DataGrid.ItemCreated Event

Occurs on the server when an item in the DataGrid control is created.

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

public event DataGridItemEventHandler ItemCreated
<asp:DataGrid OnItemCreated="DataGridItemEventHandler" />

The ItemCreated event is raised when an item in the DataGrid control is created, both during round-trips and at the time data is bound to the control.

The ItemCreated event is commonly used to control the content and appearance of a row in the DataGrid control.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the ItemCreated event to display the order that items are created in the DataGrid control.
