Get cell text from a winform datagrid.

Well, I found it on msdn. It looks like this:

DataGridCell currentCell;

string currentCellData ;

// Get the current cell.

currentCell = dgApplication.C urrentCell;

// Get the current cell's data.

currentCellData =
dgApplication[currentCell.Row Number,currentC ell.ColumnNumbe r].ToString();

// Set the TextBox's text to that of the current cell.

MessageBox.Show (currentCellDat a);

I have a Winform with a derived datagrid and a button that adds a row to the datagrid in its Click event. The button has a shortcut text "&New Row". When I enter a value in a datagrid cell and then mouse click the button without tabbing out of the edited cell, everything is fine. If I hit Alt+N instead after editing the cell, the cell values are reset to the previous value of the cell before the button_click code is executed. I have...

Hi I have a data grid with a hyperlink column. the colum has numbers like 00001,000002, ect. Just wondering how to get the text value of the cell as tempstring = datagrid.Items(rownumber).Cells.Item(column number).Text returns a blank string. It seems to work ok for the other columns that are just regular datagrid columns, not hyperlink types. Thanks. -- Paul G Software engineer.
