DataGridView.NotifyCurrentCellDirty Method (Boolean)


Notifies the DataGridView that the current cell has uncommitted changes.

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

Public Overridable Sub NotifyCurrentCellDirty (
	dirty As Boolean


Type: System.Boolean

true to indicate the cell has uncommitted changes; otherwise, false.

This method can be used to allow custom cell types to notify the DataGridView when they have uncommitted changes.

The following code example illustrates the use of this method in a custom cell scenario. In the example, an IDataGridViewEditingControl implementation derived from the DateTimePicker class overrides the OnValueChanged method and uses the NotifyCurrentCellDirty method to indicate a change to the DataGridView control.

This example is part of a larger example shown in How to: Host Controls in Windows Forms DataGridView Cells.

Protected Overrides Sub OnValueChanged(ByVal eventargs As EventArgs)

    ' Notify the DataGridView that the contents of the cell have changed.
    valueIsChanged = True

End Sub
