Occurs before an insert operation.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
Handle the 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 SqlDataSource control performs the insert operation.
The connection to the underlying data source is not yet open when the event handler delegate is called. Therefore, you cannot cancel the database operation directly by calling the Cancel method on the DbCommand object that is exposed by the SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs object. You can, however, cancel the database operation by setting the Cancel property of the SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs to true.

The following code example demonstrates how to retrieve data from Microsoft SQL Server, display it in a GridView control. The example also uses a DetailsView control to display details of the selected row in the GridView, and as a form to insert new records.
Initially, the data is displayed in the GridView control and the selected row of the GridView is also displayed in the DetailsView control. The GridView and DetailsView controls use different data source controls; the one that is associated with the DetailsView has the FilterExpression and FilterParameters properties, which ensure that the selected row of the GridView is displayed.
If you click the automatically generated Insert button of the DetailsView control, the DetailsView shows a different user interface, which is used to insert a new record. The example uses a stored procedure to insert records and returns the primary key of the inserted row. If you insert a record, the DetailsView automatically populates the InsertParameters collection with values from the bound columns and calls the Insert method. The DetailsView can infer the correct parameters from any BoundField object, and a parameter for the TemplateField object when the ASP.NET two-way data-binding syntax is used. In this example, an additional parameter is added in the OnInserting event handler to handle the primary key that is returned by the stored procedure.
Finally, after data is inserted by the DetailsView control into the database, the OnInserted event handler is called to handle the Inserted event, the value of the primary key of the inserted row is displayed, and the DataBind method of the GridView control is called explicitly to refresh the data.
