CurrentCellChanging / CurrentCellChanged

Hi, We''ve noticed this problem upon upgrading to v3.2.1.0 (from v2.1.0.9). We have a databound grid with a checkbox cell. This is the only ''editable'' column in the grid and the user may check/uncheck this based on a value in another column (ie, amt column must be > 500). If the value in the amt column is > 500, the user may select/unselect the row by checking/unchecking the checkbox, otherwise the program cancels the action in the _CurrentCellChanging event. The event _CurrentCellChanging is triggered ONLY when the user moves from a different cell to the checkbox cell. If the current cell is already the checkbox cell, the event is no longer triggered. How do we fix this problem? Thanks, TA

You can handle the CheckBoxClick event. It is a cancelable event.

We used to have the validation in that event. However, the problem with the CheckBoxClick event is that it only responds to mouse clicks, not keypress events (the space key will continue to check/uncheck the checkbox). We don''t want to duplicate the code in the keypress (space) so we decided to use the _CurrentCellChanging and _CurrentCellChanged events. Everything was on v2.1.0.9. >You can handle the CheckBoxClick event. It is a cancelable event.

Hi, I''ve created this dummy program to demonstrate the problem. The _CurrentCellChanging is only triggered when the user moves from another cell. The validation happens in this event ("*** OK ***" will be displayed if the validation is a success). However, when the focus is already on the checkbox cell, this event is not triggered when the user checks/unchecks the box, thus missing the validation routine. thanks, private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { #region Get the DataSource DataTable dt = new DataTable("MyTable"); int nCols = 4; int nRows = 10; for(int i = 0; i < nCols; i++) dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn(string.Format("Col{0}", i))); dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("boolValue", typeof(bool))); for(int i = 0; i < nRows; ++i) { DataRow dr = dt.NewRow(); for(int j = 0; j < nCols; j++) if(i % 2 == 0 && j == 3) dr[j] = "VALID"; else dr[j] = string.Format("row{0} col{1}", i, j); dr[nCols] = i % 2 == 0; dt.Rows.Add(dr); } #endregion this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataSource = dt; } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellChanging(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CurrentCellChanging"); if(gridDataBoundGrid1[gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.RowIndex,4].CellValue.ToString() == "VALID") System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("*** OK ***"); else e.Cancel = true; } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CurrentCellChanged"); } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellValidateString(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellValidateStringEventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CurrentCellValidateString"); } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CheckBoxClick(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCellClickEventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CheckBoxClick"); } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellActivating(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellActivatingEventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CurrentCellActivating"); e.ColIndex = 5; } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellValidating(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CurrentCellValidating"); } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellStartEditing(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CurrentCellStartEditing"); } private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellKeyPress(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs e) { System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("_CurrentCellKeyPress"); }

Not yet. If you need to do something now, you could try moving your validation code into a helper method, and then call this same method from both CheckBoxClick and CurrentCellKeyPress.


TA Tim Aquino June 29, 2005 01:38 PM

Hi, I think I''ve found a workaround with the problem: 1. I''ve added grid.CurrentCell.CancelEdit() in _CurrentCellChanging if validation fails 2. I''ve added grid.CureentCell.BeginEdit() and grid.CurrentCell.EndEdit() in _CurrentCellChanged. any comments on these codes? thanks, >Not yet. > >If you need to do something now, you could try moving your validation code into a helper method, and then call this same method from both CheckBoxClick and CurrentCellKeyPress.

Hi TA, I checked the sample with our latest codebase and it is fixed there. It is related to an issue we had with CurrentCellChanging that also affected other cell types. Your workaround should be fine. But if you want to check it with the latest codebase you can submit a dtrac incident and we''ll send you download instructions for the patch.
