Repeater.ItemCommand Event

Occurs when a button is clicked in the Repeater control.

[Visual Basic]
Public Event ItemCommand As RepeaterCommandEventHandler
[C#]
public event RepeaterCommandEventHandler ItemCommand;
[C++]
public: __event RepeaterCommandEventHandler* ItemCommand;

[JScript] In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.

Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type RepeaterCommandEventArgs containing data related to this event. The following RepeaterCommandEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.

Property Description
CommandArgument (inherited from CommandEventArgs) Gets the argument for the command.
CommandName (inherited from CommandEventArgs) Gets the name of the command.
CommandSource Gets the source of the command.
Item Gets the RepeaterItem associated with the event.

Remarks

This event is raised when a button in the Repeater is clicked.

This event causes a round-trip from the client to occur.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the ItemCommand event of the Repeater. Information about the button is displayed when a Button control within the Repeater is clicked.
