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

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

member EditCommand : IEvent<DataListCommandEventHandler,
    DataListCommandEventArgs>

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

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

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

Text is not HTML encoded before it is displayed in the DataList 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.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

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. You can use validation controls to verify user input before displaying the input text in a control. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. For more information, see Securing Standard ControlsHow to: Protect Against Script Exploits in a Web Application by Applying HTML Encoding to Strings, and Validating User Input in ASP.NET Web Pages.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the EditCommand event. It allows you to edit the selected item in the DataList control when the Edit button is clicked.
