DataListItemEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the ItemCreated and ItemDataBound events of the DataList control.

[Visual Basic]
<Serializable>
Public Delegate Sub DataListItemEventHandler( _
   ByVal sender As Object, _
   ByVal e As DataListItemEventArgs _
)
[C#]
[Serializable]
public delegate void DataListItemEventHandler(
   object sender,
   DataListItemEventArgs e
);
[C++]
[Serializable]
public __gc __delegate void DataListItemEventHandler(
   Object* sender,
   DataListItemEventArgs* e
);

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the delegates in the .NET Framework, but you cannot define your own.

Parameters [Visual Basic, C#, C++]

The declaration of your event handler must have the same parameters as the DataListItemEventHandler delegate declaration.

sender
The source of the event.
e
A DataListItemEventArgs that contains the event data.

Remarks

The ItemCreated event is raised when an item in the DataList control is created.

The ItemDataBound event is raised when an item in the DataList control is data bound to a source.

When you create a DataListItemEventHandler 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.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the ItemCreated event to display the order in which items in the DataList are created.
