DataGridViewColumn.Resizable Property


Gets or sets a value indicating whether the column is resizable.

 virtual property System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewTriState Resizable { System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewTriState get(); void set(System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewTriState value); };
public override System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewTriState Resizable { get; set; }
member this.Resizable : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewTriState with get, set
Public Overrides Property Resizable As DataGridViewTriState

Property Value


One of the DataGridViewTriState values. The default is True.


The following code example uses this property to fix the size of the third column so that the user cannot change the column width.

dataGridView1->Columns[ 2 ]->Resizable = DataGridViewTriState::False;

dataGridView1.Columns[2].Resizable =
DataGridView1.Columns(2).Resizable = DataGridViewTriState.False


If the Resizable property is False, the user will not be able to manually adjust the column width.

By default, the Resizable property value is based on the DataGridView.AllowUserToResizeColumns property value. If you explicitly set Resizable to True or False, however, the control value is ignored. Set Resizable to NotSet to restore the value-inheritance behavior.

Because NotSet restores the value inheritance, the Resizable property will never return a NotSet value unless the column has not been added to a DataGridView control. If you need to determine whether the Resizable property value of a column is inherited, check its State property. If the State property value includes the ResizableSet flag, the Resizable property value is not inherited.
