ImageButton.CommandArgument Property

Gets or sets an optional argument that provides additional information about the CommandName property.

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

[ThemeableAttribute(false)]
[BindableAttribute(true)]
public string CommandArgument { get; set; }
<asp:ImageButton CommandArgument="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
An optional argument that supplements the CommandName property.

Implements

IButtonControl.CommandArgument

Sometimes, multiple ImageButton controls are related and share the same value for the CommandName property, such as Sort. Use this property to supplement the CommandName property with additional information about the command to perform, such as Ascending. The values of the CommandName and CommandArgument properties are typically used in the OnCommand event handler to determine the action to perform when the ImageButton control is clicked.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins.

The following example demonstrates how to use the CommandArgument property to associate a command argument with an ImageButton control.
