GridViewRow.RowState GridViewRow.RowState GridViewRow.RowState GridViewRow.RowState Property

Definition

Gets the state of the GridViewRow object.

public:
 virtual property System::Web::UI::WebControls::DataControlRowState RowState { System::Web::UI::WebControls::DataControlRowState get(); void set(System::Web::UI::WebControls::DataControlRowState value); };
public virtual System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataControlRowState RowState { get; set; }
member this.RowState : System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataControlRowState with get, set
Public Overridable Property RowState As DataControlRowState

Property Value

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the RowState property to determine whether a row is in edit mode or is selected. If the user selects a different row while the GridView control is in edit mode, the GridView control exits edit mode.

Remarks

Use the RowType property to determine the state of the GridViewRow object. The state can be a bitwise combination of the values in the following table:

Status value Description
DataControlRowState.Alternate The GridViewRow object is an alternate row in the GridView control.
DataControlRowState.Edit The GridViewRow object is in edit mode.
DataControlRowState.Normal The GridViewRow object is in its normal (default) state.
DataControlRowState.Selected The GridViewRow object is selected.

This property is commonly used to determine the state of a row before performing an operation.
