VB.Net Removing Rows from DataGridView

Posted on 2016-09-05

Hi Experts
I have a datagridview with two columns and about 250 rows    There are 20 rowsin the second column with the value "No Information"
and I want to delete these.  I have rigged a button just for testing.

This code for testing works but only gives me a MessageBox 9 times not 20, I thought it would give me 20

   
  Dim DGV1Row As DataGridViewRow
            Dim CheckValue As String

            For Each DGV1Row In DGV1.Rows
                CheckValue = DGV1Row.Cells(1).Value
                If CheckValue = "No Information" Then
                    MsgBox(CheckValue)
                End If
            Next

Open in new window


This Code is intermittent, sometimes removing 4 "No Information"  and sometimes 8, not 20

         
  Dim DGV1Row As DataGridViewRow
            Dim CheckValue As String
            For Each DGV1Row In DGV1.Rows
                CheckValue = DGV1Row.Cells(1).Value
                If CheckValue = "No Information" Then
                     DGV1.Rows.Remove(DGV1Row)
                End If
            Next

Open in new window


The data in the Rows is identical each time I run it and I even tried comparing the values length to see if they were not the same
I've also tried variations of For i  = 0 To DGV1.Rows.Count  With no success.

What am I doing wrong??

Many Thanks

Hi  PNRT;

Try it like this and see if it gives you the results you are looking for.
Dim DGV1Row As DataGridViewRow
Dim CheckValue As String
'' Make the -2 to -1 if the DataGridView does not display a blank row at the end
For i = DGV1.Rows.Count - 2 To 0 Step -1
    CheckValue = DGV1.Rows.Item(i).Cells(1).Value
    If CheckValue = "No Information" Then
        DGV1.Rows.RemoveAt(i)
    End If
Next

Open in new window

Hi Fernando
Many Thanks for the reply

No luck I'm afraid
I added  Dim i As Integer

It does the same, deletes four or five of the values only.

How are you loading the DataGridView? From DB, a List Object or something else and are you using a BindingSource to feed the DataGridView?

No, just running a bunch of queries and adding the result to the datagridview with

frmMain.DGV1.Rows.Add(New String() {Value1, Value2})

Thank you Fernando
I will step back a bit and remove everything except the datagridview and the added data code and see if I can reproduce it.  Thanks again,

Hi
I think I have found the problem and the fix although I don't know why VB seems to have added rubbish to some, not all of my queries and produced this

frmMain.DGV1.Rows.Add(New String() {Value1, CType(CType(CType(CType(CType(CType(CType(Value2, String), String), String), String), String), String), String)})

I don't understand why but it looks as though for some queries I was not testing again a string at all.

By  just Adding .......    Value2.ToString       removes it from the Datagridview

How are you doing your query? What technology are you using ADO.Net, Entity Framework, Linq to SQL or something else? It is hard to understand what is happening without knowing this.

.Net 4.5.2,     querying win32 class and  securityCenter2 and other classes,   but I have installed CodeRush recently and not really sure what I'm doing with yet.  Maybe I have it set up wrong.
Thanks for your help.  At least I could see where I was going wrong and it wasn't in the first code..
