DetailsView.ItemInserted Event

Occurs when an Insert button within a DetailsView control is clicked, but after the insert operation.

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

'Declaration
Public Event ItemInserted As DetailsViewInsertedEventHandler
'Usage
Dim instance As DetailsView 
Dim handler As DetailsViewInsertedEventHandler 

AddHandler instance.ItemInserted, handler
<asp:DetailsView OnItemInserted="DetailsViewInsertedEventHandler" />

The ItemInserted event is raised when an Insert button within the DetailsView control is clicked, but after the insert operation. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine, such as checking the results of the insert operation, whenever this event occurs.

A DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs object is passed to the event handler, which allows you to determine the number of rows affected and any exceptions that might have occurred. You can also indicate whether the exception was handled in the event handler by setting the ExceptionHandled property. To keep the control in insert mode after an insert operation, set the KeepInInsertMode property to true.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ItemInserted event to refresh a GridView control after a DetailsView control performs an insert operation. This keeps the GridView control synchronized with the DetailsView control.
