Event Data

The ItemCommand event's data class is NavBarItemCommandEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description

CommandSource Gets an object representing the control which forced a postback.

The navbar control allows the contents of its items to be customized through defining templates. A template of an item can be specified by the ASPxNavBar.ItemTemplate, NavBarGroup.ItemTemplate or NavBarItem.Template property. A template is a set of HTML elements and controls which constitute a layout for a particular item.

The ItemCommand event is fired when any control contained within a templated item raises the Command event. The ItemCommand event is commonly used when a specific command name is associated with a button control. This allows you to create multiple button controls within different templated items and programmatically determine which button control is clicked.

Write an ItemCommand event handler to perform specific actions each time the Command event is raised by any control contained within any templated item. The ItemCommand event provides a parameter of the NavBarItemCommandEventArgs type.
