GridRowValidationEventArgs.Row Property

Gets the processed row.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v24.1.Core.dll


public virtual object Row { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

An object that represents the row currently being validated.


This example shows how to check if a user enters valid data into a row. Handle the GridViewBase.ValidateRow and GridViewBase.InvalidRowException events to validate the focused row’s data. If the data is invalid, do not allow the user to move focus to another row until the invalid values are corrected.

The Task class implements the IDataErrorInfo interface and allows you to get error descriptions for the entire row and individual cells (data source fields). Error icons appear in cells that contain invalid values. Hover the mouse pointer over an error icon to display a tooltip with an error description.
