VS 2008 Set Focus (new Currrent Cell) Setting Focus On Specific Cell In My Datagridview1

Nov 7, 2009

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.

Setting Focus In A DataGridView's Cell?

Mar 16, 2010

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?

Mar 11, 2009

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?

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)

IDE :: Force The Cell Value To Be Blank And Focus Back On That Particular Cell And Try Again?

Jul 28, 2010

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:

DataGridView - Focus On Cell That Was Right Clicked

Mar 26, 2010

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

PropertyGrid, RefreshPropertiesAttribute Cell Focus?

Aug 18, 2009

Within my PropertyGrid I have decorated a class with the following attributes:

[Category("Category 1"),
DisplayName("Part Number"),
Dim PN1 as String


The problem is that when PN2 is changed in the PropertyGrid, it causes a refresh of all cells. Since both properties have the same DisplayName, but different Categories, the focus is set to PN1 and not PN2 after PN2 is edited.

VS 2008 Setting Focus To An External Textbox?

Mar 26, 2010

Essentially what I would like to do is press a button, this then triggers a code to focus on a certain program, focus on a certain textbox and input the text from the clipboard not via pasting.

Now I have been able to achieve all of the above fairly easily except for one crucial component, focusing on the desired component. This program is essentially to automate some data entering for users via hotkeys, therefore I can't simply simulate tabs as it will not always be in the same position. So now comes the question, how do I focus on specific textboxes/controls in other programs?

I've been able to find huge walls of code with no explanation beyond "this is a concept". However no documentation or relevant examples.

The first has a column for the users Id, Name, and a column called Points.The second has a column for Id and one called Letters.What i want to do is, after the user enters the id number, and the user clicks checkboxA it should add a certain number, lets say 5, to the "points" cell for that id#(in the first database), and it should put the letter "a" in the "letters" column (of the second database) for that id number. Also, if a user deselects a checkbox it should remove the "a" from letters and subtract 5 from points.Also there will be different letters in the "letters" cell, so i cant just clear it, but i have to remove the specific letter.
