GridViewDeleteEventArgs Class

Provides data for the RowDeleting event.

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

[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public class GridViewDeleteEventArgs : CancelEventArgs

The GridView control raises the RowDeleting event when a Delete button is clicked, but before the GridView control deletes the record. (A Delete button is a button control whose CommandName property is set to "Delete".) You can perform a custom routine whenever this event occurs, such as canceling the delete operation.

A GridViewDeleteEventArgs object is passed to the event handler. This enables you to determine the index of the row being deleted and to cancel the delete operation. To cancel the delete operation, set the Cancel property of the GridViewDeleteEventArgs object to true. You can also manipulate the Keys and Values collections before the values are passed to the data source.

For more information about how to handle events, see Consuming Events.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of GridViewDeleteEventArgs, see the GridViewDeleteEventArgs constructor.

The following example shows how to use the GridViewDeleteEventArgs object that is passed to the event handler. The code cancels the delete operation if the user tries to remove the last record from a GridView control.
