DataGridView.ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged Event


Occurs when the value of the DefaultCellStyle property for a column changes.

 event System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewColumnEventHandler ^ ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged;
public event System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewColumnEventHandler ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged;
member this.ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewColumnEventHandler 
Public Custom Event ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged As DataGridViewColumnEventHandler 


The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged 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 ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged event.

private void DataGridView1_ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged(Object sender, DataGridViewColumnEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Column", e.Column );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged Event" );
Private Sub DataGridView1_ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged(sender as Object, e as DataGridViewColumnEventArgs) _ 
     Handles DataGridView1.ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Column", e.Column)
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"ColumnDefaultCellStyleChanged Event")

End Sub


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