DataGridViewCellValueEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method that will handle the CellValueNeeded event or CellValuePushed event of a DataGridView.

public delegate void DataGridViewCellValueEventHandler(System::Object ^ sender, DataGridViewCellValueEventArgs ^ e);
public delegate void DataGridViewCellValueEventHandler(object sender, DataGridViewCellValueEventArgs e);
type DataGridViewCellValueEventHandler = delegate of obj * DataGridViewCellValueEventArgs -> unit
Public Delegate Sub DataGridViewCellValueEventHandler(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewCellValueEventArgs)

Parameters

sender
Object

The source of the event.

Inheritance
DataGridViewCellValueEventHandler

Examples

The following code example handles the CellValuePushed event to store updates and new entries in a data store object. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridView.VirtualMode reference topic.

Remarks

Use this delegate to implement virtual mode in the DataGridView control. For more information about virtual mode, see Virtual Mode in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

When you create a DataGridViewCellValueEventHandler 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.
