GridViewDeleteEventHandler Delegate

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

Represents the method that handles the RowDeleting event of a GridView control.

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

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

Parameters

sender

The source of the event.

e

A GridViewDeleteEventArgs object that contains the event data.

The GridView control raises the RowDeleting event when a Delete button (a button with its CommandName property set to "Delete") is clicked, but before the GridView control deletes the record. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the delete operation, whenever this event occurs.

When you create a GridViewDeleteEventHandler 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 example demonstrates how to programmatically add a GridViewDeleteEventHandler delegate to the RowDeleting event of a GridView control.


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

<script runat="server">

  void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
        
    // Create a new GridView control.
    GridView customersGridView = new GridView();
         
    // Set the GridView control's properties.          
    customersGridView.ID = "CustomersGridView";
    customersGridView.DataSourceID = "CustomersSqlDataSource"; 
    customersGridView.AutoGenerateColumns = true;
    customersGridView.AutoGenerateDeleteButton = true;
    customersGridView.DataKeyNames = new String[] {"CustomerID"};
       
    // Programmatically register the event-handling methods.
    customersGridView.RowDeleting += new GridViewDeleteEventHandler(this.CustomersGridView_RowDeleting);
        
    // Add the GridView object to the Controls collection
    // of the PlaceHolder control.
    GridViewPlaceHolder.Controls.Add(customersGridView);
        
  }
    
  void CustomersGridView_RowDeleting(Object sender, GridViewDeleteEventArgs e)
  {

    // User the sender parameter to retrieve the GridView control
    // that raised the event.
    GridView customersGridView = (GridView)sender;
    
    // Cancel the delete operation if the user attempts to remove
    // the last record from the GridView control.
    if (customersGridView.Rows.Count <= 1)
    {
        
      e.Cancel = true;
      Message.Text = "You must keep at least one record.";
            
    }
    
  }  

</script>

The following example demonstrates how to declaratively add a GridViewDeleteEventHandler delegate to the RowDeleting event of a GridView control.


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

<script runat="server">

  void CustomersGridView_RowDeleting(Object sender, GridViewDeleteEventArgs e)
  {
    
    // Cancel the delete operation if the user attempts to remove
    // the last record from the GridView control.
    if (CustomersGridView.Rows.Count <= 1)
    {
        
      e.Cancel = true;
      Message.Text = "You must keep at least one record.";
            
    }
    
  }  

</script>

  <body>
    <form runat="server">

      <br/>
            
      <!-- The GridView control automatically sets the columns     -->
