DataGridViewRowStateChangedEventArgs Class


Provides data for the RowStateChanged event of a DataGridView.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms

public class DataGridViewRowStateChangedEventArgs : EventArgs

System_CAPS_pubmethodDataGridViewRowStateChangedEventArgs(DataGridViewRow, DataGridViewElementStates)

Initializes a new instance of the DataGridViewRowStateChangedEventArgs class.


Gets the DataGridViewRow that has a changed state.


Gets the state that has changed on the row.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

Use the Row property to determine which row changed. Use the StateChanged property to determine which row state changed.

For more information about handling events, see NIB: Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this type. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the RowStateChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type DataGridView named DataGridView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the RowStateChanged event.

private void DataGridView1_RowStateChanged(Object sender, DataGridViewRowStateChangedEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Row", e.Row );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "StateChanged", e.StateChanged );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "RowStateChanged Event" );
