GridView.RowUpdating Event

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

Occurs when a row's Update button is clicked, but before the GridView control updates the row.

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

public event GridViewUpdateEventHandler RowUpdating
/** @event */
public void add_RowUpdating (GridViewUpdateEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_RowUpdating (GridViewUpdateEventHandler value)

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

The RowUpdating event is raised when a row's Update button is clicked, but before the GridView control updates the row. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the update operation, whenever this event occurs.

A GridViewUpdateEventArgs object is passed to the event-handling method, which allows you to determine the index of the current row and to indicate that the update operation should be canceled. To cancel the update operation, set the Cancel property of the GridViewUpdateEventArgs object to true. You can also manipulate the Keys, OldValues, and NewValues collections, if necessary, before the values are passed to the data source. A common way to use these collections is to HTML-encode the values supplied by the user before they are stored in the data source. This helps to prevent script injection attacks.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the RowUpdating event to HTML-encode all values supplied by the user before updating the data source.


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

<script runat="server">

  void CustomersGridView_RowUpdating(Object sender, GridViewUpdateEventArgs e)
  {
     
    // Iterate through the NewValues collection and HTML encode all 
    // user-provided values before updating the data source.
    foreach (DictionaryEntry entry in e.NewValues)
    {
    
      e.NewValues[entry.Key] = Server.HtmlEncode(entry.Value.ToString());
    
    }
        
  }
       
</script>
