GridViewRowEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that handles the RowCreated and RowDataBound events of a GridView control.

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

public delegate void GridViewRowEventHandler(
	Object sender,
	GridViewRowEventArgs e
)

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

e
Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs

A GridViewRowEventArgs object that contains the event data.

Before the GridView control can be rendered, a GridViewRow object must be created for each row in the control. The RowCreated event is raised each time a row in the GridView control is created. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as adding custom content to a row, whenever this event occurs.

Similarly, each row in the control must be bound to a record in the data source before the GridView control can be rendered. The RowDataBound event is raised when a data row (represented by a GridViewRow object) is bound to data in the GridView control. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as modifying the values of the data bound to the row, whenever this event occurs.

When you create a GridViewRowEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.

The following example demonstrates how to programmatically add a GridViewRowEventHandler delegate to the RowDataBound event of a GridView control.
