DataGridViewEditMode Enumeration

Specifies how a user starts cell editing in the DataGridView control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public enum DataGridViewEditMode
Member nameDescription
EditOnEnterEditing begins when the cell receives focus. This mode is useful when pressing the TAB key to enter values across a row, or when pressing the ENTER key to enter values down a column.
EditOnF2Editing begins when F2 is pressed while the cell has focus. This mode places the selection point at the end of the cell contents.
EditOnKeystrokeEditing begins when any alphanumeric key is pressed while the cell has focus.
EditOnKeystrokeOrF2Editing begins when any alphanumeric key or F2 is pressed while the cell has focus.
EditProgrammaticallyEditing begins only when the BeginEdit method is called.

This enumeration is used by the EditMode property of the DataGridView control.

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

The following code example illustrates the use of this type. For more information, see How to: Specify the Edit Mode for the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

this.dataGridView1.EditMode = DataGridViewEditMode.EditOnEnter;
