DataGridViewCell.KeyDownUnsharesRow Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Indicates whether the parent row is unshared if the user presses a key while the focus is on the cell.

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

protected virtual bool KeyDownUnsharesRow (
	KeyEventArgs e,
	int rowIndex
protected boolean KeyDownUnsharesRow (
	KeyEventArgs e, 
	int rowIndex
protected function KeyDownUnsharesRow (
	e : KeyEventArgs, 
	rowIndex : int
) : boolean



A KeyEventArgs that contains the event data.


The index of the cell's parent row.

Return Value

true if the row will be unshared, otherwise, false. The base DataGridViewCell class always returns false.

The KeyDownUnsharesRow method is called just before the OnKeyDown method. It must return true if the call to OnKeyDown with the same KeyEventArgs argument has the effect of unsharing the row containing the cell. Otherwise, it should return false.
