Occurs before a Delete operation.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
Handle the event to perform additional initialization that is specific to your application, to validate the values of parameters, or to change the parameter values before the ObjectDataSource control performs the delete operation. The parameters are available as an IDictionary collection that is accessed by the InputParameters property, which is exposed by the ObjectDataSourceMethodEventArgs object.
For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
This section contains two code examples. The first code example demonstrates how to use an ObjectDataSource object with a business object and a GridView control to delete data. The second code example shows the EmployeeLogic class that is used in the first code example.
The following code example demonstrates how to use an ObjectDataSource control with a business object and a GridView control to delete data. Initially, the GridView control displays a set of all employees, using the method that is specified by the SelectMethod property to retrieve the data from the EmployeeLogic object. Because the AutoGenerateDeleteButton property is set to true, the GridView control automatically displays a Delete button.
If you click the Delete button, the delete operation is performed using the method that is specified by the DeleteMethod property and any parameters that are specified in the DeleteParameters collection. In this code example, some preprocessing and post-processing steps are also performed. The NorthwindEmployeeDeleting delegate is called to handle the event before the operation is performed, and the NorthwindEmployeeDeleted delegate is called to handle the Deleted event after the operation has completed to perform exception handling. In this code example, if a NorthwindDataException is thrown, it is handled by the NorthwindEmployeeDeleted method.
The following code example shows the EmployeeLogic class that is used in the preceding code example.
