FormViewInsertedEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method that handles the ItemInserted event of a FormView control.

public delegate void FormViewInsertedEventHandler(System::Object ^ sender, FormViewInsertedEventArgs ^ e);
public delegate void FormViewInsertedEventHandler(object sender, FormViewInsertedEventArgs e);
type FormViewInsertedEventHandler = delegate of obj * FormViewInsertedEventArgs -> unit
Public Delegate Sub FormViewInsertedEventHandler(sender As Object, e As FormViewInsertedEventArgs)

Parameters

sender
Object

The source of the event.

e
FormViewInsertedEventArgs

A FormViewInsertedEventArgs that contains the event data.

Inheritance
FormViewInsertedEventHandler

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to programmatically add a FormViewInsertedEventHandler delegate to the ItemInserted event of a FormView control.

Remarks

The FormView control raises the ItemInserted event when an Insert button (a button with its CommandName property set to "Insert") within the control is clicked, but after the FormView control inserts the record. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as checking the results of an insert operation, whenever this event occurs.

When you create a FormViewInsertedEventHandler 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, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.

Extension Methods
