Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating how to begin editing a cell.

public:
 property System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewEditMode EditMode { System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewEditMode get(); void set(System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewEditMode value); };
public System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewEditMode EditMode { get; set; }
member this.EditMode : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewEditMode with get, set
Public Property EditMode As DataGridViewEditMode

Property Value

Exceptions

The specified value when setting this property would cause the control to enter edit mode, but initialization of the editing cell value failed and either there is no handler for the DataError event or the handler has set the ThrowException property to true. The exception object can typically be cast to type FormatException.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to initialize a simple data-bound DataGridView. It also demonstrates how to set the EditMode property.
