DataGridViewSortCompareEventArgs.CellValue2 Property

Gets the value of the second cell to compare.

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

public Object CellValue2 { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The value of the second cell.

This property is typically used in conjunction with the CellValue1 property.

The following code example demonstrates the use of CellValue2 in a multiple column sort. This example is part of a larger example provided in How to: Customize Sorting in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

private void dataGridView1_SortCompare(object sender,
    DataGridViewSortCompareEventArgs e)
{
    // Try to sort based on the cells in the current column.
    e.SortResult = System.String.Compare(
        e.CellValue1.ToString(), e.CellValue2.ToString());

    // If the cells are equal, sort based on the ID column. 
    if (e.SortResult == 0 && e.Column.Name != "ID")
    {
        e.SortResult = System.String.Compare(
            dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex1].Cells["ID"].Value.ToString(),
            dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex2].Cells["ID"].Value.ToString());
    }
    e.Handled = true;
}
