How do I copy the value from one datagridview cell into another cell in the same row?

This is what I am trying (and failing miserably) to do...

A user has entered a new row in my datagrid. Once they type in a value into the first cell in that row, I want to pre-populate 3 other cells in the row with the same value.

I tried to use the Cell_Leave event and its just raining bombs over here :-(

try the cellendedit

    Private Sub DataGridView1_CellEndEdit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellEndEdit
        If e.ColumnIndex = 1 Then
            Me.DataGridView1.Item(2, e.RowIndex).Value = Me.DataGridView1.Item(1, e.RowIndex).Value
            Me.DataGridView1.Item(3, e.RowIndex).Value = Me.DataGridView1.Item(1, e.RowIndex).Value
            Me.DataGridView1.Item(4, e.RowIndex).Value = Me.DataGridView1.Item(1, e.RowIndex).Value
        End If
    End Sub
