FormViewDeletedEventArgs.Exception Property

Gets the exception (if any) that was raised during the delete operation.

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

public Exception Exception { get; }
/** @property */
public Exception get_Exception ()

public function get Exception () : Exception

Not applicable.

Property Value

An Exception that represents the exception that was raised during the delete operation.

Use the Exception property to determine the exception (if any) that was raised during the delete operation. If no exceptions were raised, this property returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

NoteNote:

If an exception was raised and you decide to handle the exception in the event handler, be sure to set the ExceptionHandled property to true; otherwise, the FormView control re-throws the exception.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Exception property to determine whether an exception occurred during a delete operation.

  void EmployeeFormView_ItemDeleted(Object sender, FormViewDeletedEventArgs e)
  {
    // Use the Exception property to determine whether an exception
    // occurred during the delete operation.
    if (e.Exception == null)
    {
      // Use the AffectedRows property to determine whether the
      // record was deleted. Sometimes an error might occur that 
      // does not raise an exception, but prevents the delete
      // operation from completing.
      if (e.AffectedRows == 1)
      {
        MessageLabel.Text = "Record deleted successfully.";
      }
      else
      {
        MessageLabel.Text = "An error occurred during the delete operation.";
      }
    }
    else
    {
      // Insert the code to handle the exception.
      MessageLabel.Text = e.Exception.Message;
      
      // Use the ExceptionHandled property to indicate that the 
      // exception has already been handled.
      e.ExceptionHandled = true;
    }
  }
