DataGridView.NewRowNeeded DataGridView.NewRowNeeded DataGridView.NewRowNeeded DataGridView.NewRowNeeded Event

Definition

Occurs when the VirtualMode property of the DataGridView is true and the user navigates to the new row at the bottom of the DataGridView.

public:
 event System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewRowEventHandler ^ NewRowNeeded;
public event System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewRowEventHandler NewRowNeeded;
member this.NewRowNeeded : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewRowEventHandler 
Public Custom Event NewRowNeeded As DataGridViewRowEventHandler 

Examples

The following code example uses the NewRowNeeded event to track when a new row is being added, so logic in the CellValueNeeded event handler can initialize a new row's cell to an initial value. This example is part of a larger example available in the VirtualMode reference topic.

    void VirtualConnector::dataGridView1_NewRowNeeded
        (Object^ sender, DataGridViewRowEventArgs^ e)
    {
        newRowNeeded = true;
    }

    void VirtualConnector::dataGridView1_RowsAdded
        (Object^ sender, DataGridViewRowsAddedEventArgs^ e)
    {
        if (newRowNeeded)
        {
            newRowNeeded = false;
            numberOfRows = numberOfRows + 1;
        }
    }

            e->Value = gcnew Int32(store->default[e->RowIndex]);

        {

Remarks

When the DataGridView is in virtual mode, this event allows a new entry to be created in the data store for the new row, and it also allows for the row to be populated with default values.
