DataGrid.CommitEdit Method (DataGridEditingUnit, Boolean)

Causes the data grid to commit the current edit to the data source, and optionally exit editing mode.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  System.Windows.Controls.Data (in System.Windows.Controls.Data.dll)

public bool CommitEdit(
	DataGridEditingUnit editingUnit,
	bool exitEditingMode


Type: System.Windows.Controls.DataGridEditingUnit
Specifies whether to commit the edit for a Row or Cell.
Type: System.Boolean
true to exit editing mode; otherwise, false.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the operation was successful; otherwise, false.

By default, you can edit items directly in the DataGrid. A cell-level edit is committed when you move to another cell in the same row. All edits in a row are committed when you press ENTER or move to another row. To guarantee that edits can be committed and canceled correctly, the objects in the DataGrid must implement the IEditableObject interface. Alternatively, you can set the IsReadOnly property to true to disable editing in the DataGrid.
