Multiple arguments with CommandArgument

Handy tip for passing as many arguments as you like with an OnCommand event.

Simply add the attributes you want to pass and the values:

<asp:LinkButton  ID=”LinkButton1″ runat=”server” OnCommand=”link_Clicked” CommandArgument='<%# Eval(“arg1”) %>’ NewArg='<%# Eval(“arg2”) %>‘>Link Here</asp:LinkButton>

Then in the event handler you can access them from the sender attributes:

protected void SubCatLink_Clicked(object sender, CommandEventArgs e)
LinkButton link = (LinkButton)sender;
String NewVal = link.Attributes[“NewArg”].toString();
