Datagrid and money format problems (BUG?)

Hi all,

I'm getting a bug with the datagrid object.
I've created one from scratch, bound it to a dataview with 2 int32
columns and formatted the output as currency.

I've found that when you use the F2 key to enter edit mode and then
hit TAB or ESCAPE without actually editing the value, dotnet crashes
with a null reference error.

Any takers?

To replicate this problem, create a new form, add a datagrid and add a
tablestyle with two columns, mapping to col1 and col2.
Set the format of col1 to "c" and put this in the constuctor:

DataTable loTable = new DataTable();
loTable.Columns.Add("col1", typeof(Int32));
loTable.Columns.Add("col2", typeof(Int32));

this.dataGrid1.DataSource = loTable.DefaultView;
loTable.Rows[0]["col1"] = 1234;
loTable.Rows[0]["col2"] = 5678;

Run it, and hit F2 on the first cell, and then TAB.

I've also noticed that it won't crash if there's only one column.

Please help!

I could not reproduce your problem. I have installed the sp1 for Net 1.1

It must be something else, I've just installed SP 1 for .Net FWK 1.1
this morning and I'm still getting the same problems.

Can anybody else replicate this problem?

I'm using:
Microsoft Development Environment 2003, Version 7.1.3088
Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 Version 1.1.4322 SP1
Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4
I also had VSIP installed but have since had it removed.
Here's the entire form code:
//Cut Here: --------------------------------------------------
using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Collections;,
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Data;

namespace Products
/// <summary>
/// Summary description for Form1.
/// </summary>
public class Form1 : System.Windows.Forms.Form
private System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid dataGrid1;
private System.Windows.Forms.DataGridTableStyle dataGridTableStyle1;
private System.Windows.Forms.DataGridTextBoxColumn
private System.Windows.Forms.DataGridTextBoxColumn
/// <summary>
/// Required designer variable.
/// </summary>
private System.ComponentModel.Container components = null;

public Form1()
// Required for Windows Form Designer support

// TODO: Add any constructor code after InitializeComponent call
DataTable loTable;
DataRow loRow;
loTable = new DataTable();
loTable.Columns.Add("col1", typeof(Int32));
loTable.Columns.Add("col2", typeof(Int32));
dataGrid1.DataSource = loTable;
loRow = loTable.NewRow();
loRow["col1"] = 1234;
loRow["col2"] = 5678;
/// <summary>

/// </summary>
protected override void Dispose( bool disposing )
if( disposing )
if(components != null)
base.Dispose( disposing );

#region Windows Form Designer generated code

/// the contents of this method with the code editor.
/// </summary>
private void InitializeComponent()
this.dataGrid1 = new System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid();
this.dataGridTableStyle1 = new
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn1 = new
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn2 = new
((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.d ataGrid1)).BeginInit();
// dataGrid1
this.dataGrid1.DataMember = "";
this.dataGrid1.HeaderForeColor =
this.dataGrid1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(8, 8);
this.dataGrid1.Name = "dataGrid1";
this.dataGrid1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(280, 264);
this.dataGrid1.TabIndex = 0;
System.Windows.Forms.DataGridTableStyle[] {
// dataGridTableStyle1
this.dataGridTableStyle1.DataGrid = this.dataGrid1;
this.dataGridTableStyle1.GridColumnStyles.AddRange (new
System.Windows.Forms.DataGridColumnStyle[] {
this.dataGridTableStyle1.HeaderForeColor =
this.dataGridTableStyle1.MappingName = "";
// dataGridTextBoxColumn1
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn1.Format = "c";
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn1.FormatInfo = null;
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn1.MappingName = "col1";
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn1.Width = 75;
// dataGridTextBoxColumn2
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn2.Format = "c";
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn2.FormatInfo = null;
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn2.MappingName = "col2";
this.dataGridTextBoxColumn2.Width = 75;
// Form1
this.AutoScaleBaseSize = new System.Drawing.Size(5, 13);
this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 273);
this.Name = "Form1";
this.Text = "Form1";
((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.d ataGrid1)).EndInit();

// To Here:----------------------------------------------
