DataGridView, getting the dirty value of a cell when editing

Hi guys,

I have a problem with the DataGridView. I want to catch the value of a cell
when the user is editing it. Actually, I can't figure if there is an event
or a property to get this value.

For example, when the user type something on a cell, I want to display what
he wrote on another place in my application. I don't care if this text isn't
going to be used finally (a.k.a, if the user cancel the editing mode).

Is there a way to do that? I really can't figure any.

Thanks!

Uses the DGV EditingControlS howing event to get at the control..
Here is an example for a DataGridViewTex tBoxColumn...

private void dataGridView1_E ditingControlSh owing(object sender, DataGridViewEdi tingControlShow ingEventArgs e)
{
TextBox textBox = e.Control as TextBox;
textBox.Text = "hihi";
}

Now this ought to be a simple matter. But nothing's simple in the Net world, I'm finding. In vb6 you could use "!" to force text to upper case in the format function.

I'm in the phase of converting from 6 to Net and it seems that even the simplest thing is very, very complicated. And it...

The situation: * I have a ButtonColumn in a DataGridView. * When the user preses one of the buttons, a dialog appears. * Based on what the user selects in the dialog, data is entered programmatically into the the underlying cell (i.e., I'm setting Value property of the cell based on user input, but the user is not directly entering any data).

I have a DataGridView bound to an MS Access table. This is a single- user application. When the User is adding or editing a row, the User may click on a Control elsewhere. That Control has context which I use to programmatically set *other* r/o cell values for the currently selected grid row. So, after that click on another control, and stuffing the related cell values, I want to seamlessly allow the user to resume editing/adding that row...

VB.NET 2005 2.0 Framework application is using a DataGridView for SQL data access and user data entry. As part of exception/error handling, the app wants to advise the user when he/she enters a value into a DGV field that is inappropriate; for example, an alpha character in a cell containing an integer value. When the user types in the alpha and hits enter, BeginEdit fires off, realizes the cell is dirty, and can see the previous/old...

I'm trying to make a datagridview column to act like a datetimepicker column (C#.Net 2005). These are the behaviours that the dgv should have: 1) Initially all the cells of the dtp column should be blank unless they are filled by the user. 2) As soon as the user enters a cell, the dtp control should appear as the editing control of that cell. If there's a value in the cell beforehand, that value is set as the value of the dtp editing control...
