public class DetailsViewInsertEventArgs : System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs


The System.Web.UI.WebControls.DetailsView control raises the DetailsView.ItemInserting event when an Insert button (a button with its CommandName property set to "Insert") within the control is clicked, but before the System.Web.UI.WebControls.DetailsView control inserts the record. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine, such as HTML-encoding the values of a record before inserting it in the data source, whenever this event occurs.

A System.Web.UI.WebControls.DetailsViewInsertEventArgs object is passed to the event handler, which allows you to determine the value of an optional command argument sent to the System.Web.UI.WebControls.DetailsView control and to indicate that the insert operation should be canceled. To determine the value of the command argument, use the DetailsViewInsertEventArgs.CommandArgument property. To cancel the insert operation, set the System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs.Cancel property to true. You can also read or modify the field values for the new record by using the DetailsViewInsertEventArgs.Values property.
