ObjectDataSource.Selected Event

Occurs when a Select operation has completed.

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

'Declaration
Public Event Selected As ObjectDataSourceStatusEventHandler
<asp:ObjectDataSource OnSelected="ObjectDataSourceStatusEventHandler" />

Handle the Selected event to examine the values of a return value or output parameters, or to determine whether an exception was thrown after a Select operation has completed. The return value, output parameters, and exception handling properties are available from the ObjectDataSourceStatusEventArgs object that is associated with the event.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following three examples show a Web page, a code-behind page class, and a data-access class that enable a user to retrieve and update records in the Employees table in the Northwind database.

The first example shows a Web page that contains two ObjectDataSource controls, a DropDownList control, and a DetailsView control. The first ObjectDataSource control and the DropDownList control are used to retrieve and display employee names from the database. The second ObjectDataSource control and the DetailsView control are used to retrieve, display, and modify the data from the employee record that is selected by the user.

<form id="form1" runat="server">

    <asp:objectdatasource
      ID="ObjectDataSource1"
      runat="server"
      SelectMethod="GetFullNamesAndIDs"
      TypeName="Samples.AspNet.CS.EmployeeLogic" />

    <p>
    <asp:dropdownlist
      ID="DropDownList1"
      runat="server" 
      DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource1"
      DataTextField="FullName"
      DataValueField="EmployeeID" 
      AutoPostBack="True" 
      AppendDataBoundItems="true">
        <asp:ListItem Text="Select One" Value=""></asp:ListItem>
    </asp:dropdownlist>
    </p>

    <asp:objectdatasource
      ID="ObjectDataSource2"
      runat="server"
      SelectMethod="GetEmployee"
      UpdateMethod="UpdateEmployeeAddress"
      OnUpdating="EmployeeUpdating"
      OnSelected="EmployeeSelected"
      TypeName="Samples.AspNet.CS.EmployeeLogic" >
      <SelectParameters>
        <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="DropDownList1" DefaultValue="-1" Name="empID" />
      </SelectParameters>
    </asp:objectdatasource>

    <asp:DetailsView
        ID="DetailsView1"
        runat="server"
        DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource2" 
        AutoGenerateRows="false"
        AutoGenerateEditButton="true">  
        <Fields>
            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Address" DataField="Address" />
            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="City" DataField="City" />
            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Postal Code" DataField="PostalCode" />
        </Fields>  
    </asp:DetailsView>

</form>

The second example shows handlers for the Selected and Updating events. The Selected event handler serializes the object that contains data that was retrieved from the Employee table. The serialized object is stored in view state. The Updating event handler deserializes the object in view state that contains the original data for the data record that is being updated. The object that contains the original data is passed as a parameter to the Update method. The original data must be passed to the database so that it can be used to check whether the data has been modified by another process.

Public Sub EmployeeUpdating(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As ObjectDataSourceMethodEventArgs)
    Dim dcs As New DataContractSerializer(GetType(Employee))
    Dim xmlData As String 
    Dim reader As XmlReader
    Dim originalEmployee As Employee

    xmlData = ViewState("OriginalEmployee").ToString()
    reader = XmlReader.Create(New StringReader(xmlData))
    originalEmployee = CType(dcs.ReadObject(reader), Employee)
    reader.Close()

    e.InputParameters.Add("originalEmployee", originalEmployee)
End Sub 

Public Sub EmployeeSelected(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As ObjectDataSourceStatusEventArgs)
    If e.ReturnValue IsNot Nothing Then 
        Dim dcs As New DataContractSerializer(GetType(Employee))
        Dim sb As New StringBuilder()
        Dim writer As XmlWriter
        writer = XmlWriter.Create(sb)
        dcs.WriteObject(writer, e.ReturnValue)
        writer.Close()

        ViewState("OriginalEmployee") = sb.ToString()
    End If 
End Sub

The third example shows the data access class that interacts with the Northwind database. The class uses LINQ to query and update the Employees table. The example requires a LINQ to SQL class that represents the Northwind database and Employees table. For more information, see How to: Create LINQ to SQL Classes in a Web Project.

Public Class EmployeeLogic
    Public Shared Function GetFullNamesAndIDs() As Array
        Dim ndc As New NorthwindDataContext()

        Dim employeeQuery = _
            From e In ndc.Employees _
            Order By e.LastName _
            Select FullName = e.FirstName + " " + e.LastName, EmployeeID = e.EmployeeID

        Return employeeQuery.ToArray()
    End Function 

    Public Shared Function GetEmployee(ByVal empID As Integer) As Employee

        If (empID < 0) Then 
            Return Nothing 
        Else 
            Dim ndc As New NorthwindDataContext()
            Dim employeeQuery = _
                From e In ndc.Employees _
                Where e.EmployeeID = empID _
                Select e

            Return employeeQuery.Single()
        End If 
    End Function 

    Public Shared Sub UpdateEmployeeAddress(ByVal originalEmployee As Employee, ByVal address As String, ByVal city As String, ByVal postalcode As String)

        Dim ndc As New NorthwindDataContext()
        ndc.Employees.Attach(originalEmployee, False)
        originalEmployee.Address = address
        originalEmployee.City = city
        originalEmployee.PostalCode = postalcode
        ndc.SubmitChanges()
    End Sub 
End Class
