DataGridViewCell.KeyPressUnsharesRow Method

Indicates whether a row will be unshared if a key is pressed while a cell in the row has focus.

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

protected virtual bool KeyPressUnsharesRow(
	KeyPressEventArgs e,
	int rowIndex


Type: System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs
A KeyPressEventArgs that contains the event data.
Type: System.Int32
The index of the cell's parent row.

Return Value

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

The KeyPressUnsharesRow method is called just before the OnKeyPress method. In derived classes, it must return true if the call to OnKeyPress has the effect of unsharing the row containing the cell. Otherwise, it should return false.
