Public Event RowUpdated As GridViewUpdatedEventHandler

The RowUpdated event is raised when a row's Update button is clicked, but after the GridView control updates the row. This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as checking the results of the update operation, whenever this event occurs.

A GridViewUpdatedEventArgs 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 GridViewUpdatedEventArgs object.

For more information about handling events, see NIB: Consuming Events.

The following example demonstrates how to use the RowUpdated event to check the result of the update operation. A message is displayed to indicate to the user whether the operation succeeded.
