EndCurrentEdit Method

CurrencyManager.EndCurrentEdit Method

Updated: April 2009

Ends the current edit operation.

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

public override void EndCurrentEdit()

This method is supported only if the objects contained by the data source implement the IEditableObject or ICancelAddNew interfaces.


This property was designed to be used by complex data-bound controls, such as the DataGridView control. Unless you are creating a control that requires this same functionality, you should not use this method. Instead, if the data source is either a DataView or DataTable, use the EndEdit method of the DataRowView class.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the EndCurrentEdit method.

private void dataGrid1_KeyUp
(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs e) {
    if(e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter) {
        // Enter key pressed.
        CurrencyManager gridCurrencyManager = 
        [dataGrid1.DataSource, dataGrid1.DataMember];
        MessageBox.Show("End Edit");
