DataGridView.DefaultCellStyleChanged Event


Occurs when the value of the DefaultCellStyle property changes.

 event EventHandler ^ DefaultCellStyleChanged;
public event EventHandler DefaultCellStyleChanged;
member this.DefaultCellStyleChanged : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event DefaultCellStyleChanged As EventHandler 

Event Type



The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the DefaultCellStyleChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type DataGridView named DataGridView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the DefaultCellStyleChanged event.

private void DataGridView1_DefaultCellStyleChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the DataGridView.DefaultCellStyleChanged event.");
Private Sub DataGridView1_DefaultCellStyleChanged(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles DataGridView1.DefaultCellStyleChanged

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the DataGridView.DefaultCellStyleChanged event.")

End Sub


This event occurs when any properties of the DataGridViewCellStyle returned by the DefaultCellStyle property are set to new values or when the DefaultCellStyle property is set to a new DataGridViewCellStyle with at least one property value different than the previous cell style object.
