Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the BorderWidths method of the DataGridViewCell class to determine the available drawing area in a cell. This code example is part of a larger example provided in How to: Disable Buttons in a Button Column in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

protected override void Paint(Graphics graphics,
    Rectangle clipBounds, Rectangle cellBounds, int rowIndex,
    DataGridViewElementStates elementState, object value,
    object formattedValue, string errorText,

    DataGridViewPaintParts paintParts)
{
    // The button cell is disabled, so paint the border,  
    // background, and disabled button for the cell.
    if (!this.enabledValue)
    {
        // Draw the cell background, if specified.
        if ((paintParts & DataGridViewPaintParts.Background) ==
            DataGridViewPaintParts.Background)

Remarks

The default width of the cell border is one pixel. Use the following DataGridViewAdvancedCellBorderStyle values to modify the width of the border:

In addition, if the DividerHeight property is set for the cell's owning row, the rectangle's height is increased by the value of DividerHeight. If the DividerWidth property is set for the cell's owning column, the rectangle's width will be increased by the value of DividerWidth.
