Datagridview cell values disappearing

Posted on 2006-12-01
Last Modified: 2008-02-01

I have 2 datagridviews (dg1 & dg2) bound to a dataset and when they are filled one cell in dg2 is empty.
If I click on another cell in dg2 then that cell is selected and the previously empty cell value appears.
But if I then click a cell in dg1 the clicked and selected cell in dg2 becomes empty.

All help appreciated.

you have to change the colors
when you focus a cell it take difrent color and probably you have set it to white so white strings with white backround  =empty byt the string is there

Thanks for the reply.The cell that has the focus shows the value OK, it is the cell that has lost the focus that appears empty even though there is a value in it.

Hi rockas1982

The cell that has lost focus is white with no value in it.
If I click on another cell in the same grid it stays white but the value appears.

are you assigning the values dg1.item(1,1).value="5"
if you are try using dg1.item(1,1).editedformattedvalue="5"

Hi gangwisch

The grids are bound to a datatable so the values are not manually assigned.
