DataGridViewRowErrorTextNeededEventArgs.ErrorText DataGridViewRowErrorTextNeededEventArgs.ErrorText DataGridViewRowErrorTextNeededEventArgs.ErrorText DataGridViewRowErrorTextNeededEventArgs.ErrorText Property

Definition

Gets or sets the error text for the row.

public:
 property System::String ^ ErrorText { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
public string ErrorText { get; set; }
member this.ErrorText : string with get, set
Public Property ErrorText As String

Property Value

A string that represents the error text for the row.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ErrorText property in an event handler. Although the code actually uses the DataGridViewCellErrorTextNeededEventArgs.ErrorText property, this property is nearly identical to the ErrorText property of DataGridViewRowErrorTextNeededEventArgs.

ToolStripMenuItem^ wholeTable;
ToolStripMenuItem^ lookUp;
System::Windows::Forms::ContextMenuStrip^ strip;
String^ cellErrorText;

void dataGridView1_CellContextMenuStripNeeded( Object^ /*sender*/,
    DataGridViewCellContextMenuStripNeededEventArgs^ e )
{
    cellErrorText = String::Empty;
    if ( strip == nullptr )
    {
        strip = gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ContextMenuStrip;
        lookUp->Text = L"Look Up";
        wholeTable->Text = L"See Whole Table";
        strip->Items->Add( lookUp );
        strip->Items->Add( wholeTable );
    }

    e->ContextMenuStrip = strip;
}

void wholeTable_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{
    dataGridView1->DataSource = Populate( L"Select * from employees", true );
}

DataGridViewCellEventArgs^ theCellImHoveringOver;
void dataGridView1_CellMouseEnter( Object^ /*sender*/, DataGridViewCellEventArgs^ e )
{
    theCellImHoveringOver = e;
}

DataGridViewCellEventArgs^ cellErrorLocation;
void lookUp_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{
    try
    {
        dataGridView1->DataSource = Populate( String::Format( L"Select * from employees where {0} = '{1}'", dataGridView1->Columns[ theCellImHoveringOver->ColumnIndex ]->Name, dataGridView1->Rows[ theCellImHoveringOver->RowIndex ]->Cells[ theCellImHoveringOver->ColumnIndex ]->Value ), true );
    }
    catch ( ... ) 
    {
        cellErrorText = L"Can't look this cell up";
        cellErrorLocation = theCellImHoveringOver;
    }

    }

Remarks

This property initially contains the value of the DataGridViewRow.ErrorText property if it has been set for a row.

The ErrorText property value displays as a ToolTip for the error glyph in the row header.
