GridDataView

I'm using the GridDataView. As rows are added, I want to color each row based on the value of a specific column.  I know how to do the coloring of the row.  What event will fire as rows are added?

The RowDataBound event performs this task in ASP.Net. The equivalent event in Windows Forms appears to be the RowsAdded event.

However, you may want to consider using the DataBindingComplete event and then cycle through all of the rows. You should also consider using the SuspendLayout and ResumeLayout methods of the DataGridView when cycling through the rows to allow your code to process without waiting for the computer to repaint the screen after each row's properties are changed.

I tried RowsAdded, it fires, but only for the first two rows that are added.

Here is one method:

Form1.vb -
Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Runtime.CompilerServices

Public Class Form1
	Private Sub OnLoad(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
		DataGridView1.DataSource = (From i In Enumerable.Range(0, 25)
							   Select New With {.ID = i, .Name = String.Format("Name{0}", i), .BirthDate = DateTime.Now.AddYears(-(9 * i)), .Age = DateTime.Now.Year - .BirthDate.Year, .IsWorking = i Mod 2 = 0}).ConvertToDataTable()
	End Sub

	Private Sub OnRowsAdded(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewRowsAddedEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.RowsAdded
		If TypeOf sender Is DataGridView Then
			Dim grid = DirectCast(sender, DataGridView)
			If grid.Rows.Count > 0 Then
				For Each row As DataGridViewRow In grid.Rows
					Try
						row.DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = If(row.Cells("Age").Value And 1, Color.Yellow, Color.Aqua)
					Finally
					End Try
				Next
			End If
		End If
	End Sub
End Class

Module Extensions
	<Extension()> _
	Public Function ConvertToDataTable(Of T)(ByVal source As IEnumerable(Of T)) As DataTable
		Dim properties As PropertyDescriptorCollection = TypeDescriptor.GetProperties(GetType(T))
		Dim table As DataTable = New DataTable()

		For i As Integer = 0 To properties.Count - 1
			Dim [property] As PropertyDescriptor = properties(i)
			If [property].PropertyType.IsGenericType AndAlso [property].PropertyType.GetGenericTypeDefinition().Equals(GetType(Nullable)) Then
				table.Columns.Add([property].Name, [property].PropertyType.GetGenericArguments()(0))
			Else
				table.Columns.Add([property].Name, [property].PropertyType)
			End If
		Next

		Dim values(properties.Count - 1) As Object
		For Each item As T In source
			For i As Integer = 0 To properties.Count - 1
				values(i) = properties(i).GetValue(item)
			Next
			table.Rows.Add(values)
		Next

		Return table
	End Function
End Module
