Hello, I m trying to read a command name inside _ItemCommand  and call functions on different command names
this is what i'm trying to test here

 Private Sub DepartmentGrid_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs) Handles DepartmentGrid.ItemCommand

if e.commandName.toString = "delete"
response.redirect("bluh.aspx?delete=true")
end if

End Sub

is this the right way to test commandName cuz for some reasons it will not get into if statement

thank you

First of all, you don't the .ToString() call because e.CommandName is already a string.

Second, Are you sure the method is being called?
That is, the following conditions need to be met for this function to be called:
1. The ItemCommand event handler is bound to the ItemCommand even of the datagrid.  You should have in your code somewhere a DepartmentGrid.ItemCommand += DepartmentGrid_ItemCommand, or in your aspx a similar attribute on your datagrid.
2. You need to have a button or something whose CommandName is set to "delete".  This is case-sensitive, unless you check: if e.CommandName.ToLower() = "delete"
3. That button needs to be inside the datagrid (in the a TemplateColumn for example).

In general, though, your logic should work.  It's probably just a matter of binding the right handler to the right event.

(Side note: you might want to consider using Microsoft's case for your functions for better readability and cross-language support.)
