Examples

The following code example illustrates the use of this type. This example is part of a larger example available in How to: Customize the Appearance of Rows in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

// Paints the custom selection background for selected rows.
void dataGridView1_RowPrePaint(object sender,
        DataGridViewRowPrePaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Do not automatically paint the focus rectangle.
    e.PaintParts &= ~DataGridViewPaintParts.Focus;

    // Determine whether the cell should be painted
    // with the custom selection background.
    if ((e.State & DataGridViewElementStates.Selected) ==
                DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
    {
        // Calculate the bounds of the row.
        Rectangle rowBounds = new Rectangle(
            this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth, e.RowBounds.Top,
            this.dataGridView1.Columns.GetColumnsWidth(
                DataGridViewElementStates.Visible) -
            this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset + 1,
            e.RowBounds.Height);

        // Paint the custom selection background.
        using (Brush backbrush =
            new System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientBrush(rowBounds,
                this.dataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.SelectionBackColor,
                e.InheritedRowStyle.ForeColor,
                System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientMode.Horizontal))
        {
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(backbrush, rowBounds);
        }
    }
}
' Paints the custom selection background for selected rows.
Sub dataGridView1_RowPrePaint(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewRowPrePaintEventArgs) _
    Handles dataGridView1.RowPrePaint

    ' Do not automatically paint the focus rectangle.
    e.PaintParts = e.PaintParts And Not DataGridViewPaintParts.Focus

    ' Determine whether the cell should be painted with the 
    ' custom selection background.
    If (e.State And DataGridViewElementStates.Selected) = _
        DataGridViewElementStates.Selected Then

        ' Calculate the bounds of the row.
        Dim rowBounds As New Rectangle( _
            Me.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth, e.RowBounds.Top, _
            Me.dataGridView1.Columns.GetColumnsWidth( _
            DataGridViewElementStates.Visible) - _
            Me.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset + 1, _
            e.RowBounds.Height)

        ' Paint the custom selection background.
        Dim backbrush As New _
            System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientBrush(rowBounds, _
            Me.dataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.SelectionBackColor, _
            e.InheritedRowStyle.ForeColor, _
            System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)
        Try
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(backbrush, rowBounds)
        Finally
            backbrush.Dispose()
        End Try
    End If

End Sub

Remarks

This enumeration is used by the protected DataGridViewCell.Paint method and by handlers for the CellPainting, RowPrePaint, and RowPostPaint events of the DataGridView control.
