GridView.DeleteRow Method

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

Deletes the record at the specified index from the data source.

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

public virtual void DeleteRow (
	int rowIndex
)
public void DeleteRow (
	int rowIndex
)
public function DeleteRow (
	rowIndex : int
)

Parameters

rowIndex

The index of the row to delete.

Use the DeleteRow method to programmatically delete the record at the specified index from the data source. This method is commonly used when you need to delete a record from outside of the GridView control, such as from a different control on the page. Calling this method also raises the RowDeleted and RowDeleting events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DeleteRow method to programmatically delete a record in a GridView control.


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

<script runat="server">

  void UpdateRowButton_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    // Programmatically update the current record in edit mode.
    CustomersGridView.UpdateRow(CustomersGridView.EditIndex, true);
  }

  void CustomersGridView_RowCommand(Object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
  {
    // Enable the UpdateRowButton button only when the GridView control
    // is in edit mode.
    switch (e.CommandName)
    {
      case "Edit":
        UpdateRowButton.Enabled = true;
        break;
      case "Cancel":
        UpdateRowButton.Enabled = false;
        break;
      case "Update":
        UpdateRowButton.Enabled = false;
        break;
      default:
        UpdateRowButton.Enabled = false;
        break;
    }
  }
    
</script>
