DataGridView.CellValueChanged Event

Occurs when the value of a cell changes.

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

member CellValueChanged : IEvent<DataGridViewCellEventHandler,
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs>

The DataGridView.CellValueChanged event occurs when the user-specified value is committed, which typically occurs when focus leaves the cell.

In the case of check box cells, however, you will typically want to handle the change immediately. To commit the change when the cell is clicked, you must handle the DataGridView.CurrentCellDirtyStateChanged event. In the handler, if the current cell is a check box cell, call the DataGridView.CommitEdit method and pass in the Commit value.

Rows in the control are not automatically sorted when a cell value is changed. To sort the control when the user modifies a cell, call the Sort method in a CellValueChanged event handler.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CellValueChanged event to update the values in a balance column of a DataGridView. This example is part of a larger example available in the SelectionChanged event.
