FormView.ItemCreated Event

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

Occurs after all the rows are created in a FormView control.

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

public event EventHandler ItemCreated
/** @event */
public void add_ItemCreated (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_ItemCreated (EventHandler value)

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

The ItemCreated event is raised after all rows are created in a FormView control. This can occur when the control is first rendered, or when the user navigates to another record. You can use this event to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as adding to or modifying the contents of a row, whenever this event occurs.

NoteNote

The ItemCreated event occurs before the FormView control is bound to data. To modify the value of a bound field, use the DataBound event.

You can access the header, footer, and pager rows in the FormView control by using the HeaderRow, FooterRow, TopPagerRow, or BottomPagerRow properties, respectively. To access the data row, use the Row property.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following example demonstrates how to use the ItemCreated event to update the text of a Label control contained in the pager row.


<%@ Page language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">

  void EmployeeFormView_DataBound(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {

    // Get the pager row.
    FormViewRow pagerRow = EmployeeFormView.BottomPagerRow;

    // Get the Label controls that display the current page information 
    // from the pager row.
    Label pageNum = (Label)pagerRow.Cells[0].FindControl("PageNumberLabel");
    Label totalNum = (Label)pagerRow.Cells[0].FindControl("TotalPagesLabel");

    if ((pageNum != null) && (totalNum != null))
    {
      // Update the Label controls with the current page values.
      int page = EmployeeFormView.PageIndex + 1;
      int count = EmployeeFormView.PageCount;

      pageNum.Text = page.ToString();
      totalNum.Text = count.ToString();
    }    

  }
    
</script>
