DataGridViewRowCollection.InsertCopy Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

This method supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Inserts a row into the collection at the specified position, based on the row at specified position.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public virtual void InsertCopy (
	int indexSource,
	int indexDestination
)
public void InsertCopy (
	int indexSource, 
	int indexDestination
)
public function InsertCopy (
	indexSource : int, 
	indexDestination : int
)

Parameters

indexSource

The index of the row on which to base the new row.

indexDestination

The position at which to insert the row.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

indexSource is less than zero or greater than the number of rows in the collection minus one.

-or-

indexDestination is less than zero or greater than the number of rows in the collection.

InvalidOperationException

The associated DataGridView control is performing one of the following actions that temporarily prevents new rows from being added:

  • Selecting all cells in the control.

  • Clearing the selection.

-or-

This method is being called from a handler for one of the following DataGridView events:

-or-

indexDestination is equal to the number of rows in the collection and DataGridView.AllowUserToAddRows is true.

-or-

This operation would insert a frozen row after unfrozen rows or an unfrozen row before frozen rows.

This method assigns the new row the index specified in the indexDestination parameter and increments the indexes for all subsequent rows. The InheritedStyle property of the new DataGridViewRow has the same values as the InheritedStyle of the DataGridViewRow positioned at indexSource. The InsertCopy method adds a shared row to the DataGridViewRowCollection, if possible. Otherwise, the new row is unshared. For more information, see Best Practices for Scaling the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

Rows in the control are not automatically sorted when new rows are added. To sort new rows into their correct position, call the System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView.Sort method in a DataGridView.RowsAdded event handler. You might also want to call the System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView.Sort method in a CellValueChanged event handler to sort the rows when the user modifies a cell.
