FormView.ItemInserted Event

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

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

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

public event FormViewInsertedEventHandler ItemInserted
/** @event */
public void add_ItemInserted (FormViewInsertedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_ItemInserted (FormViewInsertedEventHandler value)

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

The FormView control raises the ItemInserted event when an Insert button (a button with its CommandName property set to "Insert") within the control is clicked, but after the FormView control inserts the record. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as checking the results of an insert operation, whenever this event occurs.

A FormViewInsertedEventArgs object is passed to the event-handling method, which allows you to determine the number of records affected and any exceptions that might have occurred. To determine the number of records affected by the insert operation, use the AffectedRows property. Use the Exception property to determine whether any exceptions occurred. You can also indicate whether the exception was handled in the event-handling method by setting the ExceptionHandled property. If you need to access the values of the inserted record, use the Values property.

By default, the FormView control returns to the mode specified by the DefaultMode property after an insert operation. To keep the FormView control in insert mode, set the KeepInInsertMode property to true.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following example demonstrates how to use the ItemInserted event to determine whether an exception occurred during an insert operation.


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

<script runat="server">

  void EmployeeFormView_ItemInserted(Object sender, FormViewInsertedEventArgs e)
  {
    // Use the Exception property to determine whether an exception
    // occurred during the insert operation.
    if (e.Exception == null)
    {
      // Use the AffectedRows property to determine whether the
      // record was inserted. Sometimes an error might occur that 
      // does not raise an exception, but prevents the insert
      // operation from completing.
      if (e.AffectedRows == 1)
      {
        MessageLabel.Text = "Record inserted successfully.";
      }
      else
      {
        MessageLabel.Text = "An error occurred during the insert operation.";
        
        // Use the KeepInInsertMode property to remain in insert mode
        // when an error occurs during the insert operation.
        e.KeepInInsertMode = true;
      }
    }
    else
    {
      // Insert the code to handle the exception.
      MessageLabel.Text = e.Exception.Message;
      
      // Use the ExceptionHandled property to indicate that the 
      // exception has already been handled.
      e.ExceptionHandled = true;
      e.KeepInInsertMode = true;
    }
  }
