Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  System.Windows.Controls.Data (in System.Windows.Controls.Data.dll)


Public Function CommitEdit As Boolean
public bool CommitEdit()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the edit was commit successfully; otherwise, false.


Calling CommitEdit is equivalent to calling CommitEdit with an editingUnit value of Row and an exitEditingMode value of true.

By default, you can edit items directly in the DataGrid. A cell-level edit is committed when you move to another cell in the same row. All edits in a row are committed when you press ENTER or move to another row. To guarantee that edits can be committed and canceled correctly, the objects in the DataGrid must implement the IEditableObject interface. Alternatively, you can set the IsReadOnly property to true to disable editing in the DataGrid.
