I'm using a datagridview for data entry.  After about 125 entries, the vertical slider is all the way at the bottom and I can't enter any more data.

How do I fix this?

You might want to use tools like Firebug (mostly for Firefox, but can use on other browsers as well) or some kind of web developer tools, which is available on most of the latest browsers. This will tell you what is messing up your html.

Have a look at the video on the home page here for Firebug:
http://getfirebug.com/

You can also have a look at your view source to see if that'll help in anyway.

If not, a screen-shot showing what is happening would be of help for us to dig deeper into the issue.

I don't think you understand the question... I have a C# .NET desktop application that uses a DataGridView for data input.  A screen shot of an empty DGV will show you nothing!

I want to know if there is a setting for maximum number of entries in the DGV.

You said:
"After about 125 entries, the vertical slider is all the way at the bottom and I can't enter any more data."

What happens if you click once on the top button of the vertical scrollbar? Won't it show you the last row that you can enter data in?

My thinking is that you can post a screenshot of this condition.

Also, if it is of any help to you the post below tells you that the max number is something like 2 billion:

Maybe you were not so off base on requesting an image, after all, a picture is worth a thousand words!  So, I have attached one... you can see that the slider is getting smaller, and eventually, the user is unable to add more data.

Hope this helps! DGV showing vertical slider

The image does not seem to help. The vertical scrollbar is bound to get smaller as and when you add entries as it's the default behavior; pretty sure you know about this. I'm still not sure what you mean by 'dgv does not let you add entries because the vertical scrollbar gets small'.

If you're talking about navigation, you can try using the tab key to navigate to the next cells and eventually to the next row.

That's pretty much what I can tell you regarding this.
