ListObject.ErrorAddDataBoundRow Event

 

Occurs when a user tries to add a row to a data-bound ListObject control, but the row cannot be added.

Namespace:   Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.dll)

event ErrorAddDataBoundRowEventHandler ErrorAddDataBoundRow

This event is raised only if the ListObject control is bound to data.

Handle this event to attempt to correct possible errors.

The following code example creates a DataTable and a ListObject, and binds the ListObject to the DataTable. It then creates an ErrorAddDataBoundRow event handler. To test the event, manually add a new row to the ListObject and enter the last name "Chan" and a first name. The event handler displays a message.

This version is for a document-level customization.

private void ListObject_ErrorAddDataBoundRow()
{
    // Create a new DataSet and DataTable.
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    DataTable dt = ds.Tables.Add("Customers");
    DataColumn lastName = new DataColumn("LastName");
    dt.Columns.Add(lastName);
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("FirstName"));

    UniqueConstraint myUC = new UniqueConstraint( "CustConstraint", 
        lastName);
    dt.Constraints.Add(myUC);

    // Add a new row to the DataTable.
    DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
    dr["LastName"] = "Chan";
    dr["FirstName"] = "Gareth";
    dt.Rows.Add(dr);

    // Create a list object.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ListObject list1 = 
        this.Controls.AddListObject(
        this.Range["A1"], "list1");

    // Bind the list object to the DataTable.
    list1.AutoSetDataBoundColumnHeaders = true;
    list1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers", "LastName",
        "FirstName");

    // Create the event handler.
    list1.ErrorAddDataBoundRow += new 
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.
        ErrorAddDataBoundRowEventHandler(list1_ErrorAddDataBoundRow);
}

void list1_ErrorAddDataBoundRow(object sender, 
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ErrorAddDataBoundRowEventArgs e)
{
    MessageBox.Show("Last names must be unique.");
}

This version is for an application-level add-in. To use this code example, add the using System.Data; directive if you are using C# or the Imports System.Data statement if you are using Visual Basic.

private void ListObject_ErrorAddDataBoundRow()
{
    // Create a new DataSet and DataTable.
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    DataTable dt = ds.Tables.Add("Customers");
    DataColumn lastName = new DataColumn("LastName");
    dt.Columns.Add(lastName);
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("FirstName"));

    UniqueConstraint myUC = new UniqueConstraint("CustConstraint",
        lastName);
    dt.Constraints.Add(myUC);

    // Add a new row to the DataTable.
    DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
    dr["LastName"] = "Chan";
    dr["FirstName"] = "Gareth";
    dt.Rows.Add(dr);

    // Create a list object.
    Worksheet vstoWorksheet =
        Globals.Factory.GetVstoObject(this.Application.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets[1]);
    ListObject list1 =
        vstoWorksheet.Controls.AddListObject(
        vstoWorksheet.Range["A1"], "list1");

    // Bind the list object to the DataTable.
    list1.AutoSetDataBoundColumnHeaders = true;
    list1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers", "LastName",
        "FirstName");

    // Create the event handler.
    list1.ErrorAddDataBoundRow += new
        ErrorAddDataBoundRowEventHandler(list1_ErrorAddDataBoundRow);
}

void list1_ErrorAddDataBoundRow(object sender,
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ErrorAddDataBoundRowEventArgs e)
{
    System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Last names must be unique.");
