Hi all,
I have a datagridview and I've set that the MaxInputLenght of each TextBoxColumn is 2.
Now i want to pass automatically to the next cell when the user enters 2 characters in one cell.
What is the best event handler i can use for this ? And how to determine when there are already 2 characters entered ?

Regards,
Peter

Hi,

You could give the event "CellValueChanged" a try to detect if the user inputs some text in the cell. You could simply check if the length of the string inside the cell equals 2 and then jump to the next cell.

Hi,
I've tried it with the event "CellValueChanged", also with "CellBeginEdit" but it doesn't work.
I think i can't check the lenght of the string of the cell because the inputted value is only assigned to the cell when i click to another cell.
I'm not going to use this feature. The user has to push the Tab button to go to the next cell. And that works.
Thanks anyway,
Peter

Try this:

DataGridViewTextBoxEditingControl TextBoxControl;

private void dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(object sender, DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
        {
            TextBoxControl = e.Control as DataGridViewTextBoxEditingControl;
            if (TextBoxControl != null)
            {
                TextBoxControl.KeyPress += TextBoxCellEditControlKeyPress2;
            }
        }

private void TextBoxCellEditControlKeyPress2(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
        {
            int length = TextBoxControl.Text.Length;
            if (length == 2)
            {
                dataGridView1.CurrentCell = dataGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells[1];
            }
        }
