DataGrid, AllowNew, pasting inserts rows

Hi All,

I have a DataGrid that is a visual representation of a DataSet. It was
created like so:
dataset = new DataSet();
adapter.Fill(da taset);
dataGridTable.D ataSource = dataset.Tables[0];
dataGridTable.T ableStyles.Clea r();
DataGridTableSt yle tableStyle = new DataGridTableSt yle();
dataGridTable.T ableStyles.Add( tableStyle);

I'd like to prevent users from adding new rows, while still allowing
them to edit table data. So, I did:
dataset.Tables[0].DefaultView.Al lowNew = false;
dataset.Tables[0].DefaultView.Al lowEdit = true;

OK, I no longer see that last row of the DataGrid with the "*" on it,
so it _looks_ like I've been prevented from inserting new rows, but
there is a problem.
Try:
Select and copy two rows
Select two other rows and paste over them

Expect to see:
Copied information pasted over the selected rows.

But See:
The two rows you were trying to paste appear as newly inserted rows.

Can anyone tell me what's going on and how to fix it? Am I missing
something basic?

Thanks much,
whitecrow

Hmm, I've kept on playing with this. It really looks like a bug in the
language, but I'm just a beginner -- it's extremely unlikely that I've
actually found a language bug. Still can't solve it, though.

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone can help me with a really annoying problem I have been having. I made a derived datagrid class that will select the row when a user clicks anywhere on a cell (multi-select without modifier keys). I got that working fine, but I also wanted to keep rows selected after a sort, which I do by storing the row's id in an arraylist. The idea was to do the sort and then go back and re-select the rows with that...

Hi all I'm a former Access developer who would like to implement a many-to-many relation in about the same way you do in Access: With a subform and a combo box. Is it possible to use a combobox in a datagrid? Any other suggestions/articles on how to implement many-many relations in the frontend (which of course are 2 one-many relations)?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents.

Hello I'm a network technician in training and I need your help. I am currently learning how to create and manage the different types of VPNs and I have a question about LAN-to-LAN VPNs.
