The DetailsView control raises the ItemCommand event when a button within a ButtonField, CommandField, or TemplateField row field is clicked. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine whenever this event occurs.
The DetailsView control also raises other specialized events when certain buttons are clicked (buttons with the CommandName property set to "Delete", "Insert", "Page", or "Update"). When using one of these buttons, you should consider using one of the specialized events provided by the control (such as ItemDeleted or ItemDeleting).
When you create a 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 Events and Delegates.
