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

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 NIB: Consuming Events.

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