  • Declarative Syntax

The DetailsView control is used to display a single record from a data source in a table, where each field of the record is displayed in a row of the table. It can be used in combination with a GridView control for master-detail scenarios. The DetailsView control supports the following features:

  • Binding to data source controls, such as SqlDataSource.

  • Built-in inserting capabilities.

  • Built-in updating and deleting capabilities.

  • Built-in paging capabilities.

  • Programmatic access to the DetailsView object model to dynamically set properties, handle events, and so on.

  • Customizable appearance through themes and styles.

Each data row in the DetailsView control is created by declaring a field control. Different row field types determine the behavior of the rows in the control. Field controls derive from DataControlField. The following table lists the different row field types that can be used.

Column field type

Description

BoundField

Displays the value of a field in a data source as text.

ButtonField

Displays a command button in the DetailsView control. This allows you to display a row with a custom button control, such as an Add or a Remove button.

CheckBoxField

Displays a check box in the DetailsView control. This row field type is commonly used to display fields with a Boolean value.

CommandField

Displays built-in command buttons to perform edit, insert, or delete operations in the DetailsView control.

HyperLinkField

Displays the value of a field in a data source as a hyperlink. This row field type allows you to bind a second field to the hyperlink's URL.

ImageField

Displays an image in the DetailsView control.

TemplateField

Displays user-defined content for a row in the DetailsView control according to a specified template. This row field type allows you to create a custom row field.

By default, the property is set to true, which automatically generates a bound row field object for each field of a bindable type in the data source. Valid bindable types are String, DateTime, Decimal, Guid, and the set of primitive types. Each field is then displayed in a row as text, in the order in which each field appears in the data source.

Automatically generating the rows provides a quick and easy way to display every field in the record. However, to make use of the DetailsView control's advanced capabilities you must explicitly declare the row fields to include in the DetailsView control. To declare the row fields, first set the property to false. Next, add opening and closing <Fields> tags between the opening and closing tags of the DetailsView control. Finally, list the row fields that you want to include between the opening and closing <Fields> tags. The row fields specified are added to the collection in the order listed. The collection allows you to programmatically manage the row fields in the DetailsView control.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Automatically generated row fields are not added to the collection.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Explicitly declared row fields can be displayed in combination with automatically generated row fields. When both are used, explicitly declared row fields are rendered first, followed by the automatically generated row fields.

The DetailsView control can be bound to a data source control (such as the SqlDataSource control or ObjectDataSource control) or to any data source collection that implements the System.CollectionsIEnumerable interface, such as System.DataDataView, System.CollectionsArrayList, System.Collections.GenericList, or other collection types. Use one of the following methods to bind the DetailsView control to the appropriate data source type:

  • To bind to a data source control, set the property of the DetailsView control to the value of the data source control. The DetailsView control automatically binds to the specified data source control. This is the preferred method to bind to data.

  • To bind to a data source that implements the System.CollectionsIEnumerable interface, programmatically set the property of the DetailsView control to the data source and then call the DataBind method.

For more information on data binding, see Binding to Databases.

This control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Validation Server Control Syntax.

The DetailsView control provides built-in capabilities that allow the user to update, delete, insert, and page through items in the control. When the DetailsView control is bound to a data source control, the DetailsView control can take advantage of the data source control's capabilities and provide automatic updating, deleting, inserting, and paging functionality.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The DetailsView control can provide support for update, delete, insert, and paging operations with other types of data sources; however, you must provide the implementation for these operations in an appropriate event handler. For more information, see ItemDeleting, ItemInserting, and ItemUpdating.

The DetailsView control can automatically add a CommandField row field with an Edit, Delete, or New button by setting the , , or properties to true, respectively. Unlike the Delete button (which deletes the selected record immediately), when the Edit or New button is clicked, the DetailsView control goes into edit or insert mode, respectively. In edit mode, the Edit button is replaced with an Update and a Cancel button. Input controls that are appropriate for the field's data type (such as a TextBox or a CheckBox control) are displayed with a field's value for the user to modify. Clicking the Update button updates the record in the data source, while clicking the Cancel button abandons any changes. Likewise, in insert mode, the New button is replaced with an Insert and a Cancel button, and empty input controls are displayed for the user to enter the values for the new record.

System_CAPS_noteNote

You can also manually define the update, delete, and insert command buttons in a ButtonField, CommandField, or TemplateField row field. The DetailsView control recognizes buttons with the property set to "Edit", "Update", "Delete", "New", "Insert", or "Cancel"; however, you still must provide the functionality yourself. For more information, see ItemDeleting, ItemInserting, and ItemUpdating.

The DetailsView control provides a paging feature, which allows the user to navigate to other records in the data source. When enabled, page navigation controls are displayed in a pager row. To enable paging, set the property to true. The pager row can be customized using the and properties.

You can customize the appearance of the DetailsView control by setting the style properties for different parts of the control. The following table lists the style properties that you can set.

Style property

Description

The style settings for the alternating data rows in the DetailsView control. When this property is set, the data rows are displayed in bands, alternating between the settings and the settings.

The style settings for the row that contains the built-in command buttons.

The style settings for the data rows when the DetailsView control is in edit mode.

The style settings for the empty data row that are displayed in the DetailsView control when the data source does not contain any records.

The style settings for the footer row.

The style settings for the header row.

The style settings for the data rows when the DetailsView control is in insert mode.

The style settings for the pager row.

The style settings for the data rows in the DetailsView control. When the property is also set, the data rows are displayed alternating between the settings and the settings.

The style settings for the header column.

The DetailsView control provides several events that you can program against. This allows you to run a custom routine whenever an event occurs. The following table lists the events supported by the DetailsView control. The DetailsView control also inherits these events from its base classes: DataBinding, DataBound, Disposed, Init, Load, PreRender, and Render.

Event

Description

ItemCommand

Occurs when a button is clicked in the DetailsView control.

ItemCreated

Occurs after all DetailsViewRow objects are created in the DetailsView control. This event is often used to modify the values of a record before it is displayed.

ItemDeleted

Occurs when a Delete button is clicked, but after the DetailsView control deletes the record from the data source. This event is often used to check the results of the delete operation.

ItemDeleting

Occurs when a Delete button is clicked, but before the DetailsView control deletes the record from the data source. This event is often used to cancel the delete operation.

ItemInserted

Occurs when an Insert button is clicked, but after the DetailsView control inserts the record. This event is often used to check the results of the insert operation.

ItemInserting

Occurs when an Insert button is clicked, but before the DetailsView control inserts the record. This event is often used to cancel the insert operation.

ItemUpdated

Occurs when an Update button is clicked, but after the DetailsView control updates the row. This event is often used to check the results of the update operation.

ItemUpdating

Occurs when an Update button is clicked, but before the DetailsView control updates the record. This event is often used to cancel the update operation.

ModeChanged

Occurs after the DetailsView control changes modes (edit, insert, or read-only mode). This event is often used to perform a task when the DetailsView control changes modes.

ModeChanging

Occurs before the DetailsView control changes modes (edit, insert, or read-only mode). This event is often used to cancel a mode change.

PageIndexChanged

Occurs when one of the pager buttons is clicked, but after the DetailsView control handles the paging operation. This event is commonly used when you need to perform a task after the user navigates to a different record in the control.

PageIndexChanging

Occurs when one of the pager buttons is clicked, but before the DetailsView control handles the paging operation. This event is often used to cancel the paging operation.
