ListView.OnItemEditing Method

Raises the ItemEditing event.

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

protected virtual void OnItemEditing(
	ListViewEditEventArgs e
)

Parameters

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

The event data.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The ListView control is not bound to a data source control by using the DataSourceID property.

The ItemEditing event is raised when an item's Edit button is clicked, but before the ListView control enters edit mode. (An Edit button is a button control whose CommandName property is set to "Edit".) This enables you to perform a custom routine whenever this event occurs, such as canceling the edit operation.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnItemEditing method also enables derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When you override OnItemEditing in a derived class, call the base class's OnItemEditing method so that registered delegates receive the event.
