Event Data

The CellValueChanging event's data class is TreeListCellValueChangedEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Cell Gets or sets the CellValue object consisting of information about the cell being processed. Inherited from TreeListCellValueEventArgs.
Column Gets a column that contains the edited cell. Inherited from TreeListCellValueEventArgs.
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates the present state of the event handling for a routed event as it travels the route. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Node Gets the processed node. Inherited from TreeListNodeEventArgs.
OldValue Gets the cell’s previous value.
OriginalSource Gets the original reporting source as determined by pure hit testing, before any possible Source adjustment by a parent class. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
RoutedEvent Gets or sets the RoutedEvent associated with this RoutedEventArgs instance. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Row Gets the processed row. Inherited from TreeListNodeEventArgs.
Source Gets or sets a reference to the object that raised the event. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Value Gets or sets the processed cell’s value. Inherited from TreeListCellValueEventArgs.

The event data class exposes the following methods:

Method Description
InvokeEventHandler(Delegate, Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a way to invoke event handlers in a type-specific way, which can increase efficiency over the base implementation. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
OnSetSource(Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a notification callback entry point whenever the value of the Source property of an instance changes. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.


The CellValueChanging event is raised each time a cell’s value is being edited (an end-user types or deletes a character, chooses a value from the dropdown list, etc.). The event provides a parameter whose properties can be used to identify the node and column containing the edited cell, and its current value.

The CellValueChanging event does not fire when changing cell values in code. Handle this event if you need to provide an immediate response to end-user actions. For instance, you may close the editor and focus the next cell when the edit value’s length exceeds the predefined value.

After a cell’s value has been changed, the TreeListView.CellValueChanged event is raised.
