields.Add("CategoryName")        
        Fields.Add("ProductName")        
        Fields.Add("UnitsInStock")        
        Fields.Add("Description")
    End Sub
