Examples

The following code example uses a DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler delegate to check if valid track and release dates are entered.

private void ValidateByRow(Object sender, 
    DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs data) 
{
    DataGridViewRow row = 
        songsDataGridView.Rows[data.RowIndex];
    DataGridViewCell trackCell = 
        row.Cells[songsDataGridView.Columns["Track"].Index];
    DataGridViewCell dateCell = 
        row.Cells[songsDataGridView.Columns["Release Date"].Index];
    data.Cancel = !(IsTrackGood(trackCell) && IsDateGood(dateCell));
}

private Boolean IsTrackGood(DataGridViewCell cell)
{
    Int32 cellValueAsInt;
    if (cell.Value.ToString().Length == 0)
    {
        cell.ErrorText = "Please enter a track";
        songsDataGridView.Rows[cell.RowIndex].ErrorText = 
            "Please enter a track";
        return false;
    }
    else if (cell.Value.ToString().Equals("0"))
    {
        cell.ErrorText = "Zero is not a valid track";
        songsDataGridView.Rows[cell.RowIndex].ErrorText =
            "Zero is not a valid track";
        return false;
    }
    else if (!Int32.TryParse(cell.Value.ToString(), out cellValueAsInt))
    {
        cell.ErrorText = "A Track must be a number";
        songsDataGridView.Rows[cell.RowIndex].ErrorText =
            "A Track must be a number";
        return false;

Remarks

When you create a DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.
