  NameDescription
Public methodDataGridCommandEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the DataGridCommandEventArgs class.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyCommandArgumentGets the argument for the command. (Inherited from CommandEventArgs.)
Public propertyCommandNameGets the name of the command. (Inherited from CommandEventArgs.)
Public propertyCommandSourceGets the source of the command.
Public propertyItemGets the item containing the command source in the DataGrid control.

  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The CancelCommand event is raised when the Cancel button for an item in the DataGrid control is clicked.

The DeleteCommand event is raised when the Delete button for an item in the DataGrid control is clicked.

The EditCommand event is raised when the Edit button for an item in the DataGrid control is clicked.

The ItemCommand event is raised when any button for an item in the DataGrid control is clicked. This allows you to programmatically test for when a specific command button is clicked and take appropriate action. This event is commonly used to handle custom command buttons for the DataGrid control.

The UpdateCommand event is raised when the Update button for an item in the DataGrid control is clicked.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of DataGridCommandEventArgs, see the DataGridCommandEventArgs constructor.

For more information about handling events, see Events and Delegates.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code event handlers for the EditCommand, CancelCommand, and UpdateCommand events to edit items in the DataGrid control.
