If a user leaves a record in a DataGridView and they haven't entered a required field I keep getting system.Data.NoNullAllowedException. ..
I'm trying to catch it with the code below but it doesn't work.  Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks,
Private Sub myDataGridView_RowValidating(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs) Handles myDataGridView.RowValidating
        Try
        Catch ex As NoNullAllowedException
            MessageBox.Show("You left a record without filling in all of the required fields " & ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

Hi! Try this...
        private void Form2_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            FillGridView();
        }
 
        private void FillGridView()
        {
            dataGridView1.Columns.Add("Column1", "Name");
            dataGridView1.Columns.Add("Column2", "Age");
        }
 
        private void dataGridView1_RowValidating(object sender, DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs e)
        {
            if (dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].IsInEditMode)
            {
                if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].FormattedValue.ToString()))
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("Please enter value.");
                    e.Cancel = true;
                }
            }
 
        }

I ended up using the DataError event which seems to be designed for what I needed.
