DetailsViewCommandEventArgs Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Provides data for the ItemCommand event.

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

public class DetailsViewCommandEventArgs : CommandEventArgs
public class DetailsViewCommandEventArgs extends CommandEventArgs
public class DetailsViewCommandEventArgs extends CommandEventArgs

The DetailsView control raises the ItemCommand event when a button within a ButtonField, CommandField, or TemplateField row field is clicked. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine whenever this event occurs.

NoteNote

The DetailsView control also raises other specialized events when certain buttons are clicked (buttons with the CommandName property set to "Delete", "Insert", "Page", or "Update"). When using one of these buttons, you should consider using one of the specialized events provided by the control (such as ItemDeleted or ItemDeleting).

A DetailsViewCommandEventArgs object is passed to the event handler. If the button that raised the event has a command name or command argument value, you can use the DetailsViewCommandEventArgs object to determine these values. To determine the command name and command argument of the button clicked, use the CommandName and CommandArgument properties, respectively. You can also access the DetailsView control that raised the event by using the CommandSource property.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the DetailsViewCommandEventArgs class, see the DetailsViewCommandEventArgs constructor.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DetailsViewCommandEventArgs object passed to the event handler for the ItemCommand event to determine the command name of the button clicked by the user. This example uses the single-file coding model.


<%@ page language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">
  
  void ItemDetailsView_ItemCommand(Object sender, 
      DetailsViewCommandEventArgs e)
  {

    // Use the CommandName property to determine which button
    // was clicked. 
    if (e.CommandName == "Add")
    {

      // Add the customer to the customer list. 

      // Get the row that contains the company name. In this
      // example, the company name is in the second row (index 1)  
      // of the DetailsView control.
      DetailsViewRow row = ItemDetailsView.Rows[1];

      // Get the company's name from the appropriate cell.
      // In this example, the company name is in the second cell  
      // (index 1) of the row.
      String name = row.Cells[1].Text;

      // Create a ListItem object with the company name.
      ListItem item = new ListItem(name);

      // Add the ListItem object to the ListBox control, if the 
      // item does not already exist.
      if (!CustomerListBox.Items.Contains(item))
      {
        CustomerListBox.Items.Add(item);
      }

    }

  }
