The ItemCommand event is raised when any button for an item in the DataList control is clicked. This allows you to programmatically test for when a specific command button is clicked and take appropriate action. This event is commonly used to handle custom command buttons for the DataList control.
When you create a NIB: Events and Delegates.delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event handler delegates, see
The following example demonstrates how to define event handlers for the EditCommand, UpdateCommand, CancelCommand and DeleteCommand events of a DataList control. This example specifies the event handlers declaratively, setting the event handler for each command property on the DataList control.
The following code example demonstrates how to specify the event handlers and programmatically add them to the events in the Page_Load method.
