Raises the ItemCreated event. This allows you to provide a custom handler for the event.

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

abstract OnItemCreated : 
        e:DataListItemEventArgs -> unit
override OnItemCreated : 
        e:DataListItemEventArgs -> unit


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataListItemEventArgs

A DataListItemEventArgs that contains event data.

Use the OnItemCreated method to provide a custom handler for the ItemCreated event.

The ItemCreated event is raised when an item in the DataList control is created, both during round-trips and at the time data is bound to the control.

The ItemCreated event is commonly used to control the content and appearance of a row in the DataList control.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see How to: Consume Events in a Web Forms Application.

The OnItemCreated method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding OnItemCreated in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnItemCreated method so that registered delegates receive the event.

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


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 Forms Page Code Model.
