GridView.RowCancelingEdit Event

Note: This event is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Occurs when the Cancel button of a row in edit mode is clicked, but before the row exits edit mode.

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

public event GridViewCancelEditEventHandler RowCancelingEdit
/** @event */
public void add_RowCancelingEdit (GridViewCancelEditEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_RowCancelingEdit (GridViewCancelEditEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The RowCancelingEdit event is raised when the Cancel button of a row in edit mode is clicked, but before the row exits edit mode. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as stopping the cancel operation if it would put the row in an undesired state, whenever this event occurs.

A GridViewCancelEditEventArgs object is passed to the event-handling method, which allows you to determine the index of the current row and to indicate that the cancel operation should be stopped. To stop the cancel operation, set the Cancel property of the GridViewCancelEditEventArgs object to true.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the RowCancelingEdit event to display a cancellation message when the user cancels the update operation of a GridView control.


<%@ Page language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">

  void CustomersGridView_RowCancelingEdit(Object sender, GridViewCancelEditEventArgs e)
  {
    
    // Retrieve the row that raised the event from the Rows
    // collection of the GridView control.
    GridViewRow row = CustomersGridView.Rows[e.RowIndex];
    
    // The update operation was canceled. Display the 
    // primary key of the row. In this example, the primary
    // key is displayed in the second column of the GridView
    // control. To access the text of the column, use the Cells
    // collection of the row.
    Message.Text = "Update for item " + row.Cells[1].Text + " Canceled."; 
    
  }

  void CustomersGridView_RowEditing(Object sender, GridViewEditEventArgs e)
  {

    // The GridView control is entering edit mode. Clear the message label.
    Message.Text = "";

  }
  
  void CustomersGridView_RowUpdated(Object sender, GridViewUpdatedEventArgs e)
  {

    // The update operation was successful. Clear the message label.
    Message.Text = "";

  }
    
</script>
