You don't have to use an event for that, when you create the datagrid you can add extra columns

here is a nice example from MSDN

Private Sub CalcColumns()
     Dim cPrice As DataColumn
     Dim cTax As DataColumn
     Dim cTotal As DataColumn
     Dim rate As Single
     rate = .0862
     dim t as DataTable = New DataTable
 
     ' Create the first column.
     cPrice = New DataColumn
     With cPrice
         .DataType = System.Type.GetType("System.Decimal")
         .ColumnName = "price"
         .DefaultValue = 50
     End With
     
     ' Create the second, calculated, column.
     cTax = New DataColumn
     With cTax
         .DataType = System.Type.GetType("System.Decimal")
         .ColumnName = "tax"
         .Expression = "price * 0.0862"
     End With
     
    ' Create third column
     cTotal = New DataColumn
     With cTotal
         .DataType = System.Type.GetType("System.Decimal")
         .ColumnName = "total"
         .Expression = "price + tax"
     End With
 
     ' Add columns to DataTable
     With t.Columns
         .Add(cPrice)
         .Add(cTax)
         .Add(cTotal)
     End With
   
     Dim r As DataRow
     r = t.NewRow
     t.Rows.Add(r)
     Dim dView As New DataView
     dView.Table = t
     DataGrid1.DataSource = dView
 End Sub

sir,
     In the previous example all values are assigned. But I want to give value  at run time and  do the calculation using these values.

I assign the values in the datagrid.


 Dim i, j, n As Integer
        n = Dg.VisibleRowCount()
        n = n - 2
        For i = 0 To n
        Dg(i, 5) = (Val(Dg(i, 2)) * (Val(Dg(i, 3)))) + (Val(Dg(i,4)))
        Next

I write this code inside the click event of a button.Using this code, I got the answer by clicking the button.But it is not display automatically in the amt field.

You can use the example a gave above this will automatically display amt

yourds.tables("yourtable").columns.add("AMT",gettype(single),"no * (qty + rate)")
yourdatagrid.datasource =  yourds.tables("yourtable")

put this in the load event of your form

sir,
             My question is  that, how I could display the value automatically (when focus comes to the amt field , this field is already created in the design time) in the amt field .
ie, amt=(qty*rate)+tax .

I really don't understand your question, my example shows the value automatically, even if you add new rows during runtime it will automatically calculate amt

Ok, I'll try again
I assume your dataset is named DS and your datatable (DT)  looks like this :
No, QTY, Rate, Tax and that you want to calculate AMT automatically

form_LOAD event:

DS.tables("DT").columns.add("AMT",gettype(single),"(qty * rate) + Tax")
datagrid1.datasource =  ds.tables("DT")

sir,
   My project is windows application.

My next  problem is that when data is inserted through datagrid to database only two rows are inserted other rows are avoided due some unknown reasons. My code is enclosed below.


Private Sub SvBn_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SvBn.Click
        Dim con As New SqlConnection("server=PROJECTJ22;uid=sa;pwd=hello;database=Purchase")
        Dim a ,n As Integer
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()
        Dim cmd1 As New SqlCommand()
        cmd.Connection = con
        cmd1.Connection = con
        con.Open()
        n = Dg.VisibleRowCount()  'dg is datagrid name
               n = n - 1
        For a = 0 To n
            cmd.CommandText = "Insert into purtran values(" & PurIdTb.Text & " ," & Dg(a, 1) & "," & Dg(a, 2) & "," & Dg(a, 3) & "," & Dg(a, 4) & "," & Dg(a, 5) & "  ) "
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        Next
        cmd1.CommandText = "Insert into Purse values( " & InNoTb.Text & "," & PurIdTb.Text & "," & SupIdTb.Text & ",'" & DtpTb.Text & "') "
        cmd1.ExecuteNonQuery()
        con.Close()
End sub

Hi,
in n = Dg.VisibleRowCount()  'dg is datagrid name
VisibleRowCount()  will only return the number of rows visible and not the full row count.
