DataList.ItemCommand Event

Occurs when any button is clicked in the DataList control.

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

'Declaration
Public Event ItemCommand As DataListCommandEventHandler
'Usage
Dim instance As DataList
Dim handler As DataListCommandEventHandler

AddHandler instance.ItemCommand, handler

/** @event */
public void add_ItemCommand (DataListCommandEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_ItemCommand (DataListCommandEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The ItemCommand event is raised when any button is clicked in the DataList control and is commonly used when you have a button control with a custom CommandName value.

For more information about handling events, seeHow to: Consume Events in a Web Forms Application.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the ItemCommand event to select an item from the DataList control.

NoteNote

The following code sample uses the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see ASP.NET Web Page Code Model.
