Null reference exception when attempting to delete a record after a closing a dropdown combo in the recordvaluechanging event

I have a ggc that have a combo box in a row. When the user select a value in the combo box, I want to delete the row based on a certain logic that I am checking in the RecordValueChanging event.

However, I am getting an null reference exception in the TableControlCurrentCellCloseDropDown event, which I am also using like this...

private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellCloseDropDown(object sender, GridTableControlPopupClosedEventArgs e)
if (e.Inner.PopupCloseType == Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.PopupCloseType.Done)

The issue is that the RecordValueChanging event fires before I the TableControlCurrentCellCloseDropDown event, so the called to e.TableControl.Table.EndEdit(); is raising the null reference error because I have already deleted that record.

Hi James,

Thank you for your details.

You can avoid the NullReferenceException by lock and unlock the current cell. The Lock / Unlock blocks any changes to the active current cell.

Please refer this code snippets:

private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellCloseDropDown(object sender, GridTableControlPopupClosedEventArgs e)
if (e.Inner.PopupCloseType == Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.PopupCloseType.Done && this.gridGroupingControl1.Table.CurrentRecord!=null)
GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.CurrentCell;

Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.

Best Regards,
