Use of pushbutton

In order to use a PushButton in a cell, the CellType property can be used and the CellButtonClicked event can be used to get the button clicked action.


// form
this.gridControl1[2, 2].CellType = GridCellTypeName.PushButton;
this.gridControl1[2, 2].Description = "Push Me";
// Trigger the required event.
this.gridControl1.CellButtonClicked += gridControl1_CellButtonClicked;
void gridControl1_CellButtonClicked(object sender, GridCellButtonClickedEventArgs e)
   string s = string.Format("You clicked ({0},{1}).", e.RowIndex, e.ColIndex);


' form
Private Me.gridControl1(2, 2).CellType = GridCellTypeName.PushButton
Private Me.gridControl1(2, 2).Description = "Push Me"
' Trigger the required event.
Private Me.gridControl1.CellButtonClicked += AddressOf gridControl1_CellButtonClicked
Private Sub gridControl1_CellButtonClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridCellButtonClickedEventArgs)
