Grid Object disposed error

Apr 30, 2009 at 8:20 AM

I get "cannot access a disposed object , Object Name: 'Grid'" error when i close a mdi child form which uses grid object.

My application has a main form (mdi parent) and can open child forms (mdi child). Mdi child forms are same type and they use sourcegrid. I used grid component and added a image button to delete currently delete button clicked row. So each row has this column format

Text 1 - Text 2 - Delete Image Button (has event on click)

Event removes button clicked row. Event has only below code which works.

The error occurs when i click delete image on grid AND then save&close child form. I implemented a button that can add new items to grid. When i add new item AND save&close child form, no error occurs. But when i remove row and close child form it gives error always. Here is the functions i use for grid.

        private void DeleteSelectedRow(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (grid.Selection.GetSelectionRegion().GetRowsIndex().Length > 0)

        private void btnAddNew_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            int row = grid.RowsCount;

            grid[row, 0] = new SourceGrid.Cells.Cell("", mTextEditor);
            grid[row, 1] = new SourceGrid.Cells.Cell("", mLinkEditor);
            grid[row, 2] = GenerateDeleteButton();

        private SourceGrid.Cells.Cell GenerateDeleteButton()
            SourceGrid.Cells.Cell btnDelete = new SourceGrid.Cells.Cell();
            btnDelete.Image = Images.LinkDelete;
            SourceGrid.Cells.Controllers.Button btnController = new SourceGrid.Cells.Controllers.Button();
            btnController.Executed += new EventHandler(DeleteSelectedRow);
            SourceGrid.Cells.Views.Cell btnDeleteView = new SourceGrid.Cells.Views.Cell();
            btnDeleteView.BackColor = SystemColors.Window;
            btnDeleteView.ForeColor = Color.White;
            btnDeleteView.ImageAlignment = DevAge.Drawing.ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;

            btnDelete.View = btnDeleteView;
            btnDelete.ToolTipText = "Delete Link";

            return btnDelete;

I suspect my delete code is not valid so it causes application to crash. I am not accessing the grid object after i close the child form. Any help is appreciated.

After some research in sourcegrid sources, i found out the error.

I delete the row with above pasted method and although row is deleted SourceGrid.Cells.Controllers.MouseSelection.mScrollTimer_Tick still continues to tick. Because EndScrollTracking() is not called so ticker never stops.

I had to modify sourcegrid code. I pasted below here. I

modified SourceGrid.Cells.Controllers.MouseSelection.mScrollTimer_Tick function:

        private void mScrollTimer_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (mCapturedGrid == null )

            if (! mCapturedGrid.IsDisposed)
                //Scroll the view if required
                Point mousePoint = mCapturedGrid.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition);
            // else EndScrollTracking( mCapturedGrid);  <= didnot test this but maybe it works too

I hope it helps for others who get this error. I am open to any other delete row method.

Thanks for  telling about your findings!

I've included your suggestion into SourceGrid, so that same bug wount happen again.   That part with timer is a tricky one, and it caused some troubles a few times already.
