For example, this event triggers everytimes the users switches to another row.
On the other hand, the Cell Value Changed event seems to trigger only when the value of the cell changes, which means the validation code runs only when the value changes and not everytime a user changes cells.
If the current cell hosts an editing control and Is Current Cell In Edit Mode is true, you can retrieve the editing control through the Editing Control property.
I would like to manipulate a cell in my Data Grid View when it is validating so that if the user enters a value that is not valid for the database, but is easily converted to valid data, the program will change the value to an appropriate one.
One would not expect validation to occur at this point, right? If the user has made no changes, then the validation will succeed because there have been no changes since the last time it was validated.
Is it an issue with the validation being a time consuming task?
Thanks, Depends on what design pattern (if any) you are following.
This, therefore, undoes any action you perform in the handler.
What you have to do instead is change the value in the editing control (remembering not to cancel the event).
For example, for a Your response was great and saved me lots of time.
Is there a way to change the dgv cell Style Format and cell Tag from within the Cell Validating event?
I've tried a few things and have searched for answers without luck so far.
