DataGridView.ProcessRightKey(Keys) DataGridView.ProcessRightKey(Keys) DataGridView.ProcessRightKey(Keys) DataGridView.ProcessRightKey(Keys) Method

Definition

Processes the RIGHT ARROW key.

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

Parameters

keyData
Keys Keys Keys Keys

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

Returns

true if the key was processed; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

The RIGHT ARROW key would cause the control to enter edit mode, but the EditType property of the new current cell does not indicate a class that derives from Control and implements IDataGridViewEditingControl.

This action would commit a cell value or enter edit mode, but an error in the data source prevents the action and either there is no handler for the DataError event or the handler has set the ThrowException property to true.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to change the behavior of the ENTER key in a DataGridView subclass by overriding the ProcessDataGridViewKey and ProcessDialogKey methods. In the example, the ENTER key has the same behavior as the RIGHT ARROW key, making it easier for a user to edit multiple cells in a single row of data.

public class CustomDataGridView : DataGridView
{
    [System.Security.Permissions.UIPermission(
        System.Security.Permissions.SecurityAction.LinkDemand,
        Window = System.Security.Permissions.UIPermissionWindow.AllWindows)]
    protected override bool ProcessDialogKey(Keys keyData)
    {
        // Extract the key code from the key value. 
        Keys key = (keyData & Keys.KeyCode);

        // Handle the ENTER key as if it were a RIGHT ARROW key. 
        if (key == Keys.Enter)
        {
            return this.ProcessRightKey(keyData);
        }
        return base.ProcessDialogKey(keyData);
    }

    [System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission(
        System.Security.Permissions.SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = 
        System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
    protected override bool ProcessDataGridViewKey(KeyEventArgs e)
    {
        // Handle the ENTER key as if it were a RIGHT ARROW key. 
        if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter)
        {
            return this.ProcessRightKey(e.KeyData);
        }
        return base.ProcessDataGridViewKey(e);
    }
}
