SqlDataSourceView.OnDeleting(SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) SqlDataSourceView.OnDeleting(SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) SqlDataSourceView.OnDeleting(SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) SqlDataSourceView.OnDeleting(SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) Method

Definition

Raises the Deleting event before the SqlDataSource control attempts a delete operation.

protected:
 virtual void OnDeleting(System::Web::UI::WebControls::SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs ^ e);
protected virtual void OnDeleting (System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs e);
abstract member OnDeleting : System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs -> unit
override this.OnDeleting : System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs -> unit
Protected Overridable Sub OnDeleting (e As SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs)

Parameters

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to handle the Deleting event, which is raised before a Delete operation occurs. Because this example deletes data from the Northwind database, an OnDeleting handler is added to attempt to back up the database to disk before the delete is performed.

Remarks

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information about how to handle events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The OnDeleting method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding the OnDeleting(SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) method in a derived class, be sure to call the OnDeleting(SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) method for the base class so that registered delegates receive the event.
