ObjectDataSourceView.Deleting Event

Occurs before a Delete operation.

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

public event ObjectDataSourceMethodEventHandler Deleting

Handle the Deleting event to perform additional initialization operations that are 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.

The following code example demonstrates how to use an ObjectDataSource control with a business object and a GridView control to delete data. The GridView initially 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 Deleting event before the Delete operation is performed, and the NorthwindEmployeeDeleted delegate is called to handle the Deleted event after the Delete operation has completed, to perform an exception handling. In this example, if a NorthwindDataException is thrown, it is handled by this delegate.

To examine the implementation of the EmployeeLogic middle-tier business object that this code example uses, see ObjectDataSourceStatusEventArgs.
