DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs Class

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

Provides data for the ItemInserted event.

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

Public Class DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs
	Inherits EventArgs
Dim instance As DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs

public class DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs extends EventArgs
public class DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs extends EventArgs

The DetailsView control raises the ItemInserted event when an Insert button (a button with its CommandName property set to "Insert") within the control is clicked, but after the DetailsView control inserts the record. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine, such as checking the results of an insert operation, whenever this event occurs.

A DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs object is passed to the event handler, which allows you to determine the number of records affected and any exceptions that might have occurred. To determine the number of records affected by the insert operation, use the AffectedRows property. Use the Exception property to determine whether any exceptions occurred. You can also indicate whether the exception was handled in the event handler by setting the ExceptionHandled property. If you need to access the values of the inserted record, use the Values property.

By default, the DetailsView control returns to the mode specified by the DefaultMode property after an insert operation. To keep the DetailsView control in insert mode, set the KeepInInsertMode property to true.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the DetailsViewDeletedEventArgs class, see the DetailsViewDeletedEventArgs constructor.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs object passed to the event handler for the ItemInserted event to determine whether an exception occurred during an insert operation.

<script runat="server">

  Sub CustomerDetailsView_ItemInserted(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs) _
    Handles CustomerDetailsView.ItemInserted

    ' Use the Exception property to determine whether an exception
    ' occurred during the insert operation.
    If e.Exception Is Nothing And e.AffectedRows = 1 Then
      ' Use the Values property to get the value entered by 
      ' the user for the CompanyName field.
      Dim name As String = e.Values("CompanyName").ToString()

      ' Display a confirmation message.
      MessageLabel.Text = name & " added successfully. "
      ' Insert the code to handle the exception.
      MessageLabel.Text = e.Exception.Message
      ' Use the ExceptionHandled property to indicate that the 
      ' exception is already handled.
      e.ExceptionHandled = True
      ' When an exception occurs, keep the DetailsView
      ' control in insert mode.
      e.KeepInInsertMode = True
    End If
  End Sub
