Hi expert
Is it possible to set the min/max values in DataGridViewTextBoxColumn?
I want it to be between 10-1000.

I am using Winform .NET 3.5, C#.

You would have to either add a column to your grid with a custom control that enforces a range, or you can handle the CellValidating event and check the value manually. Something along the lines of:
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            dataGridView1.Columns.Add(new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn());
            dataGridView1.Rows.Add();

            dataGridView1.CellValidating += dataGridView1_CellValidating;
        }

        void dataGridView1_CellValidating(object sender, DataGridViewCellValidatingEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.ColumnIndex == <index of your column>)
            {
                int val;
                if (int.TryParse(e.FormattedValue.ToString(), out val))
                {
                    if (val < 10 || val > 1000)
                        dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].ErrorText = "Number must be between 10 and 1000";
                }
                else
                {
                     dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].ErrorText = "Value must be numeric";
                }
            }
        }

Yes you can use CellValidating event for the same:

Here my column Index is 2.

   private void dataGridView1_CellValidating(object sender, DataGridViewCellValidatingEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.ColumnIndex == 2)
            {
                int cellValue = int.Parse(dataGridView1[e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex].Value.ToString());
                if (!(cellValue >= 10 && cellValue <= 100))
                {
                    e.Cancel = true;
                }
            }
        }
