Hi everyone,

I tried to Google the web for quite sometime now but I can't seem to find the solution to the problem I am facing.

I have a typical datagridview, not the web one where I have 5 rows to begin with, any any given time if any column is populated or filled out with a value, the rest of the cells in that row become mandatory fields.  Opposite to text box where you can set the MandatoryField, I can't find a way to set the currentcell or the datagridview[column,cell] or find any of their related attributes to set that specific cell to mandatory.

From reading what I described so far you can see this attribute has to be dynamic, that is if the user decide to blank out all values within a row then all the cell in that row will change from mandatory back to non mandatory.

Any tips or resources on this are greatly appreciated.
