Remarks

Use the Exception property to determine the exception that was raised during the delete operation. If no exceptions were raised, this property returns null.

Note

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 GridView control re-throws the exception.
