Command.ItemCommand Command.ItemCommand Command.ItemCommand Command.ItemCommand Event

Definition

Occurs when the user selects a command that is associated with an ObjectList item. This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see Mobile Apps & Sites with ASP.NET.

public:
 event System::Web::UI::WebControls::CommandEventHandler ^ ItemCommand;
public event System.Web.UI.WebControls.CommandEventHandler ItemCommand;
member this.ItemCommand : System.Web.UI.WebControls.CommandEventHandler 
Public Custom Event ItemCommand As CommandEventHandler 

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ItemCommand event for multiple commands on a page.

<%@ Page Language="C#" 
    Inherits="System.Web.UI.MobileControls.MobilePage" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="mobile" 
    Namespace="System.Web.UI.MobileControls" 
    Assembly="System.Web.Mobile" %>

<script runat="server">
    void cmd_OnItemCommand(object sender, CommandEventArgs e)
    {
        // Create variables for data
        string txt1 = "Today's quote of {0} is {1}";
        string txt2 = "Yesterday's quote of {0} was {1}";
        int val = (Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument) - 5);
        
        // Set the text values of the labels
        message1.Text = String.Format(txt1, e.CommandName, 
            e.CommandArgument);
        message2.Text = String.Format(txt2, e.CommandName, val);
    }
</script>

Remarks

When an ItemCommand event handler is defined, the Command control notifies the handler when an item event is generated through user interaction.

Unlike the Click event, the ItemCommand event is bubbled up to the parent controls. The ItemCommand event rendering is device-specific and is discussed in detail in the "Device-Specific Behavior" section of System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Command.

The OnItemCommand event is raised after an OnClick event. In a scenario where you repeat the same set of actions each time a command button is clicked, you can use either the CommandName or CommandArgument property of the Command control to identify which command button the user clicked.
