DataRepeater.AllowUserToAddItems Property

Gets or sets a value that determines whether users can add a new row to a DataRepeater at run time.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)

public bool AllowUserToAddItems { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the user can add rows; otherwise false. The default is true.

When the AllowUserToAddItems property is set to True, users can add a new row by clicking the BindingNavigatorAddNewItem ToolStripButton on the BindingNavigator control, or by pressing CTRL+N when a DataRepeaterItem has focus.

When the AllowUserToAddItems property is set to False, the CTRL+N keyboard function is disabled, but the BindingNavigatorAddNewItem ToolStripButton is still enabled. If you want to prevent users from adding rows, you should also disable or remove the BindingNavigatorAddNewItem ToolStripButton on the BindingNavigator control.

The following code example demonstrates how to disable the Add button when the AllowUserToAddItems property is set to False. It assumes that you have a form that contains a DataRepeater control named DataRepeater1 and a BindingNavigator control named ProductsBindingSource.

private void dataRepeater1_AllowUserToAddItemsChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // If this event occurs during form initialization, exit. 
    if (this.IsHandleCreated == false) { return; }
    // If AllowUserToAddItems is False. 
    if (dataRepeater1.AllowUserToAddItems == false)
    // Disable the Add button.
    {
        bindingNavigatorAddNewItem.Enabled = false;
        // Disable the BindingSource property.
        productsBindingSource.AllowNew = false;
    }
    else
    {
        // Otherwise, enable the Add button.
        bindingNavigatorAddNewItem.Enabled = true;
    }
}
