DataGridViewComboBoxCell.FormattedValueType Property

Gets the class type of the formatted value associated with the cell.

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

public override Type FormattedValueType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type
The type of the cell's formatted value. This property always returns String.

Because a combo box only handles text information, the type of the underlying formatted value is always String.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataGridViewCell.FormattedValueType property to determine the type of the cell contents. In this example, the DataGridViewCell.FormattedValueType property is used to determine whether the cell contains a String before attempting to convert the value. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridView.SelectionChanged event.


private void UpdateLabelText()
{
    int WithdrawalTotal = 0;
    int DepositTotal = 0;
    int SelectedCellTotal = 0;
    int counter;

    // Iterate through all the rows and sum up the appropriate columns.
    for (counter = 0; counter < (DataGridView1.Rows.Count);
        counter++)
    {
        if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter].Cells["Withdrawals"].Value
            != null)
        {
            if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter].
                Cells["Withdrawals"].Value.ToString().Length != 0)
            {
                WithdrawalTotal += int.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows[counter].
                    Cells["Withdrawals"].Value.ToString());
            }
        }

        if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter].Cells["Deposits"].Value != null)
        {
            if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter]
                .Cells["Deposits"].Value.ToString().Length != 0)
            {
                DepositTotal += int.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows[counter]
                    .Cells["Deposits"].Value.ToString());
            }
        }
    }

    // Iterate through the SelectedCells collection and sum up the values.
    for (counter = 0;
        counter < (DataGridView1.SelectedCells.Count); counter++)
    {
        if (DataGridView1.SelectedCells[counter].FormattedValueType ==
            Type.GetType("System.String"))
        {
            string value = null;

            // If the cell contains a value that has not been commited,
            // use the modified value.
            if (DataGridView1.IsCurrentCellDirty == true)
            {

                value = DataGridView1.SelectedCells[counter]
                    .EditedFormattedValue.ToString();
            }
            else
            {
                value = DataGridView1.SelectedCells[counter]
                    .FormattedValue.ToString();
            }
            if (value != null)
            {
                // Ignore cells in the Description column.
                if (DataGridView1.SelectedCells[counter].ColumnIndex !=
                    DataGridView1.Columns["Description"].Index)
                {
                    if (value.Length != 0)
                    {
                        SelectedCellTotal += int.Parse(value);
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }

    // Set the labels to reflect the current state of the DataGridView.
    Label1.Text = "Withdrawals Total: " + WithdrawalTotal.ToString();
    Label2.Text = "Deposits Total: " + DepositTotal.ToString();
    Label3.Text = "Selected Cells Total: " + SelectedCellTotal.ToString();
    Label4.Text = "Total entries: " + DataGridView1.RowCount.ToString();
