DetailsViewCommandEventHandler Delegate

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

Represents the method that handles the ItemCommand event of a DetailsView control.

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

public delegate void DetailsViewCommandEventHandler (
	Object sender,
	DetailsViewCommandEventArgs e
)
/** @delegate */
public delegate void DetailsViewCommandEventHandler (
	Object sender, 
	DetailsViewCommandEventArgs e
)
JScript supports the use of delegates, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

sender

The source of the event.

e

A DetailsViewCommandEventArgs that contains the event data.

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).

When you create a DetailsViewCommandEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.

The following code example demonstrates how to programmatically add a DetailsViewCommandEventHandler delegate to the ItemCommand event of a DetailsView control. This example uses the single-file coding model.


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

<script runat="server">
  
  void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {

    // Create a new DetailsView object.
    DetailsView customerDetailsView = new DetailsView();

    // Set the DetailsView object's properties.
    customerDetailsView.ID = "CustomerDetailsView";
    customerDetailsView.DataSourceID = "DetailsViewSource";
    customerDetailsView.AutoGenerateRows = true;
    customerDetailsView.AllowPaging = true;
    customerDetailsView.DataKeyNames = new String[1] { "CustomerID" };

    // Add a button field to the DetailsView control.
    ButtonField field = new ButtonField();
    field.ButtonType = ButtonType.Link;
    field.CausesValidation = false;
    field.Text = "Add to List";
    field.CommandName="Add";

    customerDetailsView.Fields.Add(field);

    // Programmatically register the event-handling method
    // for the ItemDeleting event of a DetailsView control.
    customerDetailsView.ItemCommand 
      += new DetailsViewCommandEventHandler( 
      this.CustomerDetailsView_ItemCommand);

    // Add the DetailsView object to the Controls collection
    // of the PlaceHolder control.
    DetailsViewPlaceHolder.Controls.Add(customerDetailsView);

  }
  
  void CustomerDetailsView_ItemCommand(Object sender, 
    DetailsViewCommandEventArgs e)
  {

    // Use the CommandName property to determine which button
    // was clicked. 
    if (e.CommandName == "Add")
    {
      // Get the DetailsView control that raised the event.
      DetailsView customerDetailsView = (DetailsView)e.CommandSource;

      // Add the current 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 = customerDetailsView.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, if the 
      // item doesn't already exist.
      if (!CustomerListBox.Items.Contains(item))
      {
        CustomerListBox.Items.Add(item);
      }

    }

  }

The following code example demonstrates how to declaratively add a DetailsViewCommandEventHandler delegate to the ItemCommand event of a DetailsView control.


<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">

    void CustomerDetailView_ItemCommand(Object sender, DetailsViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {

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

            // Add the current store to the contact list. 

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

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

            // Create a ListItem object with the store's name.
            ListItem item = new ListItem(name);

            // Add the ListItem object to the ListBox, if the 
            // item doesn't already exist.
            if (!ContactListBox.Items.Contains(item))
            {
                ContactListBox.Items.Add(item);
            }

        }

    }
