The following code example first sets a new font, and sets the PreferredRowHeight to the same height as the new font.

   void ChangeFontHeight( DataGrid^ myGrid )
      myGrid->Font = gcnew System::Drawing::Font(
         "Microsoft Sans Serif",
         15, System::Drawing::FontStyle::Regular );
      myGrid->PreferredRowHeight = myGrid->Font->Height;
private void ChangeFontHeight(DataGrid myGrid)
   myGrid.Font = new System.Drawing.Font
      ("Microsoft Sans Serif",
      15, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular);
   myGrid.PreferredRowHeight = myGrid.Font.Height;

Private Sub ChangeFontHeight(ByVal myGrid As DataGrid)
   ' Change the font first.
   myGrid.Font = New System.Drawing.Font _
   ("Microsoft Sans Serif", 15, _

   myGrid.PreferredRowHeight = myGrid.Font.Height
End Sub


Set this property before resetting the DataSource and DataMember properties (either separately, or through the SetDataBinding method), or the property will have no effect.
