Hi,

Can someone help me pls why this doesn't seem to work?

private void dataGridViewempl_CellContentClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
        {
            
            if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex == 6)
            {
                CheckBox deletebox = new CheckBox();
                deletebox = (CheckBox)dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value;

                if (deletebox != null)
                {
                    if (deletebox.Checked == false)
                        deletebox.Checked = true;
                    else
                        deletebox.Checked = false;
                }

            }
           
        }

Really appreciate it. Thanks much!

Here:

private void Form5_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{ 
       DataGridViewComboBoxColumn cmbcolumn = new DataGridViewComboBoxColumn(); 
       cmbcolumn.Name = "cmbColumn";
       cmbcolumn.HeaderText = "combobox column"; 
       cmbcolumn.Items.AddRange(new string[] { "item1", "item2", "item3" });  //here you can even use dataBinding!
       dataGridView1.Columns.Insert(1, cmbcolumn); //or add: dgv.Columns.Add(cmbcolumn);
       dataGridView1.EditingControlShowing += new DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventHandler(dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing);  
}

private void dataGridViewEkipe_EditingControlShowing(object sender, DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
{
     ComboBox combo = e.Control as ComboBox;
     if (combo != null)
     {
          // Remove an existing event-handler, if present, to avoid 
          // adding multiple handlers when the editing control is reused.
          combo.SelectedIndexChanged -=
          new EventHandler(ComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged);

          // Add the event handler. 
          combo.SelectedIndexChanged +=
          new EventHandler(ComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged);
     }
}

private void ComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
     ComboBox cb = (ComboBox)sender;
     string item = cb.Text;
     if (item != null)
         MessageBox.Show(item);
}

This is it!

You created a variable deletebox in a method.
After the method is finished, deletebox does not exist any more.

CellContentClicked is not suitable event to get comboBox clciked (or selected). You you will never get this code into work. Take a look my example, you have to use CheckBox_SelectedIndexChanged event, but since DGV does NOT have this kind of event, you have to do a work around, to use a "normal" comboBox event.

It works like charm :)

Hi all,

Thanks for your feedback. However, none of them didn't do it. I don't understand why this is so difficult when this is relatively easy in VB :=) Even I can't find any solution in the internet.

@Mitja -- Thanks! But I don't understand; your code involves a combobox, not a checkbox? I'm probably missing something..

Still trying to tweak my code..

OMG, I just found the solution. My code is correct, the property of my datagrid is not. EditMode should have been EditOnEnter. I set it as EditProgrammatically because I'm so used to doing that :=)

Whew, I'm just so relieved. Thanks all!

Oh OK. I'm not relieved after all :=( EditOnEnter lets me edit any of my columns and I don't want that. This is getting frustrating...

Sorry, I gave you the wrong code, it was for ComboBox column, sorry ones again.

What is your problem now? Can you please explain it a bit better?

Hi ddanbe,
Thanks for pointing the article. I've revised my code, but still it doesn't work:

if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex == 6)
            {
                if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.FormattedValueType == Type.GetType("System.String"))
                if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value != null)
                {
                    bool checkstate = (bool)dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value;

                    if (checkstate == false)
                        dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = true;
                    else
                        dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = false;

                }
                else
                    dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = true;

            }

@Mitja -- that's alright :=) I'm still trying to solve this.

Oops, sorry, wrong code..I was tweaking and adding/removing and re-arranging my code, guess I did not remove some..Here's the correct one:

if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex == 6)
            {
                
                if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value != null)
                {
                    bool checkstate = (bool)dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value;

                    if (checkstate == false)
                        dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = true;
                    else
                        dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = false;

                }
                else
                    dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = true;

            }

try this code

{
//your code
this.dataGridView1.CellClick += new System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellClick);
}
void dataGridView1_CellClick(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
           {
               //  MessageBox.Show(dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[1].Value.ToString());
               try
               {
                   if (dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells["checkbox"].Value == null || dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells["checkbox"].Value.ToString().ToUpper() == "FALSE")
                       dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells["checkbox"].Value = true;
                   else
                       dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells["checkbox"].Value = false;


               }
               catch (Exception str)
               {
                   MessageBox.Show(str.Message);
               }

           }

@abelLazm: OMG! You saved me, you you! I'm so so grateful :=) I've been reading msdn and about DataGridView and explored their sample codes there on the off-chance something will work but just made my head ache. And here you are with this clean code...

Questions:
1. What does this mean?

this.dataGridView1.CellClick += new System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellClick);

2. It doesn't work if I cast it into a checkbox, like what I did with my code. And so now I'm curious why it has to be .Value.ToString().ToUpper() == "FALSE" and not just .Value.ToString() == "False" or "false".

I'm so relieved with your solution. Again, thanks so much!

You are Welcome :)
Answer number one:

this.dataGridView1.CellClick += new System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellClick);

is the event generated when you click on any cell of Datagrid like you were using cellcontentclick

Answer number two: I used .Value.ToString().ToUpper() == "FALSE" because i was not sure about, is it False or false when converted to string.

Oops, OK, I just found out I can't cast it into a checkbox, but I can cast it into a boolean type, the same code I used above in reply to @ddanbe.

And so, here's the complete code that works now:

private void FormMain_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
Class1.displayempl(dataGridViewempl);
            dataGridViewempl.CellClick += new System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventHandler(dataGridViewempl_CellClick);
}

private void dataGridViewempl_CellClick(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
        {
if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex == 6)
                    {
                        if (dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value != null)
                        {
                        dataGridViewempl.BeginEdit(true);
                        bool checkstate = (bool)dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value;

                        if (checkstate == false)
                            dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = true;
                        else
                            dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = false;
                        }
                        else

                    dataGridViewempl.CurrentCell.Value = true;
                    }
}

To @ddanbe and @abelLazm, thanks so much for the solutions. And to all the others, for your time :=)
