Grid View Cell Edit

I have added some code to the CellEndEdit event of a Data Grid View. If I modify the value of a cell in the grid view and click on the next line, the code updates the remote database correctly. However, if I modify the value of a cell in the grid view and move to the next cell of the same row, although the CellEndEdit is triggered, the data is not modified in the remote database, and the datasource's HasChanges value is still False.

How can I fix it, so when I change the value of a cell, the dataset and the remote database get updated?

A DataGridView updates its own version of any row/record as soon as the edit on any of its cells is ended.  But a changed row/record is only passed back to the datasource datatable when the edit on the row is ended.  This (as you have seen) happens automatically if the user changes to a different row.  Otherwise, you have to make it happen by calling .EndEdit on the DataGridView's .BindingSource, if it has one, or .EndCurrentEdit on the binding manager of its .DataSource.  Is that enough for you to work out what extra code you need?  If not, can you please post the code by which you bind your datatable to your datagridview?

Roger,
My DGV is not using a DataSource, but a DataSet is manually connected to it in my code. Here is the code of the function which is supposed to handle DGV changes:

    Private Sub dgvTeachers_CellEndEdit(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles dgvTeachers.CellEndEdit
        If dsTeachers.HasChanges Then MsgBox("A")
        frmMain.connWorkshop.Open()
        Dim strSQL As String = "select ID, FName ,LName from tblTeachers"
        Dim daTeachers As New SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, frmMain.connWorkshop)
        daTeachers.TableMappings.Add("Table", "tblTeachers")
        Dim command_builder As New SqlCommandBuilder(daTeachers)
        daTeachers.ContinueUpdateOnError = False
        daTeachers.Update(dsTeachers)
        frmMain.connWorkshop.Close()
        Me.RefreshForm()
    End Sub

Please make the changes and post it back.

What I want to know is what is the code that does that "manual" connection.  I imagine it will be something like

    dgvTeachers.DataSource = dsTeachers.Tables("tblTeachers")

but, ideally, the code we need for committing a newly edited row from the dgv back to the datatable ought to use the same syntax.  That's why I'd like to see the actual code you use to create the link.

Here you go:

        frmMain.connWorkshop.Open()
        Dim strSQL As String = "select ID, FName ,LName from tblTeachers"
        Dim daTeachers As New SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, frmMain.connWorkshop)
        daTeachers.TableMappings.Add("Table", "tblTeachers")
        dsTeachers.Reset()
        daTeachers.Fill(dsTeachers)
        With dgvTeachers
            .DataSource = dsTeachers.Tables("tblTeachers")
            .Columns(0).ReadOnly = True
            .Columns(0).HeaderText = ""
            .Columns(0).Width = 30
            .Columns(1).HeaderText = "Name"
            .Columns(2).HeaderText = "Surname"
            .Refresh()
        End With
        frmMain.connWorkshop.Close()

Put this as the first line of your sub dgvTeachers_CellEndEdit

   BindingContext(dsTeachers.Tables("tblTeachers")).EndCurrentEdit
