LinqDataSourceDeleteEventArgs.OriginalObject Property

.NET Framework (current version)

Gets the object that represents the data to delete.

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

public object OriginalObject { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object

An object of the type specified in the TableName property that contains the data to delete.

You can use the OriginalObject property to interact with the data before it is deleted. You can validate the data, or you can cancel the event by setting the Cancel property to true. You can modify which record is deleted by changing the value or values of the object in the OriginalObject property.

The following example shows how to cancel the delete operation based on a property in the OriginalObject property and a value from the Web page. In the example, users must select a CheckBox control to confirm that they want to delete a product record when its OnSale property is set to true.

protected void LinqDataSource_Deleting(object sender, LinqDataSourceDeleteEventArgs e)
    Product product = (Product)e.OriginalObject;
    if (product.OnSale && !confirmCheckBox.Checked)
        e.Cancel = true;
