DataGridItem Class

Represents an item (row) in a DataGrid control.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public class DataGridItem : TableRow, IDataItemContainer, INamingContainer
public class DataGridItem extends TableRow implements IDataItemContainer, INamingContainer
public class DataGridItem extends TableRow implements IDataItemContainer, INamingContainer

A DataGridItem object represents an item (row) in a DataGrid control, such as a heading section, a footer section, or a data row.

The data items of a DataGrid control are stored in a DataGridItemCollection collection that can be accessed by using the Items property of the DataGrid control.

You can use a DataGridItem object to programmatically access the properties of an item in a DataGrid control.

The following code example demonstrates how to use a DataGridItem object to display the contents of each data item in the DataGrid control.

NoteNote

The following code example uses the single-file code model and might not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code example must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see Events and Delegates.
