Completing cell edit in DataGridView

Posted on 2010-11-14

I'm using c# 4.0. I have a DataGridView on a form.

When the data changes (via CellValueChanged), a Save button is enabled that lets the user save, after which the button is disabled.

However, the user can type something into a cell but leave the cursor in the cell; effectively not committing the cell (CellValueChanged does not fire). Is there some way I can shift the mode from cell editing so that the value is committed when Save is clicked?

You can try calling the EndEdit() method of the DataGridView upon leaving a cell.
private void dataGridView1_CellLeave(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    this.dataGridView1.EndEdit();
}

Open in new window

That pointed me in the right direction. Just doing the EndEdit() resulted in losing the changes. I had to end the edit on the current row, then the data grid, then the binding source.

this.DataGridView1.CurrentRow.DataGridView.EndEdit();
this.DataGridView1.EndEdit();
bindingSource1.EndEdit();
taDevices.Update(tblDevices1.devices);

Open in new window
