Change checkbox column value

You can set the value for a check box in one check box column when enabling or disabling it in another check box column using the SfDataGrid.CellCheckBoxClick and SfDataGrid.CurrentCellActivating events.


this.sfDataGrid1.CellCheckBoxClick += sfDataGrid1_CellCheckBoxClick;
this.sfDataGrid1.CurrentCellActivating += sfDataGrid1_CurrentCellActivating;
void sfDataGrid1_CurrentCellActivating(object sender, CurrentCellActivatingEventArgs e)
    if (e.DataColumn.GridColumn.MappingName == "ClosedStatus")
        e.Cancel = true;
void sfDataGrid1_CellCheckBoxClick(object sender, CellCheckBoxClickEventArgs e)
    if (e.Column.MappingName == "ClosedStatus")
        e.Cancel = true;
    if (e.Column.MappingName == "IsClosed")
        (e.Record as OrderInfo).ClosedStatus = e.NewValue == CheckState.Checked;


AddHandler Me.sfDataGrid1.CellCheckBoxClick, AddressOf sfDataGrid1_CellCheckBoxClick
AddHandler Me.sfDataGrid1.CurrentCellActivating, AddressOf sfDataGrid1_CurrentCellActivating
Private Sub sfDataGrid1_CurrentCellActivating(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CurrentCellActivatingEventArgs)
    If e.DataColumn.GridColumn.MappingName = "ClosedStatus" Then
        e.Cancel = True
    End If
End Sub
Private Sub sfDataGrid1_CellCheckBoxClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CellCheckBoxClickEventArgs)
    If e.Column.MappingName = "ClosedStatus" Then
        e.Cancel = True
    End If
    If e.Column.MappingName = "IsClosed" Then
        TryCast(e.Record, OrderInfo).ClosedStatus = e.NewValue = CheckState.Checked
    End If
End Sub
