public object NewObject { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object

An object that contains the data to insert.

The NewObject property contains the data that will be inserted into the data source. Create a handler for the Inserting event and retrieve the NewObject property in order to validate the data, change the data, or cancel the insert operation before the data operation is executed.

The NewObject property returns an object of type Object. You can cast this object to the type of the class that represents the data.

The following example shows a handler for the Inserting event. The object from the NewObject property is cast to a type named Product. The DateModified property of the Product object is set to the current date and time.

protected void LinqDataSource_Inserting(object sender, LinqDataSourceInsertEventArgs e)
    Product product = (Product)e.NewObject;
    product.DateModified = DateTime.Now;
