Redirect after DeleteCommand from FormView

Hello.

I have a page with a FormView control.  I have a linkbutton at the bottom that executes the DeleteCommand for the current record being viewed.  The SQL works when I test it in the expression builder.  What I would like to see happen is for the record to be deleted and for the user to be redirected to another page (which shows all records).  Whenever I put the URL in the PostBackUrl property, the user is redirected but the record is not deleted.  It seems like the redilrection is happening before the delete command.  Any ideas?

At the end of your event which delete the record, add

Response.Redirect("your page shows all records")

PostBackUrl is used to post the form to another page. In your case, you still want to postback to current page, delete the record then redirect.

joechina,

I did not use an event to delete the record.  The LinkButton uses the Delete command which uses the DELETE query in my SQLDataSource.  Should I create an event to handle this?  If so, what type of event?  I already tried that solution in the Click, Command, and DataBinding event but it did not work.

In this case, just add a event handler for ItemDeleted event.
