Public NotInheritable Class SqlRowUpdatingEventArgs
	Inherits RowUpdatingEventArgs

System_CAPS_pubmethodSqlRowUpdatingEventArgs(DataRow, IDbCommand, StatementType, DataTableMapping)

Initializes a new instance of the SqlRowUpdatingEventArgs class.


Gets or sets the SqlCommand to execute when performing the Update.


Gets any errors generated by the .NET Framework data provider when the Command executes.(Inherited from RowUpdatingEventArgs.)


Gets the DataRow that will be sent to the server as part of an insert, update, or delete operation.(Inherited from RowUpdatingEventArgs.)


Gets the type of SQL statement to execute.(Inherited from RowUpdatingEventArgs.)


Gets or sets the UpdateStatus of the Command property.(Inherited from RowUpdatingEventArgs.)


Gets the DataTableMapping to send through the Update.(Inherited from RowUpdatingEventArgs.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The RowUpdating event is raised before an Update to a row.

When you are using Update, there are two events that occur for each data row updated. The order of execution is as follows:

  1. The values in the DataRow are moved to the parameter values.

  2. The OnRowUpdating event is raised.

  3. The command executes.

  4. If the command is set to FirstReturnedRecord, and the first returned result is placed in the DataRow.

  5. If there are output parameters, they are placed in the DataRow.

  6. The OnRowUpdated event is raised.

  7. AcceptChanges is called.

The following example shows how to use both the RowUpdating and RowUpdated events.

The RowUpdating event returns this output:

event args: (command=System.Data.SqlClient.SQLCommand commandType=2 status=0)

The RowUpdated event returns this output:

event args: (command=System.Data.SqlClient.SQLCommand commandType=2 recordsAffected=1 row=System.Data.DataRow[37] status=0)
