Event Type



The following code example illustrates the use of this event. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewRowContextMenuStripNeededEventArgs class overview.

private void dataGridView1_DataBindingComplete(object sender,
    DataGridViewBindingCompleteEventArgs e)
    // Hide some of the columns.
    dataGridView1.Columns["EmployeeID"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["Address"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["TitleOfCourtesy"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["BirthDate"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["HireDate"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["PostalCode"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["Photo"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["Notes"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["ReportsTo"].Visible = false;
    dataGridView1.Columns["PhotoPath"].Visible = false;

    // Disable sorting for the DataGridView.
    foreach (DataGridViewColumn i in
        i.SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable;

Private Sub dataGridView1_DataBindingComplete(ByVal sender As Object, _
ByVal e As DataGridViewBindingCompleteEventArgs) _
Handles dataGridView1.DataBindingComplete

    ' Hide some of the columns.
    With dataGridView1
        .Columns("EmployeeID").Visible = False
        .Columns("Address").Visible = False
        .Columns("TitleOfCourtesy").Visible = False
        .Columns("BirthDate").Visible = False
        .Columns("HireDate").Visible = False
        .Columns("PostalCode").Visible = False
        .Columns("Photo").Visible = False
        .Columns("Notes").Visible = False
        .Columns("ReportsTo").Visible = False
        .Columns("PhotoPath").Visible = False
    End With

    ' Disable sorting for the DataGridView.
    Dim i As DataGridViewColumn
    For Each i In dataGridView1.Columns
        i.SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable
    Next i


End Sub


This event is raised when the contents of the data source change or when the value of the DataSource, DataMember, or BindingContext property changes.

Handling this event is useful, for example, to programmatically resize rows and columns based on content updates. For more information, see Sizing Options in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

For more information about how to handle events, see Handling and Raising Events.
