DataGridPageChangedEventArgs.CommandSource Property

Gets the source of the command.

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

public Object CommandSource { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The source of the command.

Use the CommandSource property to determine the source of the command that raised the event. Because this event is raised only when a button in the page selection element of the DataGrid control is clicked, the returned source is a DataGridItem object that represents the page selection element.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CommandSource property to programmatically control the command source that raises the event.
