Default Problem with datagridview cell data formatting

Hi All,
I am working on a vb6 to vb.net migration project using vs 3.5. I have a datagridview.in a particular cell of this grid, user has to enter only numeric data. but after user enter data, itshould become concainated with a $ symbol (eg: if user enter 34, the cell value should become $34). And if he/she presses the hyphen ("-") in the key board, the data (ie. $34) should become -$34 and if again presses the hyphen button in key board, the data should become $34.

Any idea of how to do this.Any help appreciated.

Regards,
Sumith

I got it.
First, need to format the column as currency
Code:
DataGridView1.Columns("C").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "c"
Next, add eventhandler for cells
Code:
Private Sub dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(ByVal sender As Object, _       ByVal e As DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs) _       Handles DataGridView1.EditingControlShowing       Dim txtEdit As TextBox = e.Control       RemoveHandler txtEdit.KeyPress, AddressOf txtEdit_Keypress       AddHandler txtEdit.KeyPress, AddressOf txtEdit_Keypressend sub
And, in txtedit_keypress,

Code:
Private Sub txtEdit_Keypress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs)
 If e.KeyChar = "-" Then
                Dim curCell As DataGridViewCell = DataGridView1.CurrentCell
                If curCell.ColumnIndex = 2 Then
                    curCell.Value = -CDec(curCell.Value)
                    DataGridView1.RefreshEdit()
                    e.Handled = True
                End If
            End If
end sub
This will work as desired.
