Hello to all!

I've a GridViewMaskBoxColumn, where float are displayed using the exponental notation.  When I try to change a cells value, I can put the wished values, but when I leave the editor, the application crashs (even if I put only a '0')

The crash happens immediately after leaving the 'CellEndEdit'.

What went wrong in my source?

Thanks for your help!

Hello Andreas,

Thank you for writing.

The problem in this case is the way you are parsing the value of the cell in the CellEndEdit handler. There are cases where the value can be null or different than a number. You need to safely create a string, even if the value is null and then use the TryParse method:
void Grid_CellEndEdit(object sender, GridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Column.Name == "Gleitpunkt")
    {
        string value = e.Row.Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Value + "";
        float floatValue;
        if (float.TryParse(value, out floatValue))
        {
            //do some logic with floatValue
        }
    }
}

I hope this helps.

Regards,
George

Hello George,

thanks for answer. I tried out your changes, but it does not help - the application crashs in the same way like before, even when I include all the lines in a try-catch block. The fault does not occure in  Grid_CellEndEdit()

I've also included a try-catch blocks mostly all methods - no success to catch the fault...
I've also deactivated writing to this cell, even to the completely grid .. same problem.

I only have one (main-)thread running, but it seems to me as it is something like a synchronisation fault? Maybe it help when I switch off updating the grid, preventing the grid to handle more events..? How can I do this?

Regards

Hello Andreas,

Thank you for writing.

I can confirm that there is an exception when the regex mask is used. The issue is already logged and can be found on the following address: UI for Winforms Feedback Portal - FIX. RadGridView - GridViewMaskBoxColumn with regex mask throws an exception upon validation. Due to the nature of the issue I cannot provide you with a workaround for the time being. You can wait for our next release 2014 Q3 which will include the fix for this matter.

Let me know, should you have other questions.

Regards,
George

Hello George,

Thank you for your anwer. It's good to know, that the problem it is not in my code, in the installation or in my PC...
It's not a problem for me to wait until the new release. Meanwhile I'll not use the regex und verify the result by my code.

Would be fine, if it will work in the Q3.

Regards,

Andreas
