DataGridView.ProcessDeleteKey(Keys) Method

Definition

Processes the DELETE key.

protected:
 bool ProcessDeleteKey(System::Windows::Forms::Keys keyData);
protected bool ProcessDeleteKey (System.Windows.Forms.Keys keyData);
member this.ProcessDeleteKey : System.Windows.Forms.Keys -> bool
Protected Function ProcessDeleteKey (keyData As Keys) As Boolean

Parameters

keyData
Keys

A bitwise combination of Keys values that represents the key or keys to process.

Returns

Boolean

true if the key was processed; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

The DELETE key would delete one or more rows, but an error in the data source prevents the deletion and either there is no handler for the DataError event or the handler has set the ThrowException property to true.

Remarks

This method returns true when the user presses DELETE to delete rows in the control. The user can delete rows if the SelectionMode property is set to FullRowSelect or RowHeaderSelect and the MultiSelect property is set to true. If the DataGridView is bound to data, the IBindingList.AllowRemove property of the data source must also be set to true.
