DataGridView.RowsRemoved Event

Occurs when a row or rows are deleted from the DataGridView.

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

Public Event RowsRemoved As DataGridViewRowsRemovedEventHandler
Dim instance As DataGridView 
Dim handler As DataGridViewRowsRemovedEventHandler 

AddHandler instance.RowsRemoved, handler

When rows are deleted from a DataGridView control, the index numbers of subsequent rows are lowered to compensate.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use this 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.

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

    ' Update the balance column whenever the values of any cell changes.
End Sub 

Private Sub RowsRemoved(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewRowsRemovedEventArgs) _
    Handles DataGridView1.RowsRemoved

    ' Update the balance column whenever rows are deleted.
End Sub 

Private Sub UpdateBalance()
    Dim counter As Integer 
    Dim balance As Integer 
    Dim deposit As Integer 
    Dim withdrawal As Integer 

    ' Iterate through the rows, skipping the Starting Balance Row. 
    For counter = 1 To (DataGridView1.Rows.Count - 2)
        deposit = 0
        withdrawal = 0
        balance = Integer.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows(counter - 1) _

        If Not DataGridView1.Rows(counter) _
            .Cells("Deposits").Value Is Nothing Then 

            ' Verify that the cell value is not an empty string. 
            If Not DataGridView1.Rows(counter) _
                .Cells("Deposits").Value.ToString().Length = 0 Then
                deposit = Integer.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows(counter) _
            End If 
        End If 

        If Not DataGridView1.Rows(counter) _
            .Cells("Withdrawals").Value Is Nothing Then 
            If Not DataGridView1.Rows(counter) _
                .Cells("Withdrawals").Value.ToString().Length = 0 Then
                withdrawal = Integer.Parse(DataGridView1.Rows(counter) _
            End If 
        End If

        DataGridView1.Rows(counter).Cells("Balance").Value = _
            (balance + deposit + withdrawal).ToString()
End Sub
