DataGridView.DataError Event

Definition

Occurs when an external data-parsing or validation operation throws an exception, or when an attempt to commit data to a data source fails.

public:
 event System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewDataErrorEventHandler ^ DataError;
public event System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewDataErrorEventHandler DataError;
member this.DataError : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewDataErrorEventHandler 
Public Custom Event DataError As DataGridViewDataErrorEventHandler 

Examples

The following code example demonstrates a DataError event handler. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewComboBoxColumn class overview topic.

private:
    void DataGridView1_DataError(Object^ sender, DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs^ anError)
    {

        MessageBox::Show("Error happened " + anError->Context.ToString());

        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::Commit)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("Commit error");
        }
        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::CurrentCellChange)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("Cell change");
        }
        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::Parsing)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("parsing error");
        }
        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::LeaveControl)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("leave control error");
        }

        if (dynamic_cast<ConstraintException^>(anError->Exception) != nullptr)
        {
            DataGridView^ view = (DataGridView^)sender;
            view->Rows[anError->RowIndex]->ErrorText = "an error";
            view->Rows[anError->RowIndex]->Cells[anError->ColumnIndex]->ErrorText = "an error";

            anError->ThrowException = false;
        }
    }
private void DataGridView1_DataError(object sender, DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs anError)
{

    MessageBox.Show("Error happened " + anError.Context.ToString());

    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Commit)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("Commit error");
    }
    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.CurrentCellChange)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("Cell change");
    }
    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Parsing)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("parsing error");
    }
    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.LeaveControl)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("leave control error");
    }

    if ((anError.Exception) is ConstraintException)
    {
        DataGridView view = (DataGridView)sender;
        view.Rows[anError.RowIndex].ErrorText = "an error";
        view.Rows[anError.RowIndex].Cells[anError.ColumnIndex].ErrorText = "an error";

        anError.ThrowException = false;
    }
}
Private Sub DataGridView1_DataError(ByVal sender As Object, _
ByVal e As DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs) _
Handles DataGridView1.DataError

    MessageBox.Show("Error happened " _
        & e.Context.ToString())

    If (e.Context = DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Commit) _
        Then
        MessageBox.Show("Commit error")
    End If
    If (e.Context = DataGridViewDataErrorContexts _
        .CurrentCellChange) Then
        MessageBox.Show("Cell change")
    End If
    If (e.Context = DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Parsing) _
        Then
        MessageBox.Show("parsing error")
    End If
    If (e.Context = _
        DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.LeaveControl) Then
        MessageBox.Show("leave control error")
    End If

    If (TypeOf (e.Exception) Is ConstraintException) Then
        Dim view As DataGridView = CType(sender, DataGridView)
        view.Rows(e.RowIndex).ErrorText = "an error"
        view.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(e.ColumnIndex) _
            .ErrorText = "an error"

        e.ThrowException = False
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

The DataError event enables you to handle exceptions thrown in code that is called by the control during data processing operations.

For more information about how to handle events, see Handling and Raising Events.

Note

The ColumnIndex and RowIndex properties of the DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs object associated with this event normally indicate the cell in which the data error occurred. When the error occurs in an external data source, however, the data source may not provide the column in which the error occurred. In this case, the ColumnIndex property typically indicates the column of the current cell at the time of the error.
