Raises the PreparingCellForEdit event.

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

public protected:
virtual void OnPreparingCellForEdit(
	DataGridPreparingCellForEditEventArgs^ e


Type: System.Windows.Controls::DataGridPreparingCellForEditEventArgs^

The data for the event.

This method enables derived classes to modify the contents of the cell before it enters edit mode. This method is invoked from DataGridCell (instead of DataGrid) when it has entered edit mode.

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

The OnPreparingCellForEdit 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 OnPreparingCellForEdit in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s OnPreparingCellForEdit method so that registered delegates receive the event.
