Remarks

The ItemCommand event is raised when a button in the ListView control is clicked. This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine whenever this event occurs.

Note

The ListView control also raises other events when certain buttons are clicked (for example, buttons with the CommandName property set to "Delete", "Update", or "Page"). When you use one of these buttons, you can handle one of the specialized events that are provided by the control, such as the ItemDeleted or ItemDeleting events.

A ListViewCommandEventArgs object is passed to the event-handling method, which enables you to determine the command name and command argument of the button that was clicked. To determine the command name use the CommandName property, and to determine the command argument, use the CommandArgument property. You can also access the button control that raised the event by using the CommandSource property.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the ListViewCommandEventArgs class, see the ListViewCommandEventArgs constructor.
