Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The event is raised when a DetailsView control attempts to change between edit, insert, and read-only mode, but before the CurrentMode property is updated. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the mode change, whenever this event occurs.
A DetailsViewModeEventArgs object is passed to the event handler, which allows you to determine the new mode, to determine whether the mode change was a result of the user canceling an edit operation, or to cancel the mode change. To determine the new mode, use the NewMode property. To determine whether the mode change was a result of the user canceling an edit operation, use the CancelingEdit property. You can cancel the mode change by setting the Cancel property to true.
