DataGridViewRow.IsNewRow Property

Gets a value indicating whether the row is the row for new records.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public bool IsNewRow { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the row is the last row in the DataGridView, which is used for the entry of a new row of data; otherwise, false.

Because the row for new records is in the Rows collection, use the IsNewRow property to determine whether a row is the row for new records or is a populated row.

A row stops being the new row when data entry into the row begins.

The following code example uses the IsNewRow property to prevent attempts to set the label of the row for new records.


// Set row labels.
private void Button6_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    int rowNumber = 1;
    foreach (DataGridViewRow row in dataGridView.Rows)
    {
        if (row.IsNewRow) continue;
        row.HeaderCell.Value = "Row " + rowNumber;
        rowNumber = rowNumber + 1;
    }
    dataGridView.AutoResizeRowHeadersWidth(
        DataGridViewRowHeadersWidthSizeMode.AutoSizeToAllHeaders);
}
