ObjectDataSource.Selecting Event


Occurs before a Select() operation.

 event System::Web::UI::WebControls::ObjectDataSourceSelectingEventHandler ^ Selecting;
public event System.Web.UI.WebControls.ObjectDataSourceSelectingEventHandler Selecting;
member this.Selecting : System.Web.UI.WebControls.ObjectDataSourceSelectingEventHandler 
Public Custom Event Selecting As ObjectDataSourceSelectingEventHandler 

Event Type


Handle the Selecting event to perform additional initialization that is specific to your application, to validate the values of parameters, or to change the parameter values before the ObjectDataSource control performs the data retrieval operation. The parameters are available as an IDictionary collection that is accessed by the InputParameters property, which is exposed by the ObjectDataSourceMethodEventArgs object.

This event can be fired twice for a single call to the Select method, if the SelectCountMethod property is set. The ExecutingSelectCount property of the ObjectDataSourceSelectingEventArgs object is used to determine if select was called to retrieve data or retrieve the count.
