ObjectDataSource.Inserting Event

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

Occurs before an Insert operation.

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

public:
event ObjectDataSourceMethodEventHandler^ Inserting {
	void add (ObjectDataSourceMethodEventHandler^ value);
	void remove (ObjectDataSourceMethodEventHandler^ value);
}
/** @event */
public void add_Inserting (ObjectDataSourceMethodEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_Inserting (ObjectDataSourceMethodEventHandler value)

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

Handle the Inserting event to perform additional initialization that is specific to your application, to validate the values of parameters, or to change the parameter values before the ObjectDataSource control performs the insert operation. The parameters are available as an IDictionary collection that is accessed by the InputParameters property, which is exposed by the ObjectDataSourceMethodEventArgs object.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

This section contains two code examples. The first code example demonstrates how to use an ObjectDataSource object with a business object and a DetailsView control to insert data. The second code example provides an example of the middle-tier business object that is used in the first code example.

The following code example demonstrates how to use an ObjectDataSource control with a business object and a DetailsView control to insert data. Initially, the DetailsView displays a new NorthwindEmployee record, along with an automatically generated Insert button. After you enter data into the fields of the DetailsView control, click the Insert button. The InsertMethod property identifies which method performs the insert operation.

In this example, the UpdateEmployeeInfo method is used to perform an insert; however, it requires a NorthwindEmployee parameter to insert the data. For this reason, the collection of strings that the DetailsView control passes automatically is not sufficient. The NorthwindEmployeeInserting delegate is an ObjectDataSourceMethodEventHandler object that handles the Inserting event and enables you to manipulate the input parameters before the Insert operation proceeds. Because the UpdateEmployeeInfo method requires a NorthwindEmployee object as a parameter, one is created using the collection of strings and is added to the InputParameters collection using a parameter name (ne) that the method expects. You might perform steps like these when using an existing middle-tier object as a data source with types and methods that are not designed specifically for use with the ObjectDataSource control.

When the Insert operation is performed, the method that is identified by the InsertMethod property is called. If the Insert method of the object has a method signature that includes parameters, the InsertParameters collection must contain a parameter with names that match the method signature parameters for the Insert method to complete successfully.

    IDictionary paramsFromPage = e.get_InputParameters();

The following code example provides an example of a middle-tier business object that the preceding code example uses. The code example consists of two basic classes:

  • The EmployeeLogic class, which is a stateless class that encapsulates business logic.

  • The NorthwindEmployee class, which is a model class that contains only the basic functionality that is required to load and persist data from the data tier.

An additional NorthwindDataException class is provided as a convenience. For a complete working example, you must compile and use these classes. The UpdateEmployeeInfo method is not completely implemented, so you will not insert data into the Northwind Traders database when you experiment with this example.
