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.

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);
}
