How do I pass arguments to an OnDataBinding function?

I have a linkButton inside a repeater and I call a function OnDataBinding to add a client side confirm prompt to it. I would like to know how I can pass an argument into this function so I can pass in a string to use as the prompt.

Here is what my link button looks like currently...

<ASP:LinkButton ID="deleteLink" RunAt="Server" OnDataBinding='AddConfirmToLink' OnCommand="ProcessArticleCmd" CommandName="ProcessArticleCmd_delete" CommandArgument='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"recordID") %>' Text="Delete" CausesValidation="False" />


Thanks :)

Add the prompt string to your command argument.

CommandArgument='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"recordID") & ":PromptHere" %>'

If you pass the CommandArgument into the function, you can do something like this:

Dim ca As String() = "recID:Prompt".Split(":".ToCharArray())
Dim sID As String = ca(0)
Dim sCA As String = ca(1)

The sID would have the record id and the sCA would have the command argument.

I was under the impression that the CommandArgument was only available to the OnCommand event handler and not to both the OnDataBinding and OnCommand. Can you please confirm that this is NOT the case and I will test your suggestion?


Thanks!

My bad in the sense that I thought you were using the ItemDataBound event, which is what I would suggest you try:

If you want to configure the buttons that appear in repeater items, use the ItemDataBound event like this:  Let's say your button is named cmdPromptConfig.

If e.Item.ItemType <> ListItemType.Header And e.Item.ItemType <> ListItemType.Footer Then
     ' resolve control.
     Dim btn As Button = CType(e.FindControl("cmdPromptConfig", Button)

     ' call your routine, passing the instance of the button, to configure it for the prompt.  you will have access
     ' to the CommandArgument which should have been set from your data binding code.
End If
