Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
Property Valuetrue if the operation is supported; otherwise, false. The base class implementation returns false.
The CanDelete property reflects not only a capability of the data source control, but also whether it is currently appropriate to perform an operation. For example, even though a data source view supports the ExecuteDelete operation in general, if a required property or some other data is not set, the CanDelete property returns false, as a delete operation would fail.
The following code example demonstrates how to override the CanDelete property and the ExecuteDelete method in a class that extends the DataSourceView class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataSourceView class.
