GridViewUpdatedEventArgs.Exception Property

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

Gets the exception (if any) that was raised during the update operation.

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

public Exception Exception { get; }
/** @property */
public Exception get_Exception ()

public function get Exception () : Exception

Property Value

An Exception object that represents the exception that was raised during the update operation.

Use the Exception property to determine the exception (if any) that was raised during the update operation. If no exceptions were raised, this property returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

NoteNote

If an exception was raised and you decide to handle the exception in the event handler, be sure to set the ExceptionHandled property to true; otherwise, the exception is thrown again by the GridView control.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Exception property to determine whether an exception occurred during an update operation.


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

<script runat="server">

  void CustomersGridView_RowUpdated(Object sender, GridViewUpdatedEventArgs e)
  {
    // Use the Exception property to determine whether an exception
    // occurred during the update operation.
    if (e.Exception == null)
    {
      // Sometimes an error might occur that does not raise an 
      // exception, but prevents the update operation from 
      // completing. Use the AffectedRows property to determine 
      // whether the record was actually updated. 
      if (e.AffectedRows == 1)
      {
        // Use the Keys property to get the value of the key field.
        String keyFieldValue = e.Keys["CustomerID"].ToString();

        // Display a confirmation message.
        Message.Text = "Record " + keyFieldValue +
          " updated successfully. ";

        // Display the new and original values.
        DisplayValues((OrderedDictionary)e.NewValues, (OrderedDictionary)e.OldValues);
      }
      else
      {
        // Display an error message.
        Message.Text = "An error occurred during the update operation.";

        // When an error occurs, keep the GridView
        // control in edit mode.
        e.KeepInEditMode = true;
      }
    }
    else
    {
      // Insert the code to handle the exception.
      Message.Text = e.Exception.Message;

      // Use the ExceptionHandled property to indicate that the 
      // exception is already handled.
      e.ExceptionHandled = true;

      e.KeepInEditMode = true;
    }
  }

  void DisplayValues(OrderedDictionary newValues, OrderedDictionary oldValues)
  {

    Message.Text += "<br/></br>";

    // Iterate through the new and old values. Display the
    // values on the page.
    for (int i = 0; i < oldValues.Count; i++)
    {
      Message.Text += "Old Value=" + oldValues[i].ToString() +
        ", New Value=" + newValues[i].ToString() + "<br/>";
    }

    Message.Text += "</br>";

  }
