DataGridView.CellLeave Event

Occurs when a cell loses input focus and is no longer the current cell.

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

public event DataGridViewCellEventHandler CellLeave

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example illustrates how to handle this event to change the SelectionBackColor property of the current cell. In this example the selection background color is set in the CellEnter event, then reset to Empty on the CellLeave event. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1 and ensure that all events are associated with their event handlers.

private void dataGridView1_CellEnter(object sender, 
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    dataGridView1[e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex].Style
        .SelectionBackColor = Color.Blue;
}

private void dataGridView1_CellLeave(object sender, 
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    dataGridView1[e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex].Style
        .SelectionBackColor = Color.Empty;
}
