In DataGridView, Moving From One Cell To Other Cell?

Mar 2, 2009

I have a datagridview and it has 8 columns as textboxcolumns. I am handling their cell validation with cellValidating event. My question is that if cell validation fails for 3rd column of the datagridview then the focus should move from 3rd column to 1st column of the datagridview. How can i do this?I have tried datagridview.column(0).selected = true, when validation for 3rd column fails, but this is not working. Focus still moves to the next cell. I can stop the focus to the current cell with e.cancel=true but i want it to move to the very first cell of the datagridview.

Prevent Moving To An New Cell In Datagrid If The Current Cell Is Empty

Aug 2, 2011

I have a datagrid that will be accepting data from an external measuring device via the serial port. The grid is also open to editing records as well. Part of the process of making this grid user friendly is to intercept the "enter" key and move to the next cell until there is a value in the cell. This is only for some cells, other cells can be blank. I have worked out how to intercept the "enter" key from another post on this forum. Here is the code:

Moving To The Next Cell Down In The Datagridview Control?

Dec 8, 2009

I have a datagrid control on my form that receives data from a device on the COM port. I strip out the data I need and put it into the currently selected cell. When I load the grid, I find the first empty cell and set the focus so each load presents the user with an empty cell to start receiving data. Once I get the measurement, I need to move to the next cell down (like hitting enter in the grid). This will allow the user to do measurements with the external device without having to move to the next cell.

Prevent Moving From A Cell In Datagridview That Has No Data?

Aug 3, 2011

I am updating my last post so hopefully someone will help. I have following code that will move a cell to the next column when hitting the enter key while doing an edit. It will even check the row at the last cell to validate data is present.

However, if there is no data in a cell and I press enter, the focus moves to the next line like it normally does. I need to prevent the user from moving or clicking on any cell until the cell they are on has data in it. Here is the coe I have used[code]...

DataGridView Cell Borders - Bottom Border Of The Cell Disappears?

Dec 23, 2011

Have this code so that when a checkbox in a column of my datagridview is checked, then the corresponding cell in column 2 (of the same row the check box is in) will turn blue with font color white.


I'd also like to add a line so that as well as the cell going blue, the bottom border of the cell disappears, so cellborderstyle = none.

Make DataGridView TextBox Cell A ComboBox Cell When It Has Focus

Dec 23, 2011

I have a DataGridView with several columns. One column is a TextBox column named "Status". This column can only show one of three values: 'Final', 'Ready', or 'No Reportable'. I want to have some code that would turn the TextBox cell into a ComboBox cell when the user left-clicks on the cell to allow the user to choose one of these three options. When the user clicks elsewhere or the cell loses focus I want the cell to change back to a TextBox cell.

Here is what I have so far, but the code throws an exception indicated below Plus, I don't think the code would remove the combobox when the cell loses focus.

Exception: "Provided cell does not belong to this DataGridView control."

Private Sub dgvCalculatedResults_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles dgvCalculatedResults.MouseDown
Dim ht As DataGridView.HitTestInfo = Me.dgvCalculatedResults.HitTest(e.X, e.Y)

DataGridView Image Cell Losses Resolution If Cell Size Is Smaller Than The Image Size?

Apr 30, 2012

I have just found that if a DataGridView image column's size (height & width - in pixels) is smaller than the image's original size (in my case all images are exactly 180 x 180 pixels) at the time the cell is populated then the image is automatically being converted to a lower resolution I assume to fit the image completely within the size of the cell). How can I stop the automatic scaling of the image?

The image below show the same file displayed twice, both at 60x60 pixels ('Thumbnail' column) and a blowup of the image (PictureBox populated via the CellMouseEnter event) to it's right. You'll notice the resolution of the first blowup is far less the the second. so, what made the difference in the resolution of the blowups is? In the second blowup's case I'd first stretched the image column's width to ~180 pixels and set the row height to match (via the ColumnWidthChanged event) then populated the DataGridView then stretched the image column to 60 pixels (its minimum).

Datagrid New Row Cell Validation - Validate Empty Text And Indicate Error On Cell?

Jun 1, 2010

The problem is that if you never enter anything into a cell for a new row then that cell is never validated. This is a problem because I have columns that should not be null. I am doing the check in the row level validation and storing the information about which cells are empty that should not be empty. The row level validation works fine and the row level validation error indicator goes on,(red exclamation mark at the beginning of the row) but I also need a visual indicator on the individual cells that are in error.

I am thinking that setting the HasError property for the cells that are in error should cause them to display n error style (the default red border). Is there a way to this this either from XAML (perferably) or from code?Alternatively I could cause those cells to re-validate when the row editing is finished. Does anyone know how to do this?

C# - -copy A Formatted Cell In Excel To A Table Cell In Word Using .NET?

Apr 20, 2010

I'm attempting to copy cells, one at a time, from an Excel 2003 (or 2007) spreadsheet to a Word 2003 (or 2007) table. I'd like the code to be version-agnostic, and so am using late binding. The formatting of the contents of the Excel cell, such as color, underline, strike-through, needs to be preserved. My approach is to use a Word doc as a template. It has a table at the top which I can copy to the end of the doc, add rows as needed, and fill in the word table cells with the data from the excel spreadsheet. Unfortunately, all the formatting disappears. All I get is the text itself.

Select A Record (A Cell) In The Column 'Dog And Have The Text Of That Cell Appear In A Textbox?

Jan 4, 2011

I'm using something call ultragrid in my program.The program works as a mini-record keeping area (Like any datagrid, really). Well, I am adding a history to it and it allows the user to see the last 50 records searched. They get a grid showing the records. This, thus far, works perfectly What I want to do is this: I want to select a record (A cell) in the column 'Dog and have the text of that cell appear in a textbox. This is what I've tried with no success.

Private Sub HistoryTextBox_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles HistoryTextBox.TextChanged
If ugHistoryButton.ActiveRow.Cells("Dog").Selected = True Then


It just doesn't seem to want to transfer over when I select the cell in the 'Dog' column.

Test Certain Cell Values To See If They Contain Subtrings Of A Certain Format At The END Of The Cell Sting Value?

Feb 9, 2009

I am trying to test certain cell values to see if they contain subtrings of a certain format at the END of the cell sting value.E.G.I have cells with the values...



I want to run a macro that searches through the cells and tests to see if they have a substring sitting at the end of the value that is in the format "-Q[number]-[number][number]" OR "-[3 LETTER MONTH ABBREVIATION][number]-[number][number]" OR "-[3 LETTER MONTH ABBREVIATION][number][number]-[number][number]"and then if the test is true, the cell color is changed to RED.So if I ran the macro on the example I gave above, it would turn the cells with the following values red:


I can do all the VB side of things but I don't know Regex but know it would help. I'm in a bit of a rush to finish this job for work because I finish working here in 2 days and need to get it done before I leave!

VS 2005 Current Cell Cannot Be Set To An Invisible Cell

Nov 16, 2009

So I've got 2 unbound datagridviews, and am providing a push/pull interface where the user can move records from one to the other.

Grid A is read-only and the selectionmode is set to FullRowSelect. Grid B has a read-only DataGridViewTextBoxCell, an editable DataGridViewComboBoxCell, and an editable DataGridViewComboBoxCell.

Because the grids have different columns, but represent the same records, my notion was to create the datagridviews with the same column structure but hiding certain columns, and then just move the DataGridViewRows back and forth between the two, which seams to work.

The problem is that if I go into column 2 or 3 in grid B, I get "Current cell cannot be set to an invisible cell".

I can select cells in column A and I'm fine. It should be noted that on grid B the hidden columns are 4-7.

I know there's a problem when the CurrentCell attribute is set to a hidden cell, but I'm clicking visible cells. I inserted a breakpoint on the CellClick event of the DGV, and again for column 1 that works fine, but on columns 2 and 3 it looks like the error is occuring before the event even gets fired.

Is something in the background setting CurrentCell to one of the hidden cells before firing the event?
