I have code inside of a Onrowdeleting method, and this code correctly checks a condition to see if I want to delete the selected row.  My question is how do I tell the GridView and/or the DataSource to NOT execute the delete statement if a condition is met?

What I decided to do now was Delete the records to be deleted through code.  But now, I am receiving an error that the DeleteComman was not set on the DataSource.  How do I get the DeleteCommand to not fire when the user click the "Delete" link?

in the rowdeletingcommand, set the cancel command to true which will not fire the DeleteCommand.

 protected void grdProjects_RowDeleting(object sender, GridViewDeleteEventArgs e)
 {
  // Place deleting code here
  e.Cancel = true;
 }
