DataSourceView.CanDelete Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether the DataSourceView object associated with the current DataSourceControl object supports the ExecuteDelete operation.

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

Public Overridable ReadOnly Property CanDelete As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the operation is supported; otherwise, false. The base class implementation returns false.

The CanDelete property reflects not only a capability of the data source control, but also whether it is currently appropriate to perform an operation. For example, even though a data source view supports the ExecuteDelete operation in general, if a required property or some other data is not set, the CanDelete property returns false, as a delete operation would fail.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the CanDelete property and the ExecuteDelete method in a class that extends the DataSourceView class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataSourceView class.

' The CsvDataSourceView does not currently
' permit deletion. You can modify or extend
' this sample to do so.
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property CanDelete() As Boolean
   Get
      Return False
   End Get
End Property

Protected Overrides Function ExecuteDelete(keys As IDictionary, values As IDictionary) As Integer
   Throw New NotSupportedException()
End Function 'ExecuteDelete
