DataGridView.RowsRemoved Event

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

Occurs when a row or rows are deleted from the DataGridView.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in

public event DataGridViewRowsRemovedEventHandler RowsRemoved
/** @event */
public void add_RowsRemoved (DataGridViewRowsRemovedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_RowsRemoved (DataGridViewRowsRemovedEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

When rows are deleted from a DataGridView control, the index numbers of subsequent rows are lowered to compensate.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use this event to update the values in a balance column of a DataGridView.

private void DataGridView1_CellValueChanged(
    object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
    // Update the balance column whenever the value of any cell changes.

private void DataGridView1_RowsRemoved(
    object sender, DataGridViewRowsRemovedEventArgs e)
    // Update the balance column whenever rows are deleted.

private void UpdateBalance()
    int counter;
    int balance;
    int deposit;
    int withdrawal;

    // Iterate through the rows, skipping the Starting Balance row.
    for (counter = 1; counter < (DataGridView1.Rows.Count - 1);
        deposit = 0;
        withdrawal = 0;
        balance = int.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows[counter - 1]

        if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter].Cells["Deposits"].Value != null)
            // Verify that the cell value is not an empty string.
            if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter]
                .Cells["Deposits"].Value.ToString().Length != 0)
                deposit = int.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows[counter]

        if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter].Cells["Withdrawals"].Value != null)
            if (DataGridView1.Rows[counter]
                .Cells["Withdrawals"].Value.ToString().Length != 0)
                withdrawal = int.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows[counter]
        DataGridView1.Rows[counter].Cells["Balance"].Value =
            (balance + deposit + withdrawal).ToString();
