Property Value

The row index of the cell that is being formatted.

Use the RowIndex property to obtain an index into the Rows property of a DataGridView.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the RowIndex property to retrieve the cell being formatted. The cell reference is then used to set the cell's ToolTip text.

// Sets the ToolTip text for cells in the Rating column. 
void dataGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, 
    DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    if ( (e.ColumnIndex == this.dataGridView1.Columns["Rating"].Index)
        && e.Value != null )
    {
        DataGridViewCell cell = 
            this.dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex];
        if (e.Value.Equals("*"))
        {                
            cell.ToolTipText = "very bad";
        }
        else if (e.Value.Equals("**"))
        {
            cell.ToolTipText = "bad";
        }
        else if (e.Value.Equals("***"))
        {
            cell.ToolTipText = "good";
        }
        else if (e.Value.Equals("****"))
        {
            cell.ToolTipText = "very good";
        }
    }
}
