Exception typeCondition


When entering edit mode, the EditType property of the current cell does not indicate a class that derives from Control and implements IDataGridViewEditingControl.

The EditModeChanged event is raised whenever the EditMode property changes.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnEditModeChanged method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors When overriding OnEditModeChanged in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s OnEditModeChanged method so that registered delegates receive the event.
