DataGridView.CellBeginEdit Event

Occurs when edit mode starts for the selected cell.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public event DataGridViewCellCancelEventHandler CellBeginEdit

For more information about handling events, see 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 void dataGridView1_CellBeginEdit(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs e)
{
    string msg = String.Format("Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})",
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex);
    this.Text = msg;
}

private void dataGridView1_CellEndEdit(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    string msg = String.Format("Finished Editing Cell at ({0}, {1})",
        e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex);
    this.Text = msg;
}
