GridView::OnRowCommand Method

Raises the RowCommand event.

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

protected:
virtual void OnRowCommand(
	GridViewCommandEventArgs^ e
)

The RowCommand event is raised when a button is clicked in the GridView control. This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine whenever this event occurs.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnRowCommand method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding OnRowCommand in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnRowCommand method so that registered delegates receive the event.

A Visual Studio Web site project with source code is available to accompany this topic: Download.

The following example demonstrates how provide an event-handling method for the RowCommand event. When the Add button is clicked for a given row of the GridView control, the name of the selected customer is added to a ListBox control.
