Public Event CellBeginEdit As DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler

For more information about handling events, see NIB: Consuming Events.

The following code example illustrates how to handle this event to reflect that the current DataGridViewCell is being edited. In this example, the Text property of the containing Form is set to reflect which cell is being edited. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1, and ensure all events are associated with their event handlers.

Private Sub dataGridView1_CellBeginEdit(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs) _
    Handles DataGridView1.CellBeginEdit

    Dim msg As String = _
        String.Format("Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})", _
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex)
    Me.Text = msg

End Sub

Private Sub dataGridView1_CellEndEdit(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) _
    Handles DataGridView1.CellEndEdit

    Dim msg As String = _
        String.Format("Finished Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})", _
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex)
    Me.Text = msg

End Sub
