Delete selected row on right click in

Hi all.

I have a datagridview control that displays records based on the code below in Visual Studio 2010. I want to be able to right click a row and when the end user selects DELETE then it deletes it from the table and the datagridview control is refreshed. As you can see, I select the QuoteNumber which is the primary key of the table, but I don't show it in the datagridview control (I don't know if this will cause an issue). I started building the ContextMenuStrip1_Click event and I get an error at the cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() line: "No mapping exists from the object type System.Windows.Form.DataGridViewTextBoxColumn to a known managed provider native type"

Dim con As New SqlConnection
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand

        con.ConnectionString = "Data Source=myserver;Initial Catalog=mydb;Integrated Security=True"


        cmd.Connection = con

        cmd.CommandText = "SELECT  IQ.QuoteNumber,IQ.MasterItemNumber, IQ.Description, IQ.SLXID, SLX.ACCOUNT,IQ.QuoteDate, IQ.UnitCost, IQ.QuotedCost, IQ.MASItemNumber, IQ.Notes FROM mydb.dbo.IQuote IQ INNER JOIN [mydb2].db2.sysdba.ACCOUNT SLX ON IQ.SLXID = SLX.ACCOUNTID WHERE MasterItemNumber = @MasterItemNo"

        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@MasterItemNo", txtMasterItemNo.Text)

        Dim sda As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
        Dim dt As New DataTable()

        DataGridView1.DataSource = Nothing


DataGridView1.ColumnCount = 3   'Set Columns Count

        'Add Columns

        DataGridView1.Columns(0).Name = "MasterItemNumber"
        DataGridView1.Columns(0).HeaderText = "Master Item Number"
        DataGridView1.Columns(0).DataPropertyName = "MasterItemNumber"
        DataGridView1.Columns(0).Width = 180

        DataGridView1.Columns(1).Name = "MyItemNumber"
        DataGridView1.Columns(1).HeaderText = "My Item Number"
        DataGridView1.Columns(1).DataPropertyName = "MyItemNumber"
        DataGridView1.Columns(1).Width = 150

        DataGridView1.Columns(2).Name = "Description"
        DataGridView1.Columns(2).HeaderText = "Description"
        DataGridView1.Columns(2).DataPropertyName = "Description"
        DataGridView1.Columns(2).Width = 240

Open in new window

Private Sub ContextMenuStrip1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles ContextMenuStrip1.Click
Dim con As New SqlConnection
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand

        con.ConnectionString = "Data Source=myserver;Initial Catalog=mydb;Integrated Security=True"


        cmd.Connection = con

cmd.CommandText = "DELETE From IQuote where QuoteNumber = @QuoteNumber"
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@QuoteNumber", DataGridView1.Columns("QuoteNumber"))


    End Sub

cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@QuoteNumber", DataGridView1.Columns("QuoteNumber"))


cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@QuoteNumber", DataGridView1.SelectedRows(0).Cells("QuoteNumber").Value)

Thank you for your reply.

Now I get the following error: "Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index."

At the line of code you suggested.

Could it be because when the end user right clicks it only highlights the cell that is right-clicked and not the entire row? Or could it be I'm not displaying the QuoteNumber as a column in the datagridview control?

The SelectionMode was the problem. I had it set to Cell Select, I switched back to FullRowSelect and your suggested line of code works and deletes the row:

cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@QuoteNumber", DataGridView1.SelectedRows(0).Cells("QuoteNumber").Value)

Thanks again.
