How do I detect user clicking on "cancel" on ASP.NET 2.0 DetailsView object standard "insert/cancel" bar? I'm a classic asp developer and I haven't yet got my head around the new technology for all this!  The DetailsView object has an ID of "AcInsert".  I cannot find any relevant event to attach to in the events list, so I'm stumped...  I presume it'll be something like finding the right eventhandler and looking for AcInsert.cancelClicked() having happened or something like that?

VBScript developer, so no C/C# please!

hey bud,

on your itemcommand event, you can check if the event fired is cancel, e.g.  e.commandname="cancel"

...
...
        Select Case e.CommandName
            Case "Cancel"
                'Do Something here
                GridUnitsOut.EditIndex = -1 'edit mode
        End Select

basically, the DetailsView have OnItemCommand event handler which deals with commands/button is fired, so in your details view you need to specify which method will handle this event, i.e.:

    DetailsView ItemCommand Example</h3>
        <asp:DetailsView
           ....
            OnItemCommand="MyDetailsView_ItemCommand"
            ....>

also make sure if you specified the cancel button that it should look something like:

<asp:ButtonField CommandName="Cancel" Text="Cancel" />

Event handelry code:

 Sub MyDetailsView_ItemCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DetailsViewCommandEventArgs)
   
        ' Use the CommandName property to determine which button
        ' was clicked.

        Select Case e.CommandName
            Case "Cancel"
                'Do Something here
                MyDetailsView.EditIndex = -1 'edit mode
        End Select

   End Sub
