EditCommand Event

DataGrid.EditCommand Event

Occurs when the Edit button is clicked for an item in the DataGrid control.

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

member EditCommand : IEvent<DataGridCommandEventHandler,
    DataGridCommandEventArgs>

The EditCommand event is raised when the Edit button is clicked for an item in the DataGrid control.

A typical handler for the EditCommand event sets the EditItemIndex property to the selected row and then rebinds the data to the DataGrid control.

Caution noteCaution

Text is not HTML encoded before it is displayed in the DataGrid control. This makes it possible to embed script within HTML tags in the text. If the values for the control come from user input, be sure to validate the values to reduce security vulnerabilities.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the EditCommand event to edit an item in the DataGrid control.
