LinqDataSource.Inserted Event

Occurs when an insert operation has finished.

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

public event EventHandler<LinqDataSourceStatusEventArgs> Inserted
<asp:LinqDataSource OnInserted="EventHandler" />

Handle the Inserted event to catch any exceptions from the insert operation or to examine the values after the insert operation has finished. You can retrieve the new values through the LinqDataSourceStatusEventArgs object that is passed to event handlers. For example, you can use the LinqDataSourceStatusEventArgs object to retrieve the identity property generated by a database for a new data record.

The following example shows how to create an event handler for the Inserted event that checks for exceptions and retrieves the identity property for the new record.


protected void LinqDataSource_Inserted(object sender, LinqDataSourceStatusEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Exception == null)
    {
        Product newProduct = (Product)e.Result;
        Literal1.Text = "The new product id is " + newProduct.ProductID;
        Literal1.Visible = true;            
    }
    else
    {
        LogError(e.Exception.Message);
        Literal1.Text = "We are sorry. There was a problem saving the record. The administrator has been notified.";
        Literal1.Visible = true;
        e.ExceptionHandled = true;            
    }
}
