ListObject.BeforeAddDataBoundRow Event

Occurs just before an attempt to add a new row to a ListObject control that is bound to data.

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

event BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler BeforeAddDataBoundRow

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

This event is raised only when a new row is added through the Microsoft Office Excel user interface. It is not raised when a new row is added programmatically.

Handle this event to perform additional validation, or to cancel addition of a row.

The following code example creates a DataTable and a ListObject, and binds the ListObject to the DataTable. It then creates a BeforeAddDataBoundRow event handler. To test the event, manually add a new row to the ListObject on sheet 1. The event handler removes the row and displays a message.

This version is for a document-level customization.

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

    // 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.BeforeAddDataBoundRow += new 
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.
        BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler(
        list1_BeforeAddDataBoundRow);
}

void list1_BeforeAddDataBoundRow(object sender, 
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
    MessageBox.Show("This data is read-only.");
}

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

    // 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.BeforeAddDataBoundRow += new                
        BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventHandler(
        list1_BeforeAddDataBoundRow);
}

void list1_BeforeAddDataBoundRow(object sender,
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.BeforeAddDataBoundRowEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
    System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("This data is read-only.");
}
