DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs.Context Property

Definition

Gets details about the state of the DataGridView when the error occurred.

public:
 property System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewDataErrorContexts Context { System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewDataErrorContexts get(); };
public System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewDataErrorContexts Context { get; }
member this.Context : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewDataErrorContexts
Public ReadOnly Property Context As DataGridViewDataErrorContexts

Property Value

DataGridViewDataErrorContexts

A bitwise combination of the DataGridViewDataErrorContexts values that specifies the context in which the error occurred.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to investigate the error context. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewComboBoxColumn class overview topic.

private:
    void DataGridView1_DataError(Object^ sender, DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs^ anError)
    {

        MessageBox::Show("Error happened " + anError->Context.ToString());

        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::Commit)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("Commit error");
        }
        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::CurrentCellChange)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("Cell change");
        }
        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::Parsing)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("parsing error");
        }
        if (anError->Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts::LeaveControl)
        {
            MessageBox::Show("leave control error");
        }

        if (dynamic_cast<ConstraintException^>(anError->Exception) != nullptr)
        {
            DataGridView^ view = (DataGridView^)sender;
            view->Rows[anError->RowIndex]->ErrorText = "an error";
            view->Rows[anError->RowIndex]->Cells[anError->ColumnIndex]->ErrorText = "an error";

            anError->ThrowException = false;
        }
    }
private void DataGridView1_DataError(object sender, DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs anError)
{

    MessageBox.Show("Error happened " + anError.Context.ToString());

    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Commit)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("Commit error");
    }
    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.CurrentCellChange)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("Cell change");
    }
    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Parsing)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("parsing error");
    }
    if (anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.LeaveControl)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("leave control error");
    }

    if ((anError.Exception) is ConstraintException)
    {
        DataGridView view = (DataGridView)sender;
        view.Rows[anError.RowIndex].ErrorText = "an error";
        view.Rows[anError.RowIndex].Cells[anError.ColumnIndex].ErrorText = "an error";

        anError.ThrowException = false;
    }
}
Private Sub DataGridView1_DataError(ByVal sender As Object, _
ByVal e As DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs) _
Handles DataGridView1.DataError

    MessageBox.Show("Error happened " _
        & e.Context.ToString())

    If (e.Context = DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Commit) _
        Then
        MessageBox.Show("Commit error")
    End If
    If (e.Context = DataGridViewDataErrorContexts _
        .CurrentCellChange) Then
        MessageBox.Show("Cell change")
    End If
    If (e.Context = DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Parsing) _
        Then
        MessageBox.Show("parsing error")
    End If
    If (e.Context = _
        DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.LeaveControl) Then
        MessageBox.Show("leave control error")
    End If

    If (TypeOf (e.Exception) Is ConstraintException) Then
        Dim view As DataGridView = CType(sender, DataGridView)
        view.Rows(e.RowIndex).ErrorText = "an error"
        view.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(e.ColumnIndex) _
            .ErrorText = "an error"

        e.ThrowException = False
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

Members of the DataGridViewDataErrorContexts enumeration may be combined using the bitwise OR operator to represent the state of a data-bound DataGridView when a data error occurred. For example, if a user enters an invalid cell value (such as entering a name in a cell that requires a date) and then selects a different cell, the DataGridView will try to commit the invalid cell value. When the commit fails, the DataGridView will raise a DataError event whose Context property will have a value of Commit and CurrentCellChange.
