DetailsView.ModeChanged Event

Occurs when a DetailsView control attempts to change between edit, insert, and read-only mode, but after the CurrentMode property is updated.

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

public event EventHandler ModeChanged
<asp:DetailsView OnModeChanged="EventHandler" />

The ModeChanged event is raised when a DetailsView control attempts to change between edit, insert, and read-only mode, but after the CurrentMode property is updated. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine, such as synchronizing the DetailsView control with another control, whenever this event occurs.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ModeChanged event to display the current mode in the header row.
