Use the DetailsViewDeleteEventArgs.Keys property to access the values of the key field or fields for the record to be deleted. For example, you can use these values to verify the record before deleting it, to change the record to delete, or to keep a log of deleted records.


This property contains only the key fields. To access the name/value pair values for the non-key fields, use the DetailsViewDeleteEventArgs.Values property.

The DetailsViewDeleteEventArgs.Keys property returns an object that implements the System.Collections.Specialized.IOrderedDictionary interface. The object contains DictionaryEntry objects that represent the key fields.


As a shortcut, you can also use the indexer of the System.Collections.Specialized.IOrderedDictionary object to access the key field values. The advantage in using the indexer is that it returns key field values directly.

This property is read-only; however, you can modify the key field values of the System.Collections.Specialized.IOrderedDictionary object it returns. If you change the key field values, the corresponding record is be deleted from the data source.
