BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method that will handle the BeforeAddDataBoundRow event of a ListObject.

public delegate void BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler(object sender, BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventArgs e);

Parameters

sender
Object

The source of the event.

Inheritance
BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler

Examples

The following code example creates a DataTable and a ListObject, and binds the ListObject to the DataTable. It then creates a BeforeAddDataBoundRow event handler that cancels the addition of the new row. To test the event, manually add a new row to the ListObject on sheet 1.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void ListObject_BeforeAddDataBoundRow()
{
    // Create a new DataSet and DataTable.
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    DataTable dt = ds.Tables.Add("Customers");
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("LastName"));
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("FirstName"));

    // Add a new row to the DataTable.
    DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
    dr["LastName"] = "Chan";
    dr["FirstName"] = "Gareth";
    dt.Rows.Add(dr);

    // Create a list object.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ListObject list1 = 
        this.Controls.AddListObject(
        this.Range["A1"], "list1");

    // Bind the list object to the DataTable.
    list1.AutoSetDataBoundColumnHeaders = true;
    list1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers", "LastName",
        "FirstName");

    // Create the event handler.
    list1.BeforeAddDataBoundRow += new 
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.
        BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler(
        list1_BeforeAddDataBoundRow);
}

void list1_BeforeAddDataBoundRow(object sender, 
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
    MessageBox.Show("This data is read-only.");
}
WithEvents BeforeAddDataBoundRowList As _
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ListObject
Private Sub ListObject_BeforeAddDataBoundRow()
    ' Create a new DataSet and DataTable.
    Dim ds As New DataSet()
    Dim dt As DataTable = ds.Tables.Add("Customers")
    dt.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("LastName"))
    dt.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("FirstName"))

    ' Add a new row to the DataTable.
    Dim dr As DataRow = dt.NewRow()
    dr("LastName") = "Chan"
    dr("FirstName") = "Gareth"
    dt.Rows.Add(dr)

    ' Create a list object.
    BeforeAddDataBoundRowList = _
        Me.Controls.AddListObject(Me.Range("A1"), _
        "BeforeAddDataBoundRowList")

    ' Bind the list object to the DataTable.
    BeforeAddDataBoundRowList.AutoSetDataBoundColumnHeaders = True
    BeforeAddDataBoundRowList.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers", _
        "LastName", "FirstName")
End Sub


Private Sub List1_BeforeAddDataBoundRow(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventArgs) _
    Handles BeforeAddDataBoundRowList.BeforeAddDataBoundRow
    e.Cancel = True
    MessageBox.Show("This data is read-only.")

End Sub

Remarks

When you create a BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, until you remove the delegate.
