VB.Net datagridview, need to set some columns automatically when user inserts a new row

Last Modified: 2017-11-14

I have developed a number of console apps, but this is my first Windows forms-based app, with a DataGridView control (which is showing the data in a datatable) where users can add rows. When they insert a new row, I want to set some columns of that row automatically (insertion date/time, user name, that kind of stuff).

I don't knw how to do that... Can you help ?
