Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The enumeration is used to represent the data-entry modes of a FormView control. To determine the current mode of the control, use the CurrentMode property. After an insert or update operation, the FormView control returns to the mode specified by the DefaultMode property. By default, the control returns to read-only mode. You can specify an alternate mode to return to by setting the DefaultMode property. To change modes programmatically, use the ChangeMode method. When the FormView control changes modes, the events in the following table are raised.
Occurs when a FormView control attempts to change between edit, insert, and read-only mode, but before the mode actually changes. This event is often used to cancel a mode change.
This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
