DataGridView.DataBindingComplete Event

Occurs after a data-binding operation has finished.

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

public event DataGridViewBindingCompleteEventHandler DataBindingComplete

This event is raised when the contents of the data source change or when the value of the DataSource, DataMember, or BindingContext property changes.

Handling this event is useful, for example, to programmatically resize rows and columns based on content updates. For more information, see Sizing Options in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example illustrates the use of this event. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewRowContextMenuStripNeededEventArgs class overview.

private void dataGridView1_DataBindingComplete(object sender,
    DataGridViewBindingCompleteEventArgs e)
{
    // Hide some of the columns.
    dataGridView1.Columns["EmployeeID"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["Address"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["TitleOfCourtesy"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["BirthDate"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["HireDate"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["PostalCode"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["Photo"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["Notes"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["ReportsTo"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["PhotoPath"].Visible = false;

    // Disable sorting for the DataGridView. 
    foreach (DataGridViewColumn i in
        dataGridView1.Columns)
    {
        i.SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable;
    }

    dataGridView1.AutoResizeColumns();
}
