abstract ShowDeleteButton : bool with get, set
override ShowDeleteButton : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to display a Delete button in a CommandField; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Use the ShowDeleteButton property to specify whether a Delete button is displayed in a CommandField field for each record in the data-source control. The Delete button allows you to remove a record from the data source.

System_CAPS_noteNote

When a data-bound control is used in combination with a data source control (such as a SqlDataSource control), the data-bound control can take advantage of the data source control's capabilities and provide automatic delete functionality. For other data sources, you must provide the routines to perform the delete operation during the appropriate event for the data-bound control.

When the ButtonType property of a CommandField field is set to ButtonType.Button or ButtonType.Link, use the DeleteText property to specify the text to display for a Delete button. Alternatively, you can display an image by first setting the ButtonType property to ButtonType.Image and then setting the DeleteImageUrl property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ShowDeleteButton property to display a Delete button for each record in a GridView control.
