Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in

public bool ParsingApplied { get; set; }

public void set_ParsingApplied (boolean value)

public function get ParsingApplied () : boolean

public function set ParsingApplied (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the cell's value has been successfully parsed; otherwise, false. The default is false.

A DataGridViewCellParsingEventHandler sets the ParsingApplied property to indicate whether the new cell value was successfully parsed and no further conversion is necessary.

The following code example sets ParsingApplied to true when the cell's value is successfully parsed.

// Handling CellParsing allows one to accept user input, then map it to a different
// internal representation.
private void dataGridView1_CellParsing(object sender, DataGridViewCellParsingEventArgs e)
    if (this.dataGridView1.Columns[e.ColumnIndex].Name == "Release Date")
        if (e != null)
            if (e.Value != null)
                    // Map what the user typed into UTC.
                    e.Value = DateTime.Parse(e.Value.ToString()).ToUniversalTime();
                    // Set the ParsingApplied property to 
                    // Show the event is handled.
                    e.ParsingApplied = true;

                catch (FormatException)
                    // Set to false in case another CellParsing handler
                    // wants to try to parse this DataGridViewCellParsingEventArgs instance.
                    e.ParsingApplied = false;
