I want to assign the value of TxtVal to the ColumnIndex field of the grid.
The error message says "Property Item is ReadOnly."  

            EvalItemsDataGridView.Columns(e.ColumnIndex) = TxtVal

TxtVal is a modified version of TxtValue from the statement earlier in the program:
           Dim TxtValue As String = e.FormattedValue

hi

if you want to set text of a specific cell in GridView then you should use

 EvalItemsDataGridView.Columns(e.ColumnIndex) = TxtVal ????????  what does this means? we cant set text for a columns.. it must be either for header of a column or it must be for a single cell of a column.

to set text for a cell you should provide address of that cell

like this

Me.EvalItemsDataGridView.Rows(EvalItemsDataGridView.CurrentCell.RowIndex).Cells(EvalItemsDataGridView.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex).Value = "aa"


OR you can use this ...

        Me.EvalItemsDataGridView.CurrentCell.Value = ""



-thanks
