DetailsView.ItemCommand Event

Note: This event is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Occurs when a button within a DetailsView control is clicked.

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

event DetailsViewCommandEventHandler^ ItemCommand {
	void add (DetailsViewCommandEventHandler^ value);
	void remove (DetailsViewCommandEventHandler^ value);
/** @event */
public void add_ItemCommand (DetailsViewCommandEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_ItemCommand (DetailsViewCommandEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The ItemCommand event is raised when a button within the DetailsView control is clicked. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine whenever this event occurs.

A DetailsViewCommandEventArgs object is passed to the event handler, which allows you to determine the command name and command argument of the button clicked. To determine the index of the current record, use the PageIndex property.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ItemCommand event to handle a button click in a DetailsView control. When the user clicks the Add Contact button, the item is added to a ListBox control.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
