DataGridView::EditMode Property

Gets or sets a value indicating how to begin editing a cell.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public:
property DataGridViewEditMode EditMode {
	DataGridViewEditMode get ();
	void set (DataGridViewEditMode value);
}

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms::DataGridViewEditMode
One of the DataGridViewEditMode values. The default is EditOnKeystrokeOrF2.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidEnumArgumentException

The specified value when setting this property is not a valid DataGridViewEditMode value.

Exception

The specified value when setting this property would cause the control to enter edit mode, but initialization of the editing cell value failed and either there is no handler for the DataError event or the handler has set the DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs::ThrowException property to true. The exception object can typically be cast to type FormatException.

All DataGridViewEditMode values except for EditProgrammatically also allow a user to double-click a cell to begin editing it.

The following code example demonstrates how to initialize a simple data-bound DataGridView. It also demonstrates how to set the EditMode property.
