How well does WinForm Data Binding work with VS03?

Hi All,

I'm planning on using Data Binding in my next project, using VS 2003. I didn't in my pervious project that was begun in VS202 because of the troubles others were having with it at the time.

I've done a few mock-ups and everything seemed to work as expected, but I thought I'd ask to see if anyone was having trouble with it in VS 2003.

Thanks in advance for he tips and comments.

The architecture of WinForms data-binding has not changed from .NET 1.0 to .NET 1.1. Im sure any mockups you might have done would have worked in .NET 1.0 too.

"...the troubles others were having with it at the time" -- are you sure the others had "read the fine manual" before they came to the conclusion that it was somehow broken. It would be interesting to know what they were doing (I'm not saying that data-binding is flawless -- I'm just interested in knowing how exactly it's supposed not to work properly).
