DataList.ItemDataBound Event

Occurs when an item is data bound to the DataList control.

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

public event DataListItemEventHandler ItemDataBound
/** @event */
public void add_ItemDataBound (DataListItemEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_ItemDataBound (DataListItemEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

The ItemDataBound event is raised after an item is data bound to the DataList control. This event provides you with the last opportunity to access the data item before it is displayed on the client. After this event is raised, the data item is no longer available.

For more information about handling events, see How to: Consume Events in a Web Forms Application.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the ItemDataBound event to display the order in which items in the DataList control are bound to the control.

NoteNote:

The following code sample uses the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see ASP.NET Web Page Code Model.
