DataGridView.CellBeginEdit Event

Definition

Occurs when edit mode starts for the selected cell.

public:
 event System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler ^ CellBeginEdit;
public event System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler CellBeginEdit;
member this.CellBeginEdit : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler 
Public Custom Event CellBeginEdit As DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler 

Examples

The following code example illustrates how to handle this event to reflect that the current DataGridViewCell is being edited. In this example, the Text property of the containing Form is set to reflect which cell is being edited. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1, and ensure all events are associated with their event handlers.

private void dataGridView1_CellBeginEdit(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs e)
{
    string msg = String.Format("Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})",
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex);
    this.Text = msg;
}

private void dataGridView1_CellEndEdit(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    string msg = String.Format("Finished Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})",
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex);
    this.Text = msg;
}
Private Sub dataGridView1_CellBeginEdit(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs) _
    Handles DataGridView1.CellBeginEdit

    Dim msg As String = _
        String.Format("Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})", _
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex)
    Me.Text = msg

End Sub

Private Sub dataGridView1_CellEndEdit(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) _
    Handles DataGridView1.CellEndEdit

    Dim msg As String = _
        String.Format("Finished Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})", _
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex)
    Me.Text = msg

End Sub
