LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs Class

Provides data for the Updating event.


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

public ref class LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs : public CancelEventArgs

The LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public methodLinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs(LinqDataSourceValidationException)Initializes a new instance of the LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs class with the specified exception.
Public methodLinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs(Object, Object)Initializes a new instance of the LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs class.

Public propertyCancelGets or sets a value indicating whether the event should be canceled. (Inherited from CancelEventArgs.)
Public propertyExceptionGets the exception that was thrown while the data was being validated before the update operation.
Public propertyExceptionHandledGets or sets a value that indicates whether the exception was handled and that it should not be thrown again.
Public propertyNewObjectGets the object that contains the values that will be saved in the data source.
Public propertyOriginalObjectGets the object that contains the values that were originally retrieved from the data source.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs object is passed to any event handler for the Updating event. You can use the LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs object to examine the data before the update operation is executed in the data source. You can then validate the data, examine validation exceptions thrown by the data class, or change a value before the update. You can also cancel the update operation.

The OriginalObject object contains the data that was originally retrieved from the data source. The NewObject object contains the data that will be saved in the data source during the update operation.

If the object that represents the data source throws a validation exception before updating the data, the Exception property contains an instance of the LinqDataSourceValidationException class. You can retrieve all the validation exceptions through the InnerExceptions property. If no validation exception is thrown, the Exception property contains nullptr. If you handle the validation exceptions and do not want the exception to be re-thrown, set the ExceptionHandled property to true.

By default, the LinqDataSource control stores the original values from the data source in view state on the Web page, except those whose ColumnAttribute attribute is marked as UpdateCheck.Never. LINQ to SQL automatically checks the integrity of the data before updating the data. It does this by comparing the current values in the data source with the original values stored in view state. LINQ to SQL raises an exception if the values in the data source have changed. You can perform additional data validation by creating a handler for the Updating event.

The following example shows an event handler for the Updating event. The example shows how to compare properties from the OriginalObject property and the NewObject property to determine whether the value in the Category property has changed. If so, the CategoryChanged property of the object in the NewObject property is set to true.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The following example shows an event handler for the Updating event. It displays any validation exception messages by using a Label control.

Protected Sub LinqDataSource_Updating(ByVal sender As Object, _
        ByVal e As LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs)
    If (e.Exception IsNot Nothing) Then
        For Each innerException As KeyValuePair(Of String, Exception) _
               In e.Exception.InnerExceptions
            Label1.Text &= innerException.Key & ": " & _
                innerException.Value.Message & "<br />"
        e.ExceptionHandled = True
    End If
End Sub


protected void LinqDataSource_Updating(object sender, 
        LinqDataSourceUpdateEventArgs e)
    if (e.Exception != null)
        foreach (KeyValuePair<string, Exception> innerException in 
        Label1.Text += innerException.Key + ": " + 
            innerException.Value.Message + "<br />";
        e.ExceptionHandled = true;
