Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ErrorText property in a DataError event handler. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewComboBoxColumn class overview.

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

Use this property to provide an error message for row-level errors. The specified message is displayed in a ToolTip when the user moves the mouse pointer over the error icon shown in the row header.

Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5.2, the error icon is resized according to the system DPI setting when the app.config file contains the following entry:

<appSettings>  
  <add key="EnableWindowsFormsHighDpiAutoResizing" value="true" />  
</appSettings>  

If this row is associated with a DataGridView control, setting this property will raise the RowErrorTextChanged event.
