Make DataGridView TextBox Cell A ComboBox Cell When It Has Focus

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 belowPlus, 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)

VS 2008 Set Focus (new Currrent Cell) Setting Focus On Specific Cell In My Datagridview1
I am having problem setting focus on specific cell in my Datagridview1 . On Form1 when clicking on cell 3 in any row, I am callig a Dialog1. However, when done working with it, and closing the Dialog1, the focus returns to cell 3 in my Datagridview1 . I like to set the focus on the next cell(4) making it the current cell.

I have tryed :

DataGridView1.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.CellSelect
DataGridView1.CurrentCell = DataGridView1.Item(4, e.RowIndex)

DataGridView1.CurrentCell = DataGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells(4)

And few other things, I am always getting this exception: Operation is not valid because it results in a reentrant call to the SetCurrentCellAddressCore function.

IDE :: Force The Cell Value To Be Blank And Focus Back On That Particular Cell And Try Again?
Datagridview . in cell validated handler and I have the column,row for the cell that I just checked on. If the cell contents are bad, I want to force the cell value to be blank and focus back on that particular cell and try again.The code i've tried simply moves to the next cell in the grid instead of staying where I want it to be. Surely there is a command to focus and put the 'cursor' back in a particular cell.Some sample code I'm working with:

"Invalid Job#, Correct or DIE!")
JLgrid.Item(0, Row).Value =

DataGridView - Focus On Cell That Was Right Clicked
I have a datagridview that I have put a ContextMenuStrip1 on. I would like it to remove a row in the datagridview when the row is right clicked on and they click on "delete row". I have the delete working and the menu is showing up but this isn't firing when you right click on the datagridview.

This is where I am setting the row to edit:
Private Sub ModifyRowToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ModifyRowToolStripMenuItem.Click
If Not datagridview_TagAssignment.CurrentRow Is Nothing Then
[Code] .....

I am always ending up on row(0) and never the row I right clicked on.
Private Sub datagridview_TagAssignment_CellMouseClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs) Handles datagridview_TagAssignment.CellMouseClick
If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right AndAlso e.RowIndex >= 0 Then
datagridview_TagAssignment.Rows(e.RowIndex).Selected = True
End If
End Sub

Setting Focus In A DataGridView's Cell?
I am trying to set the focus in a datagridview's cell after the user enters some data and tries to tab out of the cell. I can't seem to get the focus in the cell they just edited. I can change the background color, but the focus goes to the next field in the grid. I am trying to do this in the _CellValidating event. Here is my code :

Private Sub dgvFish_CellValidating(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellValidatingEventArgs) Handles dgvFish.CellValidating


The function CheckSampleNumber() takes the value of the cell just entered, and checks to see if it has been entered either in the current grid, OR in the database.

Setting The Focus To A Particular Cell In Datagridview?
I am having trouble setting the focus to a particular cell in datagridview.

I have a timetable and on initialisation of the program, it compares the time in the datagridview with the current time. If the time has passed, the row is displayed in grey, if not then it is shown in black. I then want to scroll through the datagridview to focus on the first black line.

Here is the

Private Sub DataGridView1_CellFormatting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellFormatting


"An unhandled exception of type 'System.StackOverflowException' occurred in mscorlib.dll" with the note about infinite recursion.

What have I done wrong and how do I scroll through to automatically set the focus?

VS 2008 Datagridview, Fill One Cell Set Focus To Another?
I have a bound DataGridView where the user should enter an item number in one cell, the name of this item will be displayed in the next cell, and depending upon variables of this item number, the focus should be set to the correct cell on the same row.

My problem is that I can not seem to get the focus to the correct cell.

My code so far. I am having problems with the marked line:

DataGridView Cell Borders - Bottom Border Of The Cell Disappears?
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.

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

Custom Control And Datagridview ComboBox Cell Back Color
I have added a custom Control to my project, but every time I edit it and rebuild the form that I use the custom control in adds the project name in front of the control and won't compile. i.e. Project name = MyProject, Custom Control name = MyControl. When I rebuild the project after editing my control I get an error, MyProject.MyControl doesn't exist. If I remove the MyProject from the line it compiles and runs fine until next time I edit the custom control.

I can't figure out what I would be doing wrong to cause this, or why it is putting the project name in front of the control, but then not accepting it. I am also struggling figuring out how to change the back color on an individual cell in an Datagridview Combo Box. The style.backcolor property of the cell doesn't seem to do anything.
