IDataGridEditingService.BeginEdit(DataGridColumnStyle, Int32)

The BeginEdit method is intended to notify the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control when the user has begun an editing operation. When the control is in edit mode, multiple edits can be made and the constraints will be temporarily unenforced.

Call the EndEdit method to quit the edit mode.

The following code example calls the BeginEdit method on the current DataGridTableStyle in a System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control.

private void EditTable(){
   DataGridTableStyle dgt= myDataGrid.TableStyles[0];
   DataGridColumnStyle myCol = dgt.GridColumnStyles[0]; 

   dgt.EndEdit(myCol, 1, true);
