I read that labelfunction attribute of an List Based Component will be used for Manipulating data .
Please tell me why label function is associated with List Based Components only like (ListBox , Combo Box , DataGrid) .
I mean to ask Why it is not applicable to a TextInput , as we may require to manipulate the data and then produce it inside a TextInput??
Thanks for reading .
I think its because list based data is more complex, and may require examining the data and getting the data to display. Also, list based controls use item renderers.
You can certainly implement a change event handler for controls that do not implement the labelFunction property.
If this post answers your question or helps, please mark it as such.
