Users can freely enter into the first column, and in the Cell Validation event, we verify that the format of what they entered is correct and then lookup the number they entered to populate the second column with the name.Here is a list of all validation events: Cell Validating: Fires when a cell loses input focus, enabling content validation.how can I validate column content without getting this error.To Int16(column1.currentrow.column["My Column"].value. Another way of doing things, as instructed by the documentation is to handle the Value Changing event and handling validation there.Value and the vend Num variable would reflect this formatted value.Any idea what's going on here or how to correct it?
Hello Jeff, I am glad that the sample is of any help. Editing Element to gain access to the underlying control.
Unfortunately the code only allows integers to be entered in the datagridview.
Since i have a column name as "Item Name" which is supposed to be entered as text there is an issue in the code.
It generates an error message when i type in the name of the item.
The rest of the cell validations are perfectly working!
