Asked On January 18, 2006 02:19 PM UTC

Hi there, I''m using a Grid Grouping Control which i have 3 columns. My first and second column does not allow empty value. And for the third column it allow null value. I would like to validate the first and second column to make sure the user must key in some value I''ve tried out for some functions but i couldn''t get what i want. Hope that anyone of you would lend me a helping hand on this. Thanks in advance...

Hi Wyejin, You can either handle the TableControlCurrrentCellValidating / CurrentRecordContextChange events and checking the validation, you can cancel it. (e.Inner.Cancel = true / e.Cancel = true). Regards, Stanley

Hi Wyejin, See if these code helps. Best regards, Stanley // To make sure that user types in Col1 & Col2 before leaving the record/row private void gridGroupingControl1_CurrentRecordContextChange(object sender, Syncfusion.Grouping.CurrentRecordContextChangeEventArgs e) { if(e.Action == CurrentRecordAction.EndEditCalled) { Record rec = e.Record as Record; if(rec != null) { string col1 = Convert.ToString(rec.GetValue("Col1")); string col2 = Convert.ToString(rec.GetValue("Col2")); if(col1 == "" || col2 == "" ) { e.Cancel = true; } } } } // To make sure that user types in Col1 & Col2 before leaving the currentcell private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellValidating(object sender, GridTableControlCancelEventArgs e) { GridCurrentCell cc = e.TableControl.CurrentCell; GridTableCellStyleInfo style = e.TableControl.Model[cc.RowIndex, cc.ColIndex]; if(style.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.RecordFieldCell && ( style.TableCellIdentity.Column.Name == "Col1" || style.TableCellIdentity.Column.Name == "Col2")) { if(cc.Renderer.ControlText == "") e.Inner.Cancel = true; else e.Inner.Cancel = false; } }

Hi Wyejin, Refer this sample, let me know if you can reproduce that behavior. Best regards, Stanley

Hi Stanley, The sample you provide me doesn''t really help much. Is there anyway i can force the gridgroupingcontrol to update and accept the changes i made? Thanks in advance....

Hi Wyejin, Attached is a sample in which I have bound a grid grouping control and a grid data bound control to the same data source to show the changes that are being made in a cell and which are getting updated. You may also try to refresh the grid or use RefreshRange methods to see if it might happen due to some refresh problem. Regards, Calvin.

Hi Wyejin, Does cc.EndEdit() helps after cc.Renderer.ControlValue is assigned? Best regards, Stanley
