Occurs when a row's Delete button is clicked, but after the GridView control deletes the row.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The event is raised when a row's Delete button is clicked, but after the GridView control deletes the row. This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as checking the results of the delete operation, whenever this event occurs.
A GridViewDeletedEventArgs object is passed to the event-handling method, which enables you to determine the number of rows affected and any exceptions that might have occurred. You can also indicate whether the exception was handled in the event-handling method by setting the ExceptionHandled property of the GridViewDeletedEventArgs object.
For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
The following example demonstrates how to use the event to check the result of the delete operation. A message is displayed to indicate to the user whether the operation succeeded.
