As data is entered; trap the CellLeave or CellValidating event and set the cells value accordingly.

You are looking at the Cells value not the Row, trap the CellsValidated event and check the Cells value, if it is Null set it to zero.

In your code above dataGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells[1].Value.ToString(); is an instruction to assign a value, you do not assign it anywhere and it is of no use to set the cell value and it is hard coded to only look at Cell[1].

Using the CellsValidated will give you the actual Cell the user just entered data into.

Something along these lines:

private void dataGridView1_CellValidated(System.Object sender, System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellValidatingEventArgs e)
if (dataGridView1.CurrentCell.IsInEditMode) {
if (dataGridView1.CurrentCell.Value == Null) {
dataGridView1.CurrentCell.Value = 0

I am write your code in cellvalidated event but empty cell not print in zero.
How to set empty cells zero.

1 solution

After binding the data call the below function to make the empty cells as 0

private void MakeZeroForEmptyCells()
           foreach (DataGridViewRow row in dataGridView1.Rows)
               foreach (DataGridViewCell cell in row.Cells)
                   string value = Convert.ToString(cell.Value);
                   cell.Value = string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(value) ? 0 : cell.Value;


and you shall call this function on CellValueChanged to update the data when the cell is filled with empty value.
