Handle the EditingControlShowing event of the grid and if the type of control being shown is combobox then subscribe to its change event

The ComboBox control is created at run time, how do I add this event your mentioning?

Here is the full code of my grid:

Dim ApplicationList As New DataSet
ApplicationList = MC.DB(AppListSQLStr(MC.UserSysID()))

Dim img_down As New DataGridViewImageColumn()
Dim inImg1 As Image = Image.FromFile(IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() + "\AppImages\down_arrow.jpg")
img_down.Name = "MoveDown"
img_down.HeaderText = ""
img_down.Image = inImg1

Dim img_up As New DataGridViewImageColumn()
Dim inImg2 As Image = Image.FromFile(IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() + "\AppImages\up_arrow.jpg")
img_up.Name = "MoveUp"
img_up.HeaderText = ""
img_up.Image = inImg2

Dim cmb As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn()
cmb.HeaderText = "Priority"
cmb.Name = "cmb"
cmb.MaxDropDownItems = 3
cmb.DisplayStyle = DataGridViewComboBoxDisplayStyle.ComboBox
Dim PriorityValues As New DataSet
PriorityValues = MC.DB("select PriorityDesc from App_Priority order by ID")
For b = 0 To PriorityValues.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
    cmb.Items.Add(PriorityValues.Tables(0).Rows(b).Item("PriorityDesc"))
Next


AppListOrderGridView.Columns.Add(img_down)
AppListOrderGridView.Columns.Add(img_up)
AppListOrderGridView.Columns.Add("ApplNum", "No.")
AppListOrderGridView.Columns.Add(cmb)
AppListOrderGridView.Columns.Add("ApplName", "Application Name")
AppListOrderGridView.Columns.Add("OrderID", "Order ID")
AppListOrderGridView.Columns.Add("ApplOrder", "Order Value")


For i = 0 To ApplicationList.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
    AppListOrderGridView.Rows.Add(inImg1, inImg2, (i + 1), ApplicationList.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("AppPriority"), ApplicationList.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("Appname"), ApplicationList.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("ID"), ApplicationList.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("AppOrder"))
Next


For i = 0 To AppListOrderGridView.ColumnCount - 1
    AppListOrderGridView.Columns(i).AutoSizeMode = System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.AllCells
    AppListOrderGridView.Columns(i).SortMode = System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable
    If AppListOrderGridView.Columns(i).Name <> "cmb" Then
        AppListOrderGridView.Columns(i).ReadOnly = True
    End If
Next

AppListOrderGridView.Columns("OrderID").Visible = False
AppListOrderGridView.Columns("ApplOrder").Visible = False

AppListOrderGridView.Columns("ApplName").AutoSizeMode = System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.Fill

I want - whenever the value of the ComboBox changed- to save the new selected data to database.

I got it, and it was through the (EditingControlShowing) as CodeCruiser mentioned, but the code there in the link he provided was not including the event handler part of the needed code I waslooking for.

Anyway, I got the event handler part and here is what I added to my code above:

Private Sub AppListOrderGridView_EditingControlShowing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs) Handles AppListOrderGridView.EditingControlShowing
    Dim comboBox As ComboBox = CType(e.Control, ComboBox)
    If (Not (comboBox) Is Nothing) Then
        RemoveHandler comboBox.SelectedIndexChanged, AddressOf ComboBoxIndexChanged
        AddHandler comboBox.SelectedIndexChanged, AddressOf ComboBoxIndexChanged
    End If
End Sub

Sub ComboBoxIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    If AppListOrderGridView.CurrentCellAddress.X = 3 Then
        'Do Some Action
    End If
End Sub
