cannot clear datagridview rows, VB.Net

I have a VB.net datagridview in a project, unbound.  In the RowValidated event, I determine whether I need to make a database write.  If I do make a database write, I want to refill the grid, as I need the identity column of the newly added row to appear in the grid.

I use linq to sql to make the database writes, so, while still in the RowValidated event, I call dc.SubmitChanges, then I call my FillGrid (see code).  As soon as I execute the line Me.dgvMKL.Rows.Clear(), I get the error:

Operation cannot be performed in this event handler.

Is there something I need to do to commit the grid or some such thing before trying to clear the rows?  I tried invoking the EndEdit method in the RowValidated event, but that didn't help.

Thanks,

 Private Sub FillGrid()
        Try

            Me.dgvMKL.Rows.Clear()

            Dim dc As dcKittingdc = New dcKittingdc(Me._ConnString)

            Dim MKLRecs As IQueryable(Of MKL) = From i In dc.MKLs
                                                Where i.Job_Number = Me.tJob.Text _
                                                AndAlso i.SS_Number = Me.tSS.Text _
                                                AndAlso i.Install = Me.cbInstall.Text
                                                Select i

            For Each MKLRec As MKL In MKLRecs
                Me.dgvMKL.Rows.Add(MKLRec.Job_Number, _
                                   MKLRec.SS_Number, _
                                   MKLRec.Install, _
                                   MKLRec.Real_Part_Number, _
                                   MKLRec.Qty.ToString(), _
                                   MKLRec.uom, _
                                   MKLRec.Active, _
                                   MKLRec.User, _
                                   MKLRec.DateTime.ToString(), _
                                   MKLRec.Top_Collector, _
                                   MKLRec.MKL_Id.ToString())
            Next
        Catch ex As Exception
            Throw New Exception("At FillGrid/frmEditMKL: " + ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

The grid is never bound, but I tried this anyhow.  No luck.

I solved this using information I found here:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4960232/operation-cannot-be-performed-in-this-event-handler


I used a timer.
